Message from Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs
Since taking office in 2011, my priority has been to create a sustainable future of ever-growing economic prosperity and opportunity for all, built upon Orange County’s innovation-driven, forward-focused investments and our strategic investment in crucial quality-of-life infrastructure and services. In addition to the key community needs identified in my $300M “INVEST in Our Home for Life” initiative, our focus has included the creation of a diverse arts, sports and recreation environment, thriving natural resources, efficient roads and transit systems, and a broad array of public safety and family resources.
Through a combination of strong economic growth, responsible stewardship of taxpayer dollars and the valuable contributions of our business, faith, non-profit and education communities, Orange County has undergone transformational quality-of-life changes that will benefit the region for generations to come. Together with our regional partners and neighboring municipalities, we have built a strong, resilient, unified and prosperous world-class community for our residents, families and guests to enjoy.
I am inspired each and every day by the transformation that has resulted from our creativity and collaboration. By working together, we have created a strong and sustainable community. I am honored to present this overview of what we have achieved together and look forward to our continued efforts to grow our culture of collaboration, compassion and confidence.
Thank you for your support, and for working to make Orange County the best place to live, work and raise a family.
Teresa Jacobs, Orange County Mayor
