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.
Orange County's $300 million initiative, INVEST in Our Home for Life, includes a series of projects across Orange County that will provide long-term benefits to our citizens. Announced during the 2015 State of the County Address, INVEST in Our Home for Life will provide Infrastructure, New public safety facilities, Vibrant neighborhoods and affordable family housing, Enhanced recreation opportunities, Safety improvements for pedestrians and Transportation connectivity throughout Orange County.
Thanks to conservative budgeting exercised by the Board of County Commissioners and an improving economy, Orange County will use existing resources to fund INVEST in Our Home for Life. This is made possible by leveraging improved sales tax collections from Orange County’s record-breaking tourism market, as well as increasing economic activity throughout the region. A combination of Orange County’s high credit rating, historically low interest rates and the rising cost of construction make this the best time to invest in long-term infrastructure and public safety needs.
INVEST in Our Home for Life is allocated as follows:
