How safe to you feel downtown? Orlando's City District want to know now!

Orlando's City District Main Street wants to know how safe you feel downtown.


On Tuesday, January 17, 2023 the City of Orlando held a meeting regarding proposed changes to safety and security in our community.


In search of new, effective safety and security measures, the City has proposed new regulations that would force downtown bars and clubs to close at midnight instead of the current 2 am.


Plus, they want to prevent any new bars and clubs from opening for the next six months.

In the wake of these proposals, City District Main Street is asking the community to participate in a survey to discover how safe people feel downtown and what can be done to improve safety.


The 18-question survey takes about 5 minutes and asks a variety of safety-related questions, including the level of police protection in downtown Orlando, if you've been a victim of a violent crime, and your thoughts on what can be done to decrease violence.


City District Main Street commented "The intent of this survey is to gauge the current safety sentiment, needs of workers, residents, businesses, property owners and visitors in downtown Orlando, while soliciting solutions"
