ORLANDO (CityofOrlando.net) – Each year on April 22, Earth Day helps raise awareness about environmental protection. In The City Beautiful, concern for the environment is a daily occurrence.
“Our community prides itself in our beautiful park and tree canopy, clean streets and clear lakes. And the partnership among City government, businesses and residents that makes it all happen is stronger than ever,” Mayor Buddy Dyer said. “We know that a protected environment is a key component of our outstanding quality of life and we’re working hard every day to continue to make Orlando the best place to live, work and raise a family.”
