Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer to Hold Annual State of
Downtown Address at Amway Center
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer will deliver his 2012 State of Downtown Address
on Wednesday, October 3, 2012, on the floor of the LEED Gold Certified
Amway Center. This annual event held by the Downtown Orlando Partnership
provides a forum for Mayor Dyer to share the City’s progress on the
revitalization of Downtown Orlando with Central Florida residents,
business owners and downtown workers.
This year’s topic will focus on the City’s Green Works Orlando
initiative and will be highlighted by featured speaker, Nancy Sutley,
Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, who will
speak about the role of the federal government in partnership with
cities like Orlando to develop and meet sustainability goals.
At this year’s address, Mayor Dyer will also announce the launch of the
next phase of Green Works Orlando – community engagement and planning.
This sustainability plan will serve as a road map to steer future
