With the proposed construction to begin on Interstate 4 starting in late 2014 early 2015 the Historical Committee of the Neighborhood Association has invited Rick Foglesong, Ph.D., Professor of Political Science at Rollins College to talk about how Interstate 4 ended up going through College Park and across Lake Ivanhoe. Mr. Foglesong wrote a paper, Prologue to Light Rail: The Interstate-4 Controversy in Winter Park 1954-1961 reviewing the history of the original construction. Richard has also served on MetroPlan Orlando, and will give a perspective of what College Park can expect in the upcoming construction. Dr. Foglesong is also the author of Married to the Mouse – Walt Disney World and Orlando.
The Historical Committee meeting will be Monday January 27, at the College Park Community Center, 2393 Elizabeth Ave. for information contact email@example.com
