Update on the State of the City

Having served Orlando’s residents as Mayor since 2003, Buddy Dyer has worked tirelessly to advance the community’s shared vision for Orlando as America’s 21st Century City. Through strategic investments, Orlando is becoming America’s new home for inclusiveness, innovation, transportation, opportunity and quality of life.

Mayor Dyer helped the community unite and heal following the June 2016 Pulse nightclub tragedy that took the lives of 49 people and injured more than 50, vowing that Orlando would not be defined by one hateful act, but instead by responding with love and compassion.

He has shaped Orlando into a desirable place to live, work, learn and play. He is leading the efforts to diversify Central Florida’s economy and create a new breed of high-tech, high-wage careers for residents in cutting-edge industries such as digital media, life sciences and biotechnology, modeling, simulation and training and aviation and aerospace.

Mayor Dyer is an advocate for the expansion of public transit and for creating an environmentally sustainable city. His commitment to bolstering police protection helped bring about the most dramatic reduction in crime in Orlando history. This focus on safety has also helped make the Orlando Fire Department one of the elite departments in the entire country.

Since his first day in office, Mayor Dyer has strived to increase cooperation and partnership between Central Florida’s many governments, its business and civic communities and its residents. The result of this effort is a new era of collaboration that has paved the way for a string of remarkable, “game-changing” accomplishments for greater Orlando in a very short period of time and has set the City on course for a more prosperous future.
