Mayor Jacobs Announces $300 Million Initiative at 2015 State of the County Address Photos by Orange County

INVEST in Our Home for Life will be funded through existing resources thanks to conservative budgeting and an improving economy, not through increased taxes.

“To build a vibrant economy where creativity, innovation and opportunity will flourish, we need to invest now in the infrastructure that future generations will need,” Mayor Jacobs said. “From efficient roads to a healthy environment, it’s our job and our responsibility to invest wisely.”

In The State of the County speech, Mayor Jacobs outlined robust industries that have helped Orange County largely overcome the serious economic concerns of eight years ago. A record-breaking 62 million visitors in 2014 confirms Orlando as a premier global destination, she said, thanking tourism and travel leaders and recognizing the impact of this vitally important economic sector, which supports one out of every three jobs.
