The City of Winter Park, with assistance from GAI Consultants, Inc., will hold two public involvement meetings to discuss Denning Drive, its current conditions, and future possibilities. The first meeting, will be in a workshop format and held Thursday, May 12. The follow-up meeting, will be held Tuesday, June 7. Both meetings will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Rachel D. Murrah Civic Center located at 1050 W. Morse Blvd., and public input is encouraged.
On Thursday, May 12, the meeting will involve a “walking audit” of Denning Drive giving attendees the opportunity to experience Denning from a walker’s point of view, including bike activity along the corridor as well as bus and vehicular movements along the road. After the walking tour, the participants will discuss the corridor’s capacity to accommodate all of these modes of transportation. Special attention will be given to the relationship between residential properties and businesses along the corridor.
At the second meeting, Tuesday, June 7, staff will summarize the May meeting discussions as well as present sketches and concepts based on the feedback from the first workshop. Attendees at this meeting will have the opportunity to discuss, and provide input and suggestions on the information presented.
As part of the Community Redevelopment Agency’s (CRA) five-year Capital Improvement Plan, Denning Drive is one of the first projects the CRA is re-evaluating for performance, needs and possible improvements. The Denning Drive corridor is being evaluated under the city’s Complete Streets Resolution and is funded by the CRA. The intent of this evaluation is to improve the experience of walkers, bikers, bus riders and cars without compromising the function and level of service of the road.
