The shifting historical status of the Capen House resulted in a public outcry, and now resi dents and the City Commission are questioning the effectiveness of the system thats designed to keep the citys historical build ings safe. Its a wakeup call, Com missioner Sarah Sprinkel I dont think anybody would have predicted it, but now its here; youve got to do something with it and you cant ignore it. The City Commission dis historical preservation and the differences and similarities be tween a national historic register and a local one; many historic Winter Park buildings fall under one or the other. Residents whove rallied to gether to try and save the Capen House since word got out last month over its possible destruc tion continue to question the city processes that brought them to this place. If land looks like a park, acts as a park, and is perceived to be a park by the public, then it should be protected as a park, ruled the majority of Maitlands City Council on Monday by moving to add two more perceived parks to the citys register of protected heritage lands. in the citys charter a citizenpetition-prompted amendment in 1990 requires all aesthetically pleasing land perceived as a park land, which can then only be changed in use by voter referen dum.

Rick Scott last month. The new bill will go into effect in November, and gives Florida ting additional days, hours and locations for early voting, trim ming down the crowds on Elec tion Day. We have to remember that a lot of people being interested in an election and voting is a good thing, said Seminole County Su pervisor of Elections Michael Er tel. Whats not good is not being able to accommodate them, and so thats what I think this will ibility. Counties are now able to add required eight days of early vot ing, and the minimum amount of time an early voting station is hours to eight hours. The bill means more locations for early voting as well. Florida residents will be able to vote ear ly at community buildings, civic centers and stadiums, Ertel said. Orange County Elections Su pervisor Bill Cowles said the im portance of early voting comes from getting people in and out of We have to meet the needs of the voters, Cowles said. They want convenience in their voting; they want options in their voting, so thats why I think were seeing the emphasis on these laws for early voting. The current bill undid many of the changes that were made in 2011, which cut back on early voting by decreasing the number of voting days from 14 to eight and outlawing early voting on Sunday. Both were seen widely as politically motivated. Floridas early voting during again over the past several years. In 2008, Florida was given 14 days of early voting. In 2012, that number dropped to 10 days, and have 14 days once again. Cowles suggested that poli tics usually plays a part in these changes. Many times politics will get involved in determining the de cisions that are made concerning Please see ELECTIONS on page 2 Supervisors react to law changes at the polls but more ways for money to influence elections TIM FREED Observer Staff

Were just asking you to pre serve and cherish what we have in the parks system, PRAB Chair Cindi Price said. While Councilman John Lowndes proposed changing the tion off the bat, Councilman Ivan Valdes suggested the city recon sider the Hill Recreation Centers distinction. He and Mayor How ard Schieferdecker proposed that the city, while it still had discre tion over the lands use, look into possibly selling or swapping the Center property for land on the west side of Maitland to make a park over there instead. We need to come up with a plan to get a west side park we have a number of parks on the east side, and not one on the west side, Schieferdecker said. It takes money, thats the key. That money, he said, has been something the city hasnt had to fund the purchase of land for a park in western Maitland, and something the leverage of this land on Hillcrest could help with. But residents urged the Coun cil to respect their wishes, refer ring back to the 1990 heritage lands amendment, which passed with 90.6 percent of the vote. The whole reason for that charter amendment was because they wanted to prevent the very thing you may be considering now, selling the land, outgoing PRAB member Pushpa Seth said. Theyre not making anymore maintain what we have, said longtime PRAB member Eliza beth Schneider-Peele. Councilmembers Lowndes, Frosch and Goff-Marcil agreed, directing staff to draft paperwork to add the two parks to citys list of protected heritage lands. We all want [a west side park] done, but I dont think were go ing to get that way from losing park on the east side, Lowndes said. The Council, he added, needs to respect what the charter amendment asked for, and call a park a park. the legislation, so I think in the case of 2011, there was an attempt to make some things happen for the 2012 election, and I think they saw that they were not wise de cisions and then they reversed themselves, Cowles said. Florida House Rep. Karen Cas tor Dentel said she agreed that the probably be tied to politics. I do think that its a politi cal strategy for some to limit the number of people who vote, Castor Dentel said. If youre go ing to limit Sunday early voting, which is a traditional day of vot ing for African Americans, who traditionally vote Democrat, that sounds like a political strategy to me. Hopefully well rise above that. One of the more controversial items on the bill is one that raises the amount of money a voter can contribute to a candidate from $500 to $1,000. It ends up making people who cant give that money have less of a voice, Castor Dentel said. Not that the limits themselves are ob scene, but it minimizes people who dont have access to that kind of money to participate. Castor Dentel said a certain Su preme Court ruling made way for in politics. The Citizens United ruling that recognized corporations as people kind of opened the doors to corporations having an undue Dentel said. I disagree with that court ruling. We should represent the people, not necessarily cor porations. Were representing the people who vote for us, the peo ple in our districts. Money is a problem in these races. Though the new bill has its set backs, it generally addresses the issues that needed to be changed from 2011, Ertel said. Its not a perfect bill, but over all, I think were moving in the right direction, Ertel said. With all due respect, I feel that the events in recent weeks have caused our community to lose faith in our governments ability to protect our historic resources, said Betsy Owens, a Winter Park of Casa Feliz. Looking back a little further over the last 20 years, one in every eight homes in Winter Park has been de molished. While some res idents argued that the city is unable to protect its his toric landmarks, Mayor Ken Brad ley wasnt as quick to say the sys tem is broken. I dont agree with the assess ment that historical preservation is dead in this city, Bradley said. Im not coming from the assump tion that everything is broken and know if it is or isnt. We need to look at it in a much more realistic way. Bradley suggested looking at other communities like Gaines ville, Coral Gables and Sarasota for guidance on historic preserva tion. I think thats really important for us to say who are the organiza tions or cities that have done this re ally well and what kind of efforts that they embrace in the community to get it done, Brad ley said. During this Commission meeting, Capen House home owners John and Betsy Pokorny were represented by attorney Trippe Cheek who told the Commission that his cli ents would be willing to relocate the home as long as it was a rea sonable offer within a reasonable amount of time. The owners are currently speaking with private companies about relocating the building, with one anonymous company submitting a relocation method this past week, Assistant City Manager Michelle del Valle said. Meanwhile, the City Commis sion will continue to work to take a closer look at the citys methods of historical preservation. I think this will be on our agendas for many times to come, Bradley said.
