Folks who attend Thursday’s Dr. Phillips Town Hall Meeting will have the chance to hear an overview of southwest Orange County’s transportation, development, parks and trails, schools and public safety.

The meeting is from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, July 7, at the Rosen JCC, 11184 S. Apopka-Vineland Road, Orlando.

“This Town Hall meeting is an ideal opportunity for the residents of Dr. Phillips to see a real-time snapshot of existing and proposed developments, infrastructure projects, public investments and other elements that positively impact their quality of life,” said S. Scott Boyd, Orange County commissioner for District 1.

He will open the meeting and facilitate a Q&A session at the close.

The gathering will include presentations from Orange County staff members, the Orange County Sheriff's Office and Orange County Public Schools.

For each topic, a representative from the respective divisions will give a presentation covering any current or pending projects in the Dr. Phillips area.

Discussion will center around the following: the Sand Lake Road RCA Study, several development projects in both the northern and southern Dr. Phillips area, new school sites and timelines, regional and community parks and trails and the services and community resources of both the OCSO and Orange County Fire Rescue.

“Recently listed as No. 26 of Money Magazine’s 50 Best Places to Live, Dr. Phillips boasts a superb quality of life,” Boyd said. “This is much in part due to the dedication of the area’s proactively engaged residents. Because this is such a desirable area, there is continual growth and development pressure.”

Residents with specific questions or topics they would like to have addressed can call the District 1 office at 407-836-7350.
