Overview

In 1995 Orange County approved the framework for the Horizon West sector plan, a development model based on a collection of villages. Each village is designed to be a self-contained community, promoting connectivity between land uses and pedestrian environments. The Horizon West plan is currently planned with five (5) villages and a Town Center. Furthermore, to promote the goals of mixed land use and multimodal connectivity Orange County in 1997 adopted the Adequate Public Facilities (APF) Ordinance, which specifies the need for such connectivity measures as roadway networks, storm water management, utilities, etc.

Project Description

Orange County has initiated a Preliminary Design Study for the proposed road widening and realignment improvements to Avalon Road (C.R. 545)-Village H. The study limits begin approximately 1,300 feet south of the intersection with the south leg of the proposed Loop Road (Existing two-lane section). The end of the study is approximately 1,300 feet north of the intersection with Schofield Road. Avalon Road is proposed as a four (4) lane divided roadway within a 120-foot right of way. The roadway segments included in this study comprise a major component of the critical roadway network required to support Orange County’s vision for the Horizon West Planning Area. The project is located in Orange County Commission District 1, Betsy VanderLey.
