About Vision Orange City:

In the spring of 2016, a group of community leaders came together to talk about the future of Orange City. The question was asked “What do we want Orange City to look like in 2035?” The group met and determined vision statements for the community to be used as a guide for future planning.

These 2035 vision statements include:

– Grow the industrial base to increase industrial employment by at least 1,000 employees.
– Increase total retail establishment sales to at least $140,000,000 and have at least 300 retail establishments.
– Expand Orange City area population and housing to accommodate at least 10,000 citizens.
– Establish Orange City as the premier place to live within 50 miles.
– Assure Orange City infrastructure can accommodate 10,000 – 12,000 citizens
