Proven Conservative Leadership.
ABOUT: KEN SPALTHOFF…
Born in Redbank, New Jersey in 1972. I moved to Winter Springs in the summer of 2008 with my family and I presently reside in the Winding Hollow Neighborhood. My wife and I have been married for 18 years and we have three daughters. I moved to Winter Springs in 2008 because I found that the city had a calm and clean environment and felt that this would be a great place to raise a family.
Over the last five years I’ve noticed most of the land in Winter Springs is being developed for apartments and new homes at a pace that our roads and schools simply cannot keep up with. In the last three years over 1000+ apartments have either been built, are being built, or are approved to be built in the next 24 months to come. Over 400 single family homes are also approved and being built. These approved projects will statistically add over 3000 additional vehicles daily to the main thoroughfare of the Winter Springs Town Center area. Traffic and the overcrowding of student classrooms within Winter Springs schools is now a certain outcome from all of these city government approvals. The city of Winter Springs is quickly becoming densely populated, heavy with traffic, and is turning into something I didn’t want at all when I moved my family here ten years ago. In speaking with many WS residents I have found that most people are as unhappy as I am with the over-development happening within Winter Springs.
As your Mayor I would fight to keep future growth to a minimum and only approve new projects when the city genuinely necessitates a need for it and if the land is already zoned for that function. We need “Smart Growth” for the future of Winter Springs!
