Three items to watch for at the June 23 Winter Garden city commission meeting:
Brandy Creek Drainage
Drainage issues within the Brandy Creek subdivision of Winter Garden has concerned residents, as groundwater has ponded in areas not intended for waters. Residents, fearing health and safety issues of such drainage, have asked the City for help.
According to the city of Winter Garden, more than 70% of lot owners in the subdivision have signed a petition asking the city to move forward with the repair of the drainage.
The city has agreed to pay two-thirds of the project out of the stormwater fund. Tonight, commissioners will vote on a non-ad valorem assessment to cover the resident’s one-third share of the cost of the project.
Commissioners will also vote on a special event approval which will allow the Crooked Can Brewery to host a special private event 7 to 11 p.m. Thursday, July 21 for 500 Microsoft employees.
The event would have a stage with live entertainment and would require the closure of South Central Avenue from Plant Street to Smith Street.
CRA Advisory Board
The CRA Advisory Board will also convene to vote on a facade matching grant applied for by Winter Garden Investments at 100 W. Plant Street.
