Polk County Commission approves new Creek Ranch Development on Lake Hatchineha Road
This project will consist of new development on hundreds of acres privately owned on Lake Hatchineha Road in Poinciana. It will include new homes, desperately needed commercial, land offered to the copunty for a new Poinciana High School plus 650 acres of forever preservation area between Lake Hatchineha and the rest of Poinciana.
On July 25,2023 Poinciana Area Council ( PAC ) hosted a community meeting where Central Florida Expressway Authority ( CFX) and Osceola County presented the latest status of local Poinciana Road Projects and in particular the Southport Connector project.
There was an article published that same day by the Osceola News Gazette describing the meeting.
The meeting consited of presentations by both CFX and Osceola County. At the end of the presentations there was a question and answer session.
To sum up the situation the presenters at the meeting showed that the current Southport Connector PD&E study that was started in 2020 is proceeding and nearing completion. The purpose of the study is to build a toll road to connect the south end of the Poinciana Parkway to the Florida Turnpike and St. Cloud.
Multiple allignments south of lake Toho are being evaluated. The only alignment connecting Poinciana Parkway to Pleasant Hill that is being considered is to use the 300 foot right of way on Cypress Parkway. All other possible alignments including using as an alternate KOA or building and entirely new road crossing Reedy Creek or Disney Wilderness Preserve south of Cypress Parkway have been rejected.
CFX is still looking at possible options for building the elevated road along Cypress Parkway. Some of those options were described at the meeting.
