Mayor Bill Frederick's Key to the City of Orlando
Mayor Frederick's Key to the City
The city key presented to Mayor Bill Frederick (b. 1934), who served as the Mayor of Orlando from 1980 to 1992. He succeeded long-time mayor Carl T. Langford (1918-2011), who had retired in 1980 after a significant success in transforming Orlando into a modern city. Mayor Frederick expanded the Orlando International Airport, which was developed during his predecessor's tenure. Mayor Frederick supported the arts and education and his progressive approach as mayor transformed Orlando into The City Beautiful. He renovated Lake Eola Park, reduced the crime rate in the city, built the original Orlando Arena, and improved public schooling with COMPACT, a program that provided mentors for students in Orange County Public Schools (OCPS). Mayor Frederick also saw the construction of the new $36-million-dollar Orlando City Hall, located at 400 South Orange Avenue.
