Desperate to convince you Leary is a bad guy, Mackinnon sent a picture of a dense development showing what she portends would happen if Leary was elected Mayor. The picture is a fraud intended to scare the people of Winter Park.
What the picture does not show is that the planned development proposal required a limit of 47% total building coverage and 25% green space. The picture shows virtually 100% of the land covered with building and virtually no green space.
Section 58.83 (e)(3): Maximum building lot coverage. The maximum building lot coverage (footprint) of the project shall not exceed 47 percent for any project limited to a maximum height of three stories and shall not exceed 55 percent for any project with more than three stories.
Section 58.83 (e)(4): Minimum open space. The land area of the PD project within the private property not covered by buildings shall constitute the project’s open space. At least 25 percent of the total dimensions of the private property shall be natural pervious green space and shall not be covered by any impervious surfaces or be utilized as an above-ground required stormwater retention area.
Be sure to vote on Tuesday, March 10th and please support Steve Leary for sensible leadership.
