ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Orange County commissioners met Tuesday to discuss how to spend $900 million in tourism tax money.
Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings sent a memo last week with new recommendations for that money.
In the letter he sent to county commissioners, he had recommendations for seven different projects he thinks should get the funding.
Demings letter gave an updated proposal to the University of Central Florida for $10 million a year over the next nine years.
He says this funding will go towards the school’s sports facility.
Most of his proposals listed in the letter are unchanged from the original conversations.
He lists $400 million should still go towards Florida Citrus Sports to update the upper terrace deck and field house at Camping World Stadium.
He also recommended no more than $256 million should still go to projects for the Amway Center.
He also states funding to be distributed to an Orange County Convention Center project, arts and cultural affairs, and an application review committee.
