Save East Orlando - 15,000 MORE CARS- Big Econ River

Postby CRACKERSTYLE » Thu Jan 02, 2014 9:57 pm

In a nut shell developers are trying to build 5500 homes/apartments/commercial business centers from Highway 50 North to the Seminole County line and from S.Tanner Road to C.R. 419. This borders the Big Econ River. As of know the Econ is the line in the sand of no developing to the east of the Big Econ. Rite now mainly agriculture from big Econ to the St. Johns River. If this goes thru nothing will stop them until they reach the St. Johns.
Please look @ our Facebook page Save East Orlando. https://www.facebook.com/saveeastorlando. To sign the petition and get the info to e-mail your reps telling them NO to any development East of the Econ.
The traffic is a night mare as of now and will only get worse with 10-15k more vehicles.
Spread the word.
Thanx

You are correct-50 is being widened
BUT
the widening of 50 will still NOT handle the traffic we have NOW.
ADD 10-15k more cars on top of what we have

ALSO
This is the only road that is being improved. Several of the other roads will stay the same for years.
Just like South Alafaya trail- Avalon Park was built 10 years ago and they are just NOW widening it.......

Also 18 million (yes million) town houses are to be built @ the South end of Alafaya trail-Innovation Way.

With all due respect we appreciate your hard work on the roads but I have been to countless meetings and Orange County told us we are screwed-the roads are broken and they are out of money.

Hwy 50 needs to be 8 laned and a fly over @ Alafaya intersection to even have a chance but the budget will not allow 8 lanes (I believe) it's only 6
Whats 1 more lane gonna do ?
Build it rite the 1st time-8 lanes


Sorry for the rant....

PLEASE Check out website !!!!

cracker style most of these roads are state roads which are regulated and paid by FDOT not orange county which is the meetings you attended and they claimed they are out of money. Also avalon park got its own road when it was built its called avalon park blvd
(which was paid for by the developer of avalon). so Alafaya was irrelevant at the time. Believe me i dont want town on top of us and i damn sure dont want it coming all the way to christmas where i live but any housing construction will sure help jump start the economy, lord knows we all wish it was like it was in 2005/2006

done. It may help the economy but thats temporary in the grand scheme of things. The economy will turn up and turn down like it has forever but once the land is graded and covered in concrete and asphalt we cant put it back. :dontknow:

@ The meetings Orange County is saying it's there roads and they are out of money-regardless the money set aside for the www.Saveeastorlando.com community has been spent elsewhere.
Avalon Park-I am well aware of the subdivision-They are a HUGE reason for our problems !!!! Major development with NO Infrastructure. Of course the developers paid for Avalon Park Blvd-how else would they get into the neighborhood.
Most subdivisions are built next to an existing road. Avalon was ranch land so the developers really had no choice in the matter.
As for housing construction.......illegal immigrants will be the ones making the money and a few head Americans and then we will be left with another
poor planning,

florida's population will pass new york city sometime in 2014. wich equalls verry big money. in the trillions. and is #4 in the U.S. RIGHT NOW.
nothing--but nothing is going to stop the growth!!!!!!
the growth has (in my opinion) ruined florida.
we are losing our rights daily.
this kind of money=big business no petiton will stop it.
BUT WE HAVE GOT TO BE HEARD!
