Attention Celebration Residents,
This is an Eastlawn sidewalk update from the Celebration Community Development District:
After Hurricane Ian, this sidewalk was washed out and required complicated repairs due to the extent of the damage, cost of repairs, the location with limited access, and the surrounding conservation areas owned by Reedy Creek Improvement District. Unfortunately, interim solutions were not viable due to safety concerns, and addressing consideration of the surrounding pond and conservation easements. The Board sought multiple bids to ensure cost competition. The District staff also coordinated closely with RCID, and other stakeholders to ensure that the plan for protecting the conservation area was developed, and in accordance with the law. In the December meeting, the Board reviewed and approved a contract for repairs. That contract has been negotiated and awarded.
Starting today, January 23, 2023, the construction on the Eastlawn sidewalk will begin. ALL of Eastlawn Boardwalk will be closed due to this repair until further notice. We will be sure to keep the residents updated regarding any changes that may be made.
We appreciate the community’s patience and look forward to having this restored for the community’s safe use.
Thank you from the Celebration Community Development District
