Mayor Dyer and the City Council have viewed the Community Venues project as an opportunity to make a significant and long-term, positive impact on the local neighborhoods.
This historic project provides the City with an opportunity to connect residents with jobs and local businesses with contracts to build these Venues. The City of Orlando has committed to a BLUEPRINT that will serve as a framework and model for inclusiveness and community building throughout the various levels of contracting. Special emphasis will be made to ensure that maximum opportunities are awarded to local, small and disadvantaged businesses, as well as minorities and women, in the areas of job creation and training, business development and the procurement of goods, professional and construction services in association with the construction of the new Venues.
