City of Winter Park
United States of America

"Oppidan Holdings, LLC is requesting a Conditional Use approval for a two-story, approximately 39,877-square-foot Orchard Supply Hardware store on the property located at 2530 Aloma Ave. (existing site of Aloma Bowl), which is zoned C-3."

Aloma Bowling Center, founded in 1977, is an important part of the Winter Park community. Tens of thousands visit their center each year. The sale of Aloma Bowl was recently announced in a Citywide Public Notice stating that there will be two meetings discussing this matter. The first one, involving the Planning & Zoning Board, will take place on March 7, 2017. The second will take place on March 27, 2017, and will be the City Commission.

In Article I, Section 5 of the Florida Constitution, it's stated that the people have the right to "petition for redress of grievances". As a community, if we have enough supporters, the sale of Aloma Bowling Center will not go through.

We, the residents of Winter Park and its surrounding towns, call on the City of Winter Park to stop the sale of Aloma Bowling Center by vetoing Oppidan Holdings, LLC's requests to build a two-story on that site. Aloma is a part of our community, and replacing it with Orchard Supply Hardware Store will not only remove a popular entertainment center from our city, but it will affect the lives of thousands who call Aloma Bowl a home away from home.
