About Us

The idea for the City District has been over a decade in the making. Conceived during the Great Recession of the early 2010s, the City District is comprised of business owners working together to strengthen economic development in Downtown Orlando. With support from local merchants, the City District has continued to grow by becoming a member of Main Street America. Our mission is to bring people together to build better businesses, be good neighbors, and strengthen the community at large.
