Proposed ordinance #2014-28, relating to regional public facility identification signage at the Citrus Bowl.

The Orlando Venues Project Office is requesting approval of an Ordinance to allow exterior signage at the Orlando Citrus Bowl, pursuant to the procedures established in Section 64.320 of the Land Development Code.

The Orlando Citrus Bowl is an open air football stadium located south of Lake Lorna Doone, generally bounded by West Church Street, South Rio Grande Avenue, the East-West Expressway (408), and Tampa Avenue.  A major reconstruction of the Citrus Bowl is currently underway and the stadium will re-open in Fall of 2014.  The Citrus Bowl will host a wide variety of Sporting events, concerts, shows, and other regional events.  The facility is accessible to downtown and visible from the East-West Expressway.

Section 64.320 of the Land Development Code (Regional Public Facility Identification Signage) provides that the City Council may approve specific signage for public landmarks and public regional facilities which serve the greater metropolitan area and/or the tourist population via an Ordinance specifying the signage.  Attached is a Planning Official Determination indicating the proposed signage at the Orlando Citrus Bowl conforms to the requirement of Section 64.320.  The type, size, and location of signs, proposed at the Orlando Citrus Bowl are shown on the attached Orlando citrus Bowl Identification Signage Package.  The Appearance Review Board (ARB) recommended approval of the sign package, subject to conditions, on May 28th, 2014.

Fiscal & Efficiency Data: No fiscal impact.
