Orange County is seeking input from residents regarding transportation policy, priorities and direction. Originally launched in 2019, Mayor Demings proposed a Transportation Initiative to add a penny sales tax to fund transportation issues in Orange County. This initiative has now been re-launched, with the goal to put the proposed sales tax increase on the November 2022 ballot. The pay would be paid by everyone in Orange County, with visitors and tourists paying approximately 51% of the funds the tax would generate.
Horizon West continues to experience transportation issues from rapid development in the area, causing road segments to fail, lack of roadway capacity, and difficulties obtaining traffic signals due to their cost. Many of the road expansions that have occurred in Horizon West are funded by developers, not Orange County.

- How do you get to work, school, appointments, etc.?
