Friends of Lake Jesup
East Branch (Oviedo) Seminole County Library
Chairman Robert King called the meeting to order.
Minutes were postponed until later in the meeting.
A brief report was given about the Lake Mary blvd extension/ SR415 meeting held at the airport. Scott Bear gave a report on the progress of the FDOT work being done by CH2Mhill on the SR46 bridge design. Discussion followed. Scott presented a handout on their latest work. Important facts presented were land cover maps and more detailed bridge proposals. It appears that early next year would be the earliest that any FDOT public involvement meetings might be held. Maps handed out are drafts but were not marked as such. The ACOE is still about one year out from their recommendations and Scott explained that the final decision by FDOT will include whatever plan ACOE brings forward.
The Lake Mary Blvd extention was discussed
Friends agreed to comment on LAKE JESSUP WOODS?
Ed Hayes gave an update on the Phragmity removal with the remaining funds for the Futch berm removal. Mr Hayes stated that the “cookie Cutter” would start at 46 bridge and go down the west shore toward Marl bed Flats and then go down the east shore until we run out of money. Also there is progess on the dredgeing project. Mr Hayes stated that the surveyors would be starting muck depth documentation and consultant will be out to start the muck analysis for contaminants. He expects to be able to give a substantial report at the next meeting.
Photos were circulated of the Futch Property management planning committee visit to the site. The meeting was described by Mr King and discussion was held regarding future progress on the site. The money from FDOT for management of the site is still intact, awaiting a complete management plan.
ED Hayes reported on a meeting with Seminole county regarding use of part of the site that has been identified by FWCC for spoil dewatering. Ed reported that the portion that the county wants to use for a stormwater system is in a corner of the property that he did not intend to use and that the county will be developing a more complete plan to present for consideration.The meeting was adjourned.
