Notification of Demolition Operations for UXO Disposal
set for Thursday 11am – 05/25/2017.
Since 2007, there has been a temporary moratorium on permitting and construction in effect for properties in the southeast Orlando area that were utilized for military training and demonstration operations during World War II.
The property owners and area residents have been waiting since that time for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct a comprehensive cleanup of the site and eliminate the lingering public safety threat.
The owner of the property known as the Vista Park parcel has now secured permission from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) to take on the responsibility of clearing this land of any munitions that may have been left from the time the U.S. Army used the site as the Pinecastle Jeep Range.
FDEP has approved a detailed plan for the clearance process.
