A developer looking to build restaurants and condos on the land where the Mt. Vernon Inn currently stands will hold a public meeting on Thursday, July 31, to gather input from the community – a telltale sign of the project pushing forward.

Unicorp National Developments Inc. will host an informational meeting at 6 p.m. today, July 31, at the Rachel D. Murrah Civic regarding the planned development.

Talks of Unicorp buying up the property of the 65-year-old hotel surfaced earlier this year.

Winter Park’s Planning and Community Development Director Dori Stone and Planning Director Jeff Briggs had recommended Unicorp get the community involved in the wake of the anti-density movement forming in Winter Park, said Unicorp president Chuck Whittall.

“We want their input,” Whittall said. “It makes things a lot easier.”
