Builder Will Check Orlando Neighborhood for BombsAugust 31, 2007
by Linda Hutchinson
If you’ve been following the news in Central Florida for the past month or so, you’ve heard about the unexploded bombs from World War II found in a pasture less than 1/2 mile from Odyssey Middle School in southeast Orange County. This article in the Orlando Sentinel indicates that residents of two nearby neighborhoods will have the ground under their streets, sidewalks, and yards scanned, and any unexploded ordinance disposed of, courtesy of Lennar Homes, who originally developed part of the 950-acre Vista Lakes community.
I’m glad to hear that Lennar is taking responsibility for fixing this problem particularly since they don’t really know how much it will cost to fix this problem. The residents of those neighborhoods deserve peace of mind, and this seems like the first step toward regaining it.
