Save Old Ortega
Hello neighbors. This petition is in opposition to an application filed for Administrative Deviation (AD) and Waiver of Minimum Required Road Frontage (WRF) at 2841 Doric, Ave., Jacksonville, FL 32210.
Application Number: AD-20-72; Ordinance: 2020-726
Application Number: WRF-2020-28; Ordinance Number: 2020-725
This application will be heard by the Land Use and Zoning Committee (LUZ) on February 2nd, 2021. Over 108 neighbors from Ortega fought in opposition to these variances and splitting of the lot in 2019 in which the LUZ members allowed the owner of 2841 Doric Ave to ‘Withdraw’ their application after the owner of 3951 Baltic Ave was ‘Denied’ similar variances by a 6-0 vote (see Land Use & Zoning Committee minutes 2019-17, 2019-18, 2019-82, 2019-83 from the March 20th, 2019). The owner is claiming extreme financial difficulties if she is not allowed to split the lot. She is being dishonest with neighbors about her plans in order to sway them in her support. We strongly oppose these variances and ask that the City Council and LUZ committee deny these applications as we feel this will destroy the beauty of the Ortega neighborhood and set a precedent for others looking to take advantage and profit from our small community.
Please phone or email the LUZ Committee & Randy DeFoor, Councilwoman for Ortega, to voice your opposition. You may contact Randy DeFoor’s office at (904) 255-5214 or email her at RDeFoor@coj.net.
Please join us in person to speak against this application at the LUZ Committee hearing on Tuesday, Feb. 2nd @ 5PM. You may also attend & speak via Zoom. Physical Location: Council Chambers
117 W. Duval Street
Jacksonville, Florida 32202

Thank you Ortega neighbors for your opposition to these variances & splitting of lots to keep Ortega beautiful.
