Updating: New dates set for New Errol project hearings


Updating Breaking News from last week:

Planning Commission and City Council meetings scheduled for March/April

Development plans for the proposed New Errol project will be reviewed at a special Apopka Planning Commission meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, at the Apopka Community Center, 519 S. Central Ave. Special City Council meetings are scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 27, and 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 11, at the Apopka Community Center.

Last week the City of Apopka canceled the meetings scheduled for February 20th (Planning Commission) and February 27th (City Council).

Signature H Property Group, the developers of the New Errol project, presented their massive undertaking to the Apopka City Council in August of 2017. The project, which would completely transform Errol Estate, includes:

A redesigned championship golf course

A 15,000 square foot clubhouse with restaurant

A boutique lodge hotel

A two-acre water park

Outdoor parks and trails

264 new residences

A resort-like Adult Living Facility

It was also learned in the August meeting that the project would cost $150-million to construct in total and that the 10-year projection for the project is expected to net $121 million.

The City Council voted 4-1 to approve the Ordinance (2581) on first reading, which moved the project to a state review. In December, the state approved the project, which brought the project back to the City of Apopka for final approval.
