Gaston Edwards Park (Lake Ivanhoe) City Planning Meeting

Today, Wedsnesday May 19th
4:00 pm-6:00 pm
Bob Swanson’s Ivanhoe Row building at 1219 N. Orange Avenue

As was briefly discussed at our last Lake Formosa Neighborhood Association meeting, there is to be a meeting this Wednesday regarding the City’s plans for Gaston Edwards Park (Lake Ivanhoe). Several of the merchants from Ivanhoe Village will be there and Lake Formosa Neighborhood should also well represented. Some businesses will be pushing the City to provide more parking in the park, which will mean less green space unfortunately. In addition the Florida Dept. of Transportation needs to restore one of the southbound travel lanes along Orange to parking as it used to be. This was something that we asked for during our discussions with FDOT regarding the Orange Avenue resurfacing, but they were not willing to consider this, even though the numerical projections support it.

Please come represent Lake Formosa Neighborhood and help preserve the Park from future encroachments including additional asphalt paving.
