Judge’s Ruling A Victory For Lake Pickett’s Residents “See Order”

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Administrative Law Judge Suzanne Van Wyk ruling gave Lake Pickett’s residents a victory against Orange County Friday.

The judge ruled that Lake Pickett South Development – also known as “The Grow” – is inconsistent with Rural Service Area development patterns.

Commissioner Emily Bonilla Statement

“I am very pleased with the results of the order. Finally, after over three years, the people’s voice has been heard,” Orange County District 5 Commissioner Emily Bonilla stated in a press release to Florida National News.

“Fighting the Lake Pickett developments is what prompted me to run for office and what I ran my campaign on,” Commissioner Bonilla expressed.  “Growth continues to encroach upon rural Orange County. It is more important than ever for County Commissioners to ensure that our environmentally sensitive, rural and agricultural areas are protected for future generations.  While we must maintain a delicate balance, I will continue to fight to preserve rural East Orange.  I will request that the Board of County Commissioners vote to support and solidify the judge’s order at the next BCC meeting.”
