Storm Recovery Update:

Storm Debris collection is ongoing throughout the City and will continue diligently until the job is completed.   Please continue to place your bagged, bundled or containerized debris curbside for Waste Pro pickup, and other storm debris curbside as well for our Emergency Debris Contractors to collect.  Please be advised Waste Pro was unable to complete their regular year waste route yesterday, but is out this morning to finish their route.

We sincerely thank you for your continued patience and understanding during this process.  We are making significant progress (having collected over 1,000,000 cubic feet of debris) and hope to finish the initial phase through the entire City by this weekend.  Crews will then perform an additional pass to collect any additional storm debris.

Please contact Public Works at 407-327-7576 if you have questions in the above matters.

Lastly, all permits and related fees for removal and trimming of trees, and removal and repair of fences due to damage caused by Hurricane Irma remain temporarily waived, until further notice.  If you have any questions in this matter, please contact the Community Development Department at 407-327-5963.  Click here for more information.

Parks and Recreation Update

Two more parks are open!

Ranchlands Park & Bear Creek Nature Trail are now open.

Central Winds Park back playground, back pier, restrooms & pavilions will remain closed. The contractors are actively working in these areas. We hope to reopen these areas in a few weeks. Oak Hollow still has a leaning tree and will remain closed.

All remaining Parks & Recreation facilities are open for normal sports leagues, activities and classes. We will continue to work hard to open all areas of our parks when they are safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
