As the city of Oviedo and the Florida Department of Transportation inch closer toward flattening much of the town’s historic core, several downtown business owners are determined to not let their livelihoods crumble once the buildings they now occupy are knocked down.

Border skirmish: 5,000-home Rybolt plan in Orange riles Seminole residents

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/seminole/os-seminole-orange-rybold-project-20140209,0,2997416.story

Zembower, 53, and other Chuluota residents are now concerned that a plan to build nearly 5,000 homes in the Lake Pickett Road area in adjacent Orange County will bring thousands of additional cars into that corner of Seminole County, spoil the waterways and clear the way for more development. To do this, Orange County commissioners would have to rezone the land to allow more houses.

Controversial Chuluota church now up for sale

Denied efforts to expand, Cornerstone Baptist seeks new home

By Marisa Ramiccio | October 02, 2013

After years of struggle with the neighboring Chuluota community and multiple attempts to expand, it appears the Cornerstone Baptist Church is ready to move on.

Last year, a door was closed on the Cornerstone Baptist Church when the Seminole County Board of Adjustment denied the church’s request for expansion. But now that the church has been put up for sale, the opportunity to move into a bigger building may open up.

“I think if they sell the church for what they’re asking, they have a darn good chance of moving to a bigger parcel [of land],” said Deborah Schafer, a member of the Chuluota Community Association.

The Florida Wildlife Corridor

I would encourage you to either find this on cable or buy the video, as a conservation, elected official, county or city manager  planner, developer, builder  or Florida resident it will show the importance of this corridor to future generations. Thank you to all that produces this amazing lesson.

http://www.floridawildlifecorridor.org/

The Florida Wildlife Corridor aims to protect and restore connected landscapes throughout the Florida Peninsula to create a viable corridor from the Everglades to Georgia. The corridor addresses the fragmentation of natural landscapes and watersheds from the Everglades ecosystem north. Contributing to the fragmentation problem is the disconnect between the perceptions of Floridians, and the real need to keep natural systems connected. The Florida Wildlife Corridor is positioned to mend the perception gap through an education and awareness campaign that demonstrates the connection between the landscapes and watersheds. If we show Floridians the panthers, bears, native cultures, ranchlands and rivers and how they are all connected, then they can help us make the Florida Wildlife Corridor a reality. Generating Awareness

The centerpiece of this strategy is the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition, which launched January 17, 2012, and traversed the Everglades ecosystem into Big Cypress, over to the Everglades Agricultural Area, back to the Okaloacoochee Slough, across the Caloosahatchee, over to Babcock Ranch, back along Fisheating Creek toward Lake Okeechobee, up the Kissimmee River with excursions toward the Lake Wales Ridge, up the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, east around Orlando into Ocala National Forest, and north along the O2O corridor (Ocala to Osceola) to Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. The trek covered over 1,000 miles in 100 days.
