The West Orange Chamber’s geographical boundaries are located in the center of the State of Florida and include three cities, two towns and several of the fastest growing master planned developments in the western portion of Orange County. Orange County is one of four counties encompassing 50 cities that make up the Orlando Metropolitan Statistical Area. Metro Orlando contains approximately 2.08 million residents and is the 27th largest MSA in the country.
West Orange County is experiencing strong growth in many industry sectors, including high-tech, media and entertainment, finance, insurance, real estate and professional services. The Economic Development Committee of the Chamber actively works with economic partners such as myregion.org, Enterprise Florida, Florida Economic Development Council, Florida High Tech Corridor Council and the Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission to sustain existing businesses, attract new businesses and create high-wage jobs.
Projections show that there will be 314,574 people living in the West Orange Chamber Area by 2014. The area is a dynamic center of opportunity and possibilities, as many entrepreneurs already know, and the Chamber is fostering a vision for the community that reaches to 2015.
West Orange’s pro-business environment is the result, in part, of the many programs and initiatives that have been created or expanded to help businesses succeed. Many entrepreneurs have already discovered the benefits of West Orange, with plans and development of a minimum of an additional two million square feet of commercial real estate under way. West Orange’s access to major highways, railways and convenient proximity to airports, seaports and even a spaceport make it an attractive location. The West Orange Chamber is proactive in offering resources, workshops, training and networking programs to help small and large businesses succeed.
