Volume 10/ May 18, 2018
A Message from Jim Gray
Orlando City Commissioner
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, District 1 City Commissioner Jim Gray and Police Chief John Mina invite the community to Orlando Speaks.
This is the sixth interactive workshop designed to strengthen relationships and trust between officers and residents. Building on the national dialogue, the Valencia College Peace and Justice Institute, in partnership with the City of Orlando, will conduct this workshop to continue the dialogue to enhance our community policing initiative. The City of Orlando is committed to ensuring that we remain inclusive and accepting of all because the strength of our community is our diversity.

Seating is limited.  RSVP to this invite or call the City of Orlando’s Office of Community Affairs and Human Relations at 407.246.2500 to reserve your space. Registration is open until the workshop is filled.
Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM 

Learn about the most recent changes to the Florida Statutes that regulate condominium and mandatory homeowners and property associations. The attorneys will answer general legal questions regarding mandatory association governance, grievances or appeals processes, official organization records requirements, association/member disputes, reserve funding requirements, how to legally deal with foreclosures, association rules, and more.

All workshops will be held at Beardall Senior Center, 800 South Delaney Avenue, Orlando, FL 32801, unless stated otherwise.
Free Trees for Orlando Residents

Did you know that if every resident planted a tree in the City of Orlando, our tree canopy would increase from 25 percent to 40 percent? That’s like taking nearly 40,000 cars off the road.
This program is available to residents who live within the city limits of Orlando. If you are unsure if you qualify, please check your address at this website:  Orlando Information Locator

We have an exciting new list of trees to choose from: 
Chicksaw Plum 
Live Oak 
Sweetbay Magnolia 
Yaupon Holly 
Become a part of our permanent Orlando cityscape commemorating the history of Tinker Field. The Tinker Field History Plaza at Camping World Stadium reflects the community's vision to create a space for people to gather, learn, reflect and honor baseball legends who played in Orlando as well as local and national heroes of the civil rights movement who integrated professional sports in our city.
