This study — looking at Corrine Drive from US 17/92 to Bennett Road — will use MetroPlan Orlando’s draft Complete Streets policy to showcase how Complete Streets techniques can shape a corridor.
MetroPlan Orlando is leading the Corrine Drive Complete Streets study in coordination with Orange County, City of Orlando, and City of Winter Park. Corrine Drive is owned by Orange County, maintained by the City of Orlando, and adjacent to the City of Winter Park. With multiple jurisdictions and outside stakeholders involved, the corridor offers an excellent opportunity for MetroPlan Orlando to lead an independent evaluation and creation of a vision.
Community participation for the Corrine Drive Complete Streets study is guided by a Public Involvement Plan. This plan outlines how the public can be involved in each of the three stages of the study — from information gathering to solution evaluation, and then to study recommendations. In addition to an overview of the project and a comprehensive list of stakeholders, the Public Involvement Plan lays out the objectives and strategies for getting public input. There will be opportunities for public comment throughout the 12- to 18-month study. First, we want your thoughts on our plan for involving as many people as possible.
Please take a look at the draft Public Involvement Plan below, and send comments to Public Information Manager Cynthia Lambert by 5 p.m. Friday, March 3:
Written comments on the Public Involvement Plan may be submitted by email to CLambert@MetroPlanOrlando.org or mailed to Cynthia Lambert, Public Information Manager MetroPlan Orlando, 250 S. Orange Ave., Suite 200, Orlando, FL 32801.

Phases of the study
The study will break down into three phases, and each will have its own technical and public involvement focus. These are discussed in more depth in the Public Involvement Plan:
We’ll be listening to the community’s desires and using this input to help shape the study’s approach. At the same time, we’ll be gathering technical data on how the street is used. Findings of our technical analysis and a summary of public comments will be presented at a workshop at the end of this phase.
Transportation planners will show how different solutions could perform and engage the community in refining design options. The public will offer ideas and vote on what they like best. Design options and performance information will also be shared in small meetings throughout the corridor where participants offer feedback.
MetroPlan Orlando will present a draft Corrine Drive Corridor Plan and provide an opportunity for the public to provide input. The plan will then be presented to local governments for approval.
participants & objectives
In addition to residents and users of the corridor and surrounding neighborhoods, our team will work with a Regional Partners Group, which includes staff members from the jurisdictions with an interest in the corridor. We also will work with a stakeholders group, called the Project Visioning Team, made up of members of the public and private organizations with an interest in the corridor. View the Corrine Drive Project Visioning Team roster here.
Elected officials from Orange County, the City of Orlando and the City of Winter Park will be advised of progress on the study, as will MetroPlan Orlando Board and Committee members.
The study is expected to wrap up in the Spring of 2018 and seeks to:
• Enhance connectivity and accessibility
• Create a safe and supportive environment for walking and cycling
• Close gaps in regional bicycle infrastructure
• Identify strategies for improved transit service
• Create a vision and plan to enhance the corridor without impacting residential neighborhoods
