WINTER GARDEN In recognition of the West Orange Warriors softball team's remarkable run to a state championship, the Winter Garden City Commission will honor the team at its 6:30 p.m. meeting May 26 at City Hall.
Expected among the team in attendance are dominant ace Lauren Mathis and head coach Todd LaNeave, Florida's Miss Softball and Coach of the Year, respectively.
The commission also plans to address an amendment to its 2015-16 budget, the site plan for Culver's near West Colonial Drive and South Dillard Street and the rezoning of Premer Property Urban Village -- almost 127 acres around 17000 Marsh Road -- from no zoning to Urban Village Planned Unit Development.
Within the development parcel at the former Exclusive Inn site at the northwest corner of South Dillard Street and West Colonial Drive would be a 4,253-square-foot Culver's restaurant with landscaping improvements, on a 0.87-acre site slightly closer to Winter Garden-Vineland Road than South Dillard Street. In addition to Culver's and the Wawa gas station right on that northwest corner, developers at Intram plan to have three other buildings in the parcel, according to plans.
The Premer Property plan would be for 107 single-family lots on the parcel, which abuts the north shore of Lake Avalon. Among 28.74 acres of open space, plans include a 2.87-acre park and recreational facilities: a pool, a cabana, a neighborhood and butterfly garden, a playground, bike paths, a neighborhood pier and a dog park along the lake. Based on neighbors' concerns of water access leading to reduced water quality for Lake Avalon, city staff has stipulated a buoy system with floats around the neighborhood pier to prevent motorized watercrafts from accessing the lake.
