Here are some details on the Orange County Pickett Projects that will affect Chuluota, the surrounding rural area and all of eastern Orange County.
Orange County Planning and Zoning has approved two developments in the area of Lake Pickett in east Orange County on the Seminole County border amounting to approximately 4,500 homes.
One project is south of Lake Pickett Road and is known as the GROW Development, which has a rural and farming theme. The developer on this property has worked closely with the community and has afforded us a covenant and deed restriction which will ensure what is approved is what is built. The community is in favor of this project.
The second project known as Sustany will be built on the Rybolt Ranch and is located north of Lake Pickett Road on the Rural boundary of Seminole County. This developer has not afforded any transition which mirrors the large 5 acre lots in Seminole County on its boundary and the 2-3 acre lots on its eastern boundary in Orange County.
The problem: the approval of these development included a directive that Orange County study extending McCullough Road across the Econ river over to Chuluota Road (CR 419) as well as permitting commercial development on the major arterial roads in the area.
The Orange County Board of County Commissioners will vote on July 28th whether or not to approve these developments.
We need your help:
What can I do?: Send emails to the Orange County Commissioners and to the Seminole County Commissioners immediately.
The letters should state at minimum:
- That you are not in favor of crossing the Econ River or extending McCullough Road across the Econ River to Chuluota Road (CR 419)
- That the 2 projects known as Sustany (north of Lake Pickett Road) and GROW (south of lake Pickett Road) should be allowed to stand alone and apart for any approval by the Board of County Commissioners in Orange County.
- The Seminole County Rural Boundary in Chuluota will be substantially impacted by Sustany if the project is approved with any density in excess of 1 home to 3 acres on the northern and eastern portion of the Rybolt ranch.
