Get hands-on, make your neighborhood a better place

Workshops offer a well-rounded blend of topics for individual citizens, voluntary neighborhood organizations, homeowners associations and other community groups. This year the conference will be virtual.

Workshop Topics

Sustainability Update
The vision for Orange County to be a leader on sustainability and community resilience. Innovative practices at the local level will not only strengthen our communities’ livability, economic development, and neighborhood relations, they will have real impact on the resilience of the region as a whole. Participants will learn about the County’s efforts to incorporate visible and equitable environmental policies into our government, development, and especially into our neighborhoods.

A Chat with Mayor Demings
Mayor Jerry L. Demings is finishing his third full year as Mayor of Orange County and continues to be committed to ensuring Orange County provides a quality of life that works for everyone. His commitment drives the initiatives he is implementing, including housing for all, transportation funding, economic development, and increased public safety. This interactive workshop provides the perfect setting to dialogue directly with Mayor Demings about the future and the groundwork being laid to make Orange County the “Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow” by creating a community culture of innovation, collaboration, and inclusiveness.
