Development in Osceola County takes shape.

Development in Osceola County takes shape.

Osceola county floridaOsceola Country is in the southern part of the greater Orlando area which consists of several counties. This is not a test! The names of the counties, starting up I-4 north are: Volusia, Lake, Seminole, Orange, Osceola and Polk. There is development in these counties but, so far, Osceola has remained pretty rural. In-between communities of great substance such as Celebration and Poinciana, there are huge areas of ranches and farmland. Driving, I often see cows.

Since the year 2000, though, over 78,000 acres of land have been sold. Over 53,000 acres scene from osceola county floridaof that land comes under the possibility of future development. The Orlando Sentinel reports that the more than 50,000 acres of land available for potential development could support 150,000 homes and 400,000 people. That means a lot more people! The population of Osceola County could potentially triple!

The salient question though is this: knowing that quality of life will be affected, how will leaders plan for the coming boom? Will there be traffic-heavy roads or urban-type clusters of shopping and entertainment close to home? Suburban sprawl or local town centers?
