Osceola County is inviting the community to learn about the Simpson Road improvement project at a public information meeting scheduled for March 2, 2021.
This project is in the design phase for Phases 2, 3, and 4 and is consistent with the recommendations resulting from the Simpson Road Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Study. This public meeting is being held to present the proposed improvements to the community and receive input.
The County is offering three ways for interested persons to participate.
- In-Person Open House Option: Interested persons may attend an in-person open house at the St. Cloud Meeting Room at Osceola Heritage Park at 1875 Silver Spur Lane, Kissimmee, FL 34744. Attendees will have an opportunity to come anytime between 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. to view a looping presentation and project displays, speak with project team members and provide comments. The County requests advance registration for this option by contacting the project manager Daniel Kelly at 407-742-0533 or Daniel.Kelly@osceola.org to ensure all attendees are accommodated safely and according to social distancing guidelines.

The VPM will begin at 6 p.m. and will include the same presentation offered at the in-person location.
