Ordinance No. 2017-7 Designating the structure at 649 W. Bentley Street, as an Orlando Historic Landmark


The Historic Preservation Board directed Historic Preservation Staff to research the eligibility of historic landmark status of the Davis Armory.  Staff presented these findings at the August 3, 2016 Historic Preservation Board regular meeting with a recommendation of Approval of Orlando Historic Landmark status. Staff found that the property is significant for the history, culture, integrity of location, design, materials and association with significant events. Staff found that the building meets the criteria A and C in Section 65.720.  The HPB voted unanimously to approve the Orlando Landmark status.
