On May 20, 2014, Seminole County voters approved the 3rd generation of the One Cent Infrastructure Sales Tax. Known as the Penny Sales Tax, collections are levied on the sale of consumer goods to visitors, residents, and businesses, ensuring the cost to construct and maintain infrastructure is shared.

To date the money has been spent on sidewalk improvements, Streetscapes, trail and roadway construction, asphalt resurfacing and road rehabilitation. There are a number of projects in design such as the St Johns Pkwy – Upsala Road Intersection Improvement, Celery Avenue – Mellonville Avenue intersection improvement, Aero Lane traffic and circulation improvement and the Georgetown Sidewalk, Road and Drainage Improvements.
