The attached ordinance will rezone the City- and state-owned Lorna Doone park lands, from H to P. Lorna Doone Park is located between W. Church St. and W. Central Blvd. and between S. Nashville and S. Tampa Avenues, but not including the Elks Lodge-owned property at 1830 W. Central Blvd. The applicant is the City of Orlando.
The zoning request is tied to a master plan (MPL2016-00054) for Lorna Doone Park, identifying future improvements throughout the developed and undeveloped portions of the park. The master plan approval will be the effective date of the rezoning.
The underlying future land use of the property is Public-Recreation-Institutional, so the proposed P (Public Use) zoning will be consistent with the future land use designation. As noted, the rezoning does not include the Elks Lodge-owned parcel at 1830 W. Central Blvd.
The Municipal Planning Board recommended approval of the rezoning on December 20, 2016, with the City Council approving those MPB minutes on January 23, 2017.
