Horizon West residents will be able to attend a free safety event from 6 to 7:15 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 23, at the Summerport Clubhouse, 14422 Bluebird Park Road, Windermere. 

According to David Terry, Legacy Events for Education president and executive director, the idea of the event emerged from the ongoing concerns residents have in regards to safety measures. 

"Jeff (Loeffert) was really the person behind the effort," Terry said. "We wanted to get the police department out here to give us an overview of what the current situation is." 

The event will feature Captain Dennis Ela from the Orange County Sheriff's Office. 

Some of the topics to be discussed at the event include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Orange County Sheriff's Office rezoning update. 
  • Horizon West population growth.
  • School safety.
  • Transportation safety.
  • Golf cart requirements.
  • Citizens On Patrol Program. 

All residents from the Horizon West area are welcome to attend. Early birds will be able to enjoy a slice of pizza from Marco's Pizza.

Doors open at 5:45 p.m.
