Final Week for Community to Participate in Vision 2050 Town Hall Meetings
Next Meeting Set for TONIGHT Monday, July 17 at 6:45 p.m. at Barnett Park
Orange County Government wants to hear from residents! Please join the conversation about the future of our community. Vision 2050, Orange County’s comprehensive plan, will guide our next phase of growth. The plan strives to protect natural resources and habitats, respect the diversity and character of established communities, increase transportation choices, encourage housing that meets the needs of every family, and connect vibrant places.
Town hall meetings are taking place throughout the county so residents can learn about the principles of Vison 2050, as well as how to share their thoughts using online tools and resources.
Each town hall meeting is tailored to its region and community and will consist of brief staff presentations, question and answer sessions and panel discussions.

Orange County is in one of the fastest growing regions in the United States. The Bureau of Economic & Business Research (BEBR) of the University of Florida estimates that by 2050, our population will increase by 700,000 people, with a total population expected to exceed 2.1 million. To prepare for this future in a smart and responsible way, Orange County has created Vision 2050 – an initiative that will guide us towards responsible growth and greater resilience.
The Vision 2050 Comprehensive Plan focuses on environmental preservation, community character and public spaces. Residents will have a chance to shape the County’s vision by reviewing the plan and providing feedback through a new interactive mapping website, which can be accessed at www.bit.ly/v2050web.
