Rick Singh Report

Happy New Year

It's time to prepare for a new year and a new beginning. We have a chance to start 2019 with a clean slate, with new goals and aspirations. I hope you are closing out this year with a sense of peace and happiness and that the new year brings you all that you can dream possible.

Let's all make 2019 the best year yet!

Homestead Exemption Filing Season

Did you know that having Homestead Exemptions can reduce the taxable value of your home by as much as $50,000? Florida law allows everyone who has legal or equitable title to real estate and maintains it as their permanent residence to apply for homestead property tax exemptions. The deadline to file the application is March 1.

In January and February 2019, OCPA will host a series of Homestead Exemption satellite offices throughout Orange County to assist homeowners in filing their applications to save money on property taxes. The detailed satellite office schedule is located here.

Bright Lights Big County

Our inaugural year of a crowdsourced map for holiday lights was a BIG success! Dozens of home and business owners submitted photos of their decorated properties. THANK YOU to all who participated by adding photos or utilizing the map to visit decorated properties.

The "House of Adriaansen" located in Apopka.

By inviting residents to our website to access the holiday lights map, we were also able to share the extensive amounts of data and information available to them. Bright Lights Big County: OCPA Holiday Lights Crowdsourced Map utilized a small portion of our state-of-the-art mapping capabilities to add to the holiday experience of our residents.

We are already excited about our 2019 campaign!

OCPA Gives Back

For the 2018 holiday season, OCPA staff collected toys and gifts for Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. Our hearts were touched by their program that makes sure every child in the hospital on Christmas morning receives a bag full of presents. We're proud to be a part of this amazing program, and of the nearly 100% participation by OCPA staff resulting in over 500 toys and gifts for children and families.

Greeting the Community - Holiday Events

OCPA staff showed their holiday spirit for the 2018 Avalon Aglow Parade! 

Rick Singh and OCPA staff joined the festivities for the Hunter's Creek Christmas Parade.

OCPA staff joined with friends and neighbors on Winter Park's Park Avenue for "Ye Olde Hometown Christmas Parade." Rick Singh, along with representatives from OCPA, enjoyed meeting constituents and joining in the holiday spirit. 

We also stopped by the Apopka Christmas Parade ... one of the largest in the area!
