Tomorrow, Wednesday, February 29, 2012, Mayor Dyer will deliver his
annual State of the City address at the UCF College of Medicine in Lake
The annual State of the City address allows Mayor Dyer to
share the City’s current and future plans with Orlando’s residents. This
year’s speech will also highlight the Medical City, Orlando’s emerging
bio-tech and life science cluster, which continues to create high-value
jobs and reinvent the Central Florida economy.

UCF College of Medicine

For those who are not able to attend Mayor Dyer’s State
of the City address, live feed and additional viewing opportunities will

Immediately following the State of the City address,
Mayor Dyer will tour Lake Nona’s newest residential neighborhood,
Laureate Park. This housing community offers the closest residences to
the emerging Medical City and builds on the innovation of the bio-tech
and life science cluster with a vision of minimizing environmental
impact and maximizing access to healthcare.
See first-hand how a partnership with GE makes the homes at Lake Nona’s
Laureate Park the new standard for sustainable design and in-home
healthcare. This partnership will provide reductions of at least 20
percent in energy, emissions and water usage in every home through:
- Pre-wiring in garages for Electric Vehicle (EV)
chargers in all homes keeping auto emissions at a minimum.
- Efficient appliances help homeowners keep power
usage and costs down, such as GE’s innovative hybrid heat pump water
heater, the GeoSpring™, which typically saves families up to 62
percent annually on home energy costs.
- The community will also feature LED street
lighting designed specifically for Laureate Park.
- GE’s InBody devices at Lake Nona homes allow
community members to keep track of their well-being on a day-to-day
level and meet goals of weight loss and better fitness.
