Seminole County has announced a hybrid public meeting for Deer Run community residents to be held on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 at 6:30pm.
The meeting will be held in person for a small number of people who are able to reserve tickets (they are available for free on a first come, first serve basis via Eventbrite). The in-person venue is MetroLife Church (910 S Winter Park Dr, Casselberry, FL 32707 ).
Covid-19 safety protocols for in-person attendance are as follows:
1. No one will be allowed entry without a mask.
2. Hand sanitizers will be available throughout the venue.
3. Tickets will be required to enter.
4. Seating capacity is limited to approximately 25%.
5. Seating in the venue will be socially distanced.
Other people who cannot/do not wish to attend in person would be able to view the meeting via Zoom. Participation is free but registration is required.
This meeting is the BIG ONE for Deer Run. The county is measuring resident participation as a gauge of public support for the county to purchase the former golf course, design a public park with desired community recreational activities, and design an MSBU (a type of special, voluntary taxing district to help offset cost of amenity improvements). If 50 people show up and participate either in person or virtually, the county will take that to mean there has been a small, vocal minority in the subdivision shouting more loudly than most residents support. If 500-800 people show up, then the county staff will take that as a sign there is both interest and support for continuing the MSBU process. We cannot stress this enough. Now is the time for Deer Run to put its proverbial money where its mouth is.
