Finding a solid direction for Fairbanks Avenue – Winter Park
Sometimes, Commissioner Steve Leary said, charting your future can be as simple as giving someone directions.
When institutions in Winter Park give people directions to get here courtesy of a highway exit that goes through Orlando – and not through Winter Park itself – that becomes very frustrating, Leary said.
“It’s embarrassing to me that when Rollins College is recruiting people, they tell them to get off at Princeton,” he said. “That is an awful call.”
The Princeton Street exit off Interstate 4 is one of the last Orlando exits before motorists drive into Winter Park. At a time when the city is trying to go more to expand its commercial base, Leary said, motorists should be directed to the Fairbanks Avenue exit off I-4 instead.
