You are invited to attend a "Community Celebration," planned for Friday, December 14, 2012, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., at Osceola Heritage Park, 1875 Silver Spur Lane, Kissimmee, FL 34774. So that we may plan accordingly, please RSVP to Pam Clancy at pam.clancy@orlando.org   or by phone at 407.835.2486.

At this "Community Celebration" we will showcase the important work coming from "Open for Business," announcing a "Regional Approach to Streamlining Permitting"* across the Central Florida Region.

As a reminder, "Open for Business" was led by a group of faithful Volunteer Leaders, representing a broad-based coalition; working together on behalf of thousands of employers across a seven-county service area including: Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, and Volusia Counties.

"Open for Business" was successfully advanced by the following Founding Partners: the Associated Builders & Contractors, the Central Florida Partnership, the Home Builders Association of Metro Orlando, the Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission, the Orlando Regional REALTOR Association, and Workforce Central Florida; with Shelley Lauten, President of myregion.org serving as Project Director.

This "Community Celebration" represents another important step forward, when it comes to regional cooperation and collaboration; for sure, this "Community Celebration" will be an historic occasion, helping to proudly and properly celebrate our communities working together, knowing that our shared "goal," from the very beginning of "Open for Business," has been to help advance the region's economic recovery, by helping to put "working families back to work."

So you will know, this "Community Celebration" will be hosted by the Executive Board of Advisors of myregion.org and the Central Florida Congress of Regional Leaders; and invited to attend are the Regional Boards of Advisors of myregion.org along with the Volunteer Leaders and Staff of our Founding Partners, Elected and Appointed Officials from Central Florida and, too, from the State of Florida. As a matter of record, this "Regional Approach to Streamlining Permitting"* is the first of its kind in America; with businesses, governments, and citizens working together to send a strong signal to the world that Central Florida is "Open for Business." Along these lines, between now and the "Community Celebration," if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, you're welcome to contact Ms. Lauten or "yours truly."

At this "Community Celebration" we will be excited to share with those in attendance the positive impact this effort will have on our ability to attract and grow businesses; creating more jobs for Central Floridians. Very much, I'm hopeful your calendar will allow you to be in attendance; once again, so that we may plan accordingly, please RSVP to Pam Clancy at pam.clancy@orlando.org or by phone at 407.835.2486.

* Special Note: In preparation for this "Community Celebration," the Central Florida Counties of Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, and Volusia, have adopted a Resolution of Support: Central Florida's "Open for Business" Initiative to Promote Business Climate, Great Service, Job Creation, and Business Investment. In addition, this same Resolution of Support has been adopted by the following Central Florida Cities: Apopka, Clermont, Cocoa, DeLand, Edgewood, Groveland, Haines City, Kissimmee, Maitland, Melbourne, New Smyrna Beach, Orlando, Ormond Beach, Palm Bay, Rockledge, Sanford, St. Cloud, Tavares, Titusville, West Melbourne, and Winter Springs; with other Cities in the process of adopting a Resolution of Support. At this "Community Celebration," all Cities and Counties that will have adopted this Resolution of Support will be properly acknowledged.
