Since 2005, Winter Park Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, Council of Leaders, and members have dedicated countless hours to supporting the development of commuter rail in Central Florida. Today, Florida Department of Transportation Secretary, Ananth Prasad, announced that Governor Rick Scott has lent his support for SunRail.
This is a historic decision that will positively impact the Winter Park community for generations. “Winter Park was built on the railway and SunRail will further enhance the quality of our community and the success of our local economy,” explained Patrick W. Chapin, President/CEO for the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce. “The residents, businesses and community leaders have long supported this initiative. I applaud their tireless support of SunRail and celebrate the success of all our efforts.”
“We’re looking forward to the first train pulling into Central Park in 2014,” added Chapin. “Winter Park truly stands to benefit from this new transit alternative.”
