The Ocoee City Commission will hold its next regular City Commission meeting at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday,  Dec. 6. 

The consent agenda includes the approval of the cost proposal for the disaster debris removal services with CrowderGulf LLC, the approval of the acceptance of the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) grant agreement that would be awarded to the Ocoee Police Department to fund a victim witness advocate position and the approval of the contracted sidewalk repairs by using the existing contract with APEC LLC the City of Kissimmee is currently utilizing in order to expedite said sidewalk repairs.

The commission will perform the first reading of ordinance for the Howard Property to be annexed into the city and to be rezoned to R-1AA (single family dwelling district) in order to develop a single family subdivision. The commission will also perform the first reading of ordinance for a substantial amendment to the Ocoee Town Shops PUD to convert it into a Wawa gas station with a smaller square footage and use the remaining space for future retail/restaurant developments. Last but not least, the commission will perform the first reading of ordinance for the adoption of the five-year schedule of the capital improvements that are part of the comprehensive plan amendment. 

The regular agenda includes the approval of a memorandum between Montierre Development, PLLC and the City of Ocoee pertaining to a regional sports and entertainment complex of mixed-use development deal that would consist of 16 baseball fields, nine batting cages, multi-purpose fields, recreation par and playground areas as well as a splash pad area and a welcome center. In order for the project to happen though, Montierre will need to accumulate about 148 acres along the Ocoee Apopka Road. 

The regular agenda also includes the discussion of an invoice that was submitted to the commission by Jennifer Yon Agency pertaining to the Ocoee Remembrance Event and the Unity Festival that took place early November. The commission also will revise the bylaws of the Human Relations Diversity Board in order to better meet the interests of the city. 

Citizens can attend in person at the Ocoee City Hall at 1 N. Bluford Ave., Ocoee.
