PEOple of Lockhart

A 56-bed residential drug treatment center has been proposed for Forest City Road in Lockhart.  Read our Q&A HERE. Read our memo HERE requesting conditions on approval if the facility is found eligible to be located on that property.

UPDATE 5/13:  The applicant has submitted a new application, which will be heard by the Board of Zoning Adjustment on July 7.

UPDATE 4/7: The applicant has withdrawn their proposal for now, but could resubmit. The process would start over at that point.

UPDATE 3/7: Orange County will hold a community meeting to discuss the project on Thursday, March 17 at 6:00 pm at Riverside Baptist Church on Forest City Road. The flyer is HERE.

UPDATE 2/17: Orange County has agreed (see HERE) that the property's zoning does not allow for a residential treatment center. B

Read our January 2016 memo to the Orange County Zoning Division HERE.

We asked questions about the project, but have not taken a formal position on the project. Our concern is that the same rules apply to Lockhart as everywhere else in Orange County.

The location of the proposed treatment facility is HERE. More info is HERE .

Current Alerts and Announcements

Lockhart has more than 13,000 residents in 4.6 square miles, but only 8.1 acres of

public park space.

Read People of Lockhart Community Association Resolution 15-1:

Regarding the Need for Additional

Park Space in Lockhart

On one hand, Lockhart is one of Orange County's oldest suburban areas. On the other hand, Lockhart has experienced significant growth in recent years. Some of the resources that a community of our size needs and that newer communities take for granted are not available in Lockhart. We aim to change that.

Lockhart is not immune from the challenges facing most areas of Central Florida. More than 25,000 cars a day pass through the intersection of Orange Blossom Trail & Rose Avenue alone. Lockhart has had more than its share of crime and other urban problems in recent years. We aim to change that.

About 3,500 families in two dozen neighborhoods live in Lockhart, but many don't identify Lockhart as home or consider Lockhart residents or businesses to be their neighbors. We aim to change that.
