OPINION: PROPOSED APOPKA-VINELAND AND 535 CONNECTOR WOULD RELIEVE TRAFFIC

By MARSHALL SWANSON

Windermere, FL - Anyone who is driven down Apopka Vineland Road near Disney realizations the need for a relief to the gesture. But how many realizations such a proposal was put forward just a number of years ago, at least in formally by a former local mayor. 
    Mayor Gary Bruhn says he spoke to officials at the county level about the need for a bypass project between County Road 535 and Apopka Vineland Road crossing over unused swampland. 
     However, he was told that this project would not be feasible because it benefited Windermere and not the community at large. Bruhn argues that the project would be a boon for everyone and less in traffic problems for those living in both Dr. Phillips and Windermere. 
    The road would begin at the grand cypress resort and extend through to Darrell Carter parkways end point near Fenton.  bruhn states that he is not advocating for the development of the surrounding swampland but does believe the plan is necessary for a single road to improve conditions for all residents in the area. 
   Wildlife activists argue that a disruption of the swamp would impact the ecosystems of the area. We feel that that enough green space would be preserved in the plan to fend off allegations of environmental disturbance. 
    It is our hope that mayor Demings considers the project as a potential contendor for county funds in the future. This endeavor doesn't just provide benefits for one area of town but helps alieviate  traffic concerns for all parties involved.
