Volusia County - The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold an informational public meeting for the St. Johns River to Sea Loop Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study from Lake Beresford Park to Grand Avenue in DeLand, in Volusia County. This public meeting is the first of two meetings being held throughout the 18-month PD&E study. The purpose of the meeting is to introduce the project to the public and to receive input from the public and interested stakeholders.
The St. Johns River to Sea Loop is a 260-mile trail system that will link together several communities including St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, Titusville, DeLand, and Palatka. The PD&E study is evaluating options for a multi-use trail that will close the 3.6-mile gap between existing trails terminating within Lake Beresford Park to the south and at the junction of Grand Avenue and Minnesota Avenue to the north. At this time, the study team is in the process of collecting engineering and environmental data and developing multi-use trail alternatives.
The public meeting is being held on: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Volusia County’s Thomas C. Kelly Administration Center, in the First Floor Training Room, located at 123 W. Indiana Avenue, DeLand, Florida 32720. The meeting will be an open house format with no formal presentation. People are welcome to attend anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Team members will be available to answer questions and take comments. The public can also submit formal comments at this meeting about the project. Please note that while the building address is on Indiana Avenue, the building entrance and all parking is located on West Rich Avenue.
