BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS HYBRID IN-PERSON AND ONLINE MEETINGS DURING COVID-19 RESPONSE
Your employees and customers will have no difficulty traveling to Seminole County from anywhere in the country. Our location and fully-funded road system play a vital role in our successful business development. We're uniquely situated in the heart of Central Florida. Interstate 4 and the new expressway provide fast and convenient accessibility to the vibrant city of Orlando, the Orlando International Airport as well as serving as major arteries to other regional and national centers of commerce.
A good business location not only offers convenience, but also flexibility. Seminole County's growing freight and passenger rail service has ready access to a large number of industrial parks, a large trucking network and deep port access on both coasts. We are the southern terminus for the Amtrak Autotrain.
Expansion is the key word in describing the Orlando Sanford International Airport. In 2018, they served over 3 million passengers and continue to grow as a business location. The Port of Sanford, conveniently located adjacent to I-4, offers easy access to the growing Florida market. Seminole Community College, in partnership with the University of Central Florida Technology Incubator and Seminole County, operates a highly successful Seminole Technology Business Incubation Center, offering office and laboratory rental space as small as 144 square feet, with numerous support services available. Additionally, the Small Business Development Center is conveniently located in the Seminole Technology Business Incubation Center and offers a host of services to new business start-ups.
Seminole County's location and transportation system is a combination of both centralized convenience and good, strategic planning. We're perfectly positioned to adapt and grow into one of the nation's leaders in business and development.
