In 2018, Central Florida was ranked first in the nation for job growth, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Additionally, Forbes magazine ranked the metro Orlando region No. 1 to invest in a home with an estimated 84,000 building permits issued in Orange County valued at $2.3 billion. Orange County also earned the highest AAA credit rating from Moody's Investors Service, recognizing its fiscal reliability and continued quality-of-life enhancements.
Through outreach and engagement opportunities, we will create communities with more actively involved residents, improved employment opportunities, higher participation in government and increased volunteerism.
We want to inspire our citizens to collaborate with local governments and businesses and work together for the long-term
prosperity and livability of their communities.
Enter your neighborhood/HOA in the challenge and tell us about the green, healthy and involved practices in your community. It begins each year in March and continues through June. Awards are presented at the Orange County Community Conference in July.
Each year, Orange County encourages citizens to enroll in a program called “Orange County Experience”. In a 12-week series of classes you will meet staff, take tours, visit advisory boards and see your County in action. It’s a great stepping stone to finding your place in County government and using your skills to help the County shine! Visit Orange County Experience to see when the next class series begins.
Visit OCFL Serves to view the many volunteer opportunities around the County. Watch the video to see one way you can make a difference in the Environmental Volunteer and Internship Program (eVIP).
Each year around the holidays, residents are encouraged to show their appreciation to the firefighters in their community by providing meals and volunteering their time at local fire stations. Consider helping your fire station any time of the year.
