Orange County Mayor

Mayor Demings' Seal

Welcome to the homepage for Orange County, Florida. We invite you to explore our webpages for historical information, job opportunities, and other information about services offered by our local county government. I am elated for the opportunity to continue my public service as Orange County Mayor after serving as the elected Sheriff for a decade. I look forward to what we can achieve together. On August 28, 2018, I was elected as the fifth Mayor and was sworn in on December 4, 2018. The future holds great opportunities for us to build on Orange County’s thriving and robust economy. My primary focus will be on smart growth, sustaining livable neighborhoods, public safety, business development, education and forming partnerships with a regional emphasis.

Orange County is home to nearly 1.4 million residents and is the nation’s top leisure and travel destination with over 72 million tourist visits in 2017. We have the best theme parks in the world, such as Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios Orlando. We are home to the NBA professional basketball team, the Orlando Magic and the MLS professional soccer team, the Orlando City Soccer. We host numerous other sporting events, such as college bowl games and the NFL Pro Bowl.

Orange County was ranked as the fastest growing metropolitan area in the United States in 2017, and is a technology-rich region. From its early roots in aviation, aerospace and military defense products, it has new tech clusters, such as modeling, simulation and training, electrooptics and lasers, digital media, interactive entertainment, microelectronics, life sciences and healthcare and medical technologies. Nearly 99,000 building structure permits were issued in 2018, which has created a boom in construction activities. The demand for professional, skilled and service workers will continue, as well as the need for public private partnerships with higher-education institutions, technical training institutes and companies. Our goal is to build an entrepreneurial ecosystem that is sustainable for well into the future.

You will be able to explore our website and read about plans for environmental sustainability, water conservation, green space acquisition, economic development, social services, expansion of the transportation infrastructure and entrepreneurialism.

I encourage you to check back often for updates.
