WINTER GARDEN — City leaders voted unanimously to approve the final plant and right-of-way maintenance agreement for phase 1 of the McAllister Landing subdivision.

McAllister Landing is a 78.5-acre residential development located at 315 E Fullers Cross Road. Phase 1 is platted for 133 single-family lots. The property is zoned as a PUD (planned unit development) and has a future land-use designation of LR (low-density residential).

Community Development Director Steve Pash said the subdivision is located along Lake Apopka and is already developed with roads but used to be an orange grove.

“They’ve already built the subdivision,” Pash said. “Most of the lots are 75 feet wide. Those (lots) that are along Lake Apopka will be 90 feet wide. The right-of-way agreement allows them to plant landscaping within the right-of-ways and requires that the HOA maintain it. The plat is consistent with the approved PUD ordinance. It has been reviewed and approved by the Development Review Committee.”

Pash added phase 1 of the subdivision includes two lakeside lots, and phase 2 includes more.

"With Phase 2, there are a total of 191 single-family houses in the neighborhood," Pash said.

Commissioners then voted unanimously to approve the use of $10,480 from the 2017 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant to pay for field force equipment for the Winter Garden Police Department, which includes riot helmets, riot gloves, gas masks and other gear. The grant was awarded to Orange County and will be divided among the county’s municipalities, Deputy Police Chief Stephen Graham said.

“This (grant) is a county-wide state solicitation,” Graham said. “The (police) agencies in the county were given a lump sum of a little over $322,000 and each municipality gets a portion of that.”
