Another Stivender. With Jim and Debbie working for developers C.R. 455 is doomed.

Wow, this astounds me! Lake Co. actually has PLANNERS?

Also another note, its all sentimental to preserve this road and make it accessable to biking and whatnot, but why didn't it ever become a big deal to preserve Sugarloaf Mountain, peninsular FL's highest natural "peak"??

Oh, I forgot, because it PAYS more to turn it into a golf community that is unaffordable (unattainable?) to buy and live at.

I think the County needs to focus on paving all the clay road that currently exist in Lake County instead of planning other road projects

I agree with the comment regarding the extended school zone and the cat walk concept. The Montverde Academy is fully funded by the rich parents that send their kids to this school. However in regards to a bike lane, this is good news. Not sure if you were aware but USA Triathlon brings alot of athletes to Clermont and this would make many of the drivers quite happy. As there is not enough room on 455 for these cyclist and the carsor a cat walk. The paths would need to extend to the county line (455 and West Orange)

Montverde pays taxes like the rest of you. Easy on the mayor, he is doing a great job improving the roads all around the town. No mayor can do everything that everyone wants. It takes time and respect to get what you want. This hate for the town and the academy is very said. I will pray for you and hope that you seek out a church so the lord can help you. It is amazing that they are doing anything at all so we need to stop picking the process apart and add positive input. It is easy to sit behind your computer and type hate, but let the lord guide you in all that you do.

First of all No! to the bikes. I can't stand it when they are not respectful to the automobile. They take up the entire road. Go somewhere else or use the bike trail that was PAID by my TAXES for your sorry aces to use. Get OFF the road that is for MOTORIZED Vehicles. The Bike trail states NO MOTORIZED VEHICLES why I should drive on it since the bikes won't

Amen to that...why do these "athletes" get a free pass to block our roads daily ? Why not practice your golf swing in the middle of C.R. 455 as golfers are athletes too right ? Tight shorts , a helmet and dreams of being an olympian somehow give these people the rights to block our roads "we locals" pay taxes on every day ?
