Lake Eola Heights Historic Neighborhood Association


YOUR Neighborhood Association

The Lake Eola Heights Historic Neighborhood Association, (LEHHNA), was formed in the mid 1980's by a group of residents who wanted to rescue homes from demolition and preserve the original residential character of the area. 

In the 80's, private restoration of buildings had already begun and the "turn around" was under way. The City designated the neighborhood as The Lake Eola Heights Historic District in 1989. With input from the residents, this ordinance was instrumental in identifying and protecting the homes and buildings. The City and State provided and continues to offer several programs and incentives to encourage preservation and restoration of homes and buildings, (ad valorum tax deferral). In 1991, Lake Eola Heights became the first residential historic district in Orlando to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The neighborhood was also the recipient of the 1998 Florida Trust Neighborhood Award. 

LEHHNA continues to be pro-active in the support of preservation and compatible new development. In addition, LEHHNA works aggressively with The City on traffic abatement and was the first Orlando neighborhood to install roundabouts.

Our board consists of 5 officers, 7 board members and 3 alternates, elected annually. We also have several committees to oversee projects. They include, Traffic Committee, Garden Tour Committee, Garden of the Month Committee, Block Party Committee, Holiday Decorating Committee and the Holiday Decorations Contest Committee. All are voluntary and all interested energetic people are welcomed! 

You can ask City Commissioner Patty Sheehan, 'one of the most effective ways to have The City hear your voice is through your neighborhood association'. Invest in your home, join your neighborhood association.
