At 2pm at Heroe’s Commons at Jefferson Park (1205 Polk Street, Corner of Benson Avenue in Downtown Orlando) Mayor Dyer will join the Florida Real Estate Foundation, the charitable arm of the Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association, at the groundbreaking ceremony for the first home built in Heroes’ Commons at Jefferson Park. This housing development will provide six mortgage-free homes for our local military veterans, law enforcement officers and other public safety personnel. At the event, local army veteran, Keon Madison, and his family will take part as their new forever home begins construction. The Heroes’ Commons project furthers the City’s efforts to ensure Orlando is a City for everyone by providing residents with access to affordable, safe housing.
