Petition Background

Summary: Property owner/developer seeks amendment to Orange County Florida Comprehensive Plan to change Greenbelt and Wetland Conservation designations to Estate Home District permitting up to 140 homes on land currently approved for 12 single-family homes. As one of the last remaining undisturbed natural areas in western Orange County, Florida, this land is a key segment of a regional wildlife corridor and provides critical diverse habitat for native and migrating wildlife including species of conservation concern, threatened and endangered status including Florida Black Bear and American Bald Eagles. The best use of this land is as a permanent conservation preserve for the benefit of future generations and preservation of our unique natural Florida environment.
