Thinking of purchasing a home at the Sullivan Ranch Villas in Mount Dora located 21935 Sullivan Ranch Blvd, Mt. Dora, FL 32757
(I live in Staten Island, NY.) If you know this area well could you please let me know if a dump is causing air problems for persons living in this development? A post regarding this concern was listed at various web sites. Most other information I can glean from the web indicates that this is a very nice place to live. Thanks!

You should check to see if the mushroom plant uses formaldehyde to clean equipment and diazannone or malathion to keep down the bug population. Those chemicals can be dangerous if not used properly.

The landfill right behind the property is a construction and demolition landfill and is supposedly responsible for some of the bad odors that seep into homes overnight. Apparently there are also health concerns associated with these kinds of landfills.

Interesting article here...

Mushroom farms have to turn their compost piles to manage soil moisture, etc. This is a VERY stinky process that can be stinkier depending on the composition of the compost materials. Mushroom farms often will do this process following rains; I think some are familiar with the "stink" problem so they may turn the compost at night to mask the problem somewhat. I've heard investors refer to such horrid stenches as "the smell of jobs".

Things don't stink for no reason, btw. If something stinks then it is pollution. Period. You might want to check air quality for mold spores that are associated with farming generally, particularly mushroom farms (and regular farms that use chicken litter as fertilizer).

I'm a City Attorney in a small town in Oklahoma and I live a half-mile from a Mushroom farm. The nighttime odors can be nauseating.

Default any new news on sullivan ranch?

My husband and I are planning a fall move 2012 to Sullivan Ranch. We plan to have the Pinesprings garden home built. Any new updates on the status of Sullivan Ranch. Are current homeowners satified how things are progressing? Also, any info on a contractor that you were happy with that can enclose the back patio...probably either with vinyl, possibly glass, enclosure. Any feedback is appreciated. We've visited about 4 times and have been pleased with what we have seen. Thanks for you viewpoints!

There is an pet cremation facility next to the mushroom plant ( Jancy Pet Servces). If they don't have their settings high enough, there is a smell in the air. I usually notice this on weekends when Orange county offices are closed. They have been reported in the past.

You won't have much of an issue IN Sullivan Ranch per say, but you certainly will be exposed to off-putting aromas in the nearby vicinity, from the mushroom plant to the pet crematory to the **** plant on Jones to agricultural waste... Although I do think you'll get used to it.
