Orlando looks to become a city of the future

ORLANDO, Fla. — The city of Orlando is looking at a master plan to get the city ready for the future with technology and innovation to provide more efficient services to residents.

“It could be anything from street lighting, it could be how we report crimes, different things like that. There’s all kinds of opportunities here,” Orlando City Commissioner Patty Sheehan said.
