    Cecilia Maier, Board Member, Resident

    "I started volunteering with IVMS Design Committee in 2017, soon after I moved to Orlando from NYC. In January 2019 I became the IVMS Design Committee Co-Chair and was invited to join the IVMS Board. I also joined the Jingle Eve Planning Committee in 2019.

    As an Architect and Urban Designer, my main goal has always been to help the community through my professional actions and decisions. Placemaking is much more than defining a space of urban quality; it is about bringing art and thoughtful design to the district, engaging the community with others and their surroundings, motivating residents with a beautiful environment we try to build, giving local artists professional opportunities, creating new identities, preserving history, identifying the good and transforming the obsolete, and bringing people closer. This is – and will always be – my motto as a Board and Committee member. This is my way to give back to the Orlando community after having felt so welcomed when I was new to this amazing city.

    It's been such a gratifying ride so far, surrounded by passionate and committed people who also believe in growth. And it is much more gratifying to know there are so many good things ahead."

    "I initially heard about the Ivanhoe Village Main Street when I first moved into the neighborhood. Seeing that they were responsible for planning a number of the biggest events that take place in the neighborhood, made it something that I gravitated towards and I started volunteering on a few of their different committees. After living in the area for about a year, I have joined the Board as a Resident Member.

    I have seen great value in being involved in the community that I live in and being on the Board has allowed me access to further contribute to the development and vitalization of the neighborhood, through the events and programs that we set up. It has been rewarding to be around a passionate group of people within our district who really want the area to thrive for its local business owners and residents.”
