In Orange County, Florida A Vote to Protect Split Oak Forest from a Toll Road

Orange County voters overwhelmingly have approved a charter amendment aimed at protecting Split Oak Forest from a new toll road. 

By a margin of 86 percent, voters endorsed the amendment on behalf of the forest in southeast Orange County and east Osceola County.

The amendment comes after Orange County commissioners voted in December 2019 to support a plan for the 9-mile toll road through part of the forest.
