draft Draft

The City Clerk read, by title, a resolution of the Town Council of the Town of Eatonville, Florida, the City Council of the City of Maitland, Florida and the City Commission of the City of Winter Park, Florida supporting the expansion of the Orange County owned Wymore Road; and provide for an effective date.

The City Manager stated this is a joint resolution between Eatonville, Maitland and Winter Park in support of widening the Wymore Road in light of the 100+ acres that can be redeveloped on either side of I-4, in Eatonville, currently served by a two-lane road from Lee Road to Kennedy Boulevard. She noted if the acreage is redeveloped at a higher density than what it is now, the traffic congestion will become a problem backing up on Lee Road and Wymore Road.

Mayor McDonald stated this joint resolution between the three cities will go before the Orange County Board of County Commissioners requesting to four lane the portion of Wymore Road running north from Lee Road to Kennedy Boulevard with one of the primary concerns being, with the redevelopment of the Hungerford property, it will become critical to expand Wymore Road. He noted the Town of Eatonville will have the joint resolution on their Agenda next week and that the resolution has been conveyed to the City of Winter Park.

Mayor McDonald requested public comments. There being no one who wished to be heard, Mayor McDonald closed the public comment period.

After discussion, a motion was made to adopt a joint resolution between the Town of Eatonville, City of Maitland and City of Winter Park in support of the widening of Wymore Road from Lee Road to Kennedy Boulevard.
