My students and I are working with the City of DeLand to host a series of public participation forums on DeLand 2050, which is a joint planning project the City is conducting with Volusia County to develop a vision for the long term future of the greater DeLand area. We have completed our first meeting and will be conducting five more over the next month. The public’s input will be used by the City and the County to inform a series of joint planning agreements. The announcement for the series of meetings follows:
The City of DeLand is working with Volusia County and partnering with
Stetson University to plan for the future of the DeLand region. DeLand
2050 is aimed at creating sustainability that protects and enhances
quality of life; uses resources efficiently; and invests in efficient
and sustainable infrastructure. This will ensure that future residents
of this area enjoy a quality of life that is as good or better than what
we have now.
