Letís Clean Up Semoran!
On Saturday, February 26, Orlando residents and members of the Semoran Business Partnership came together to clean up the Semoran corridor. Almost 250 volunteers joined Mayor Buddy Dyer and District 2 Commissioner Tony Ortiz in an effort to further beautify the Semoran Boulevard neighborhood.
During the ďLetís Clean Up Semoran!Ē event, volunteers picked up trash between Curry Ford Road and Lake Underhill Road while also helping to raise funds for future planned improvements made along Semoran Boulevard.
The event helped the neighborhood implement some of their goals outlined in the recently completed vision plan for the area. The Semoran Boulevard Vision Plan, developed under Commissioner Ortizís leadership, is a long-term guide for future development and improvements in the area.
