Residents are being asked to weigh in on how money should be spent on projects within the city’s Downtown Community Redevelopment Area.

Over the past few years, the Downtown CRA has been able to accumulate roughly $600,000 in reserves that must be used for a major capital project or several smaller capital projects. Together, the Downtown CRA Board, city staff and MainStreet DeLand Association developed a list of projects that align with the city’s redevelopment plan for the downtown area.

Project ideas include leveling the pavers for the downtown sidewalks; rejuvenation of stamped concrete at many of the downtown intersections; a streetscaping project along Voorhis Avenue; paving a grass lot off of Rich Avenue; renovation of Sunflower and Painters Pond Park; investment in a smart parking management system for downtown’s parking spots and an interactive directory in Pioneer Park.

Residents will be asked to list their top five choices in terms of projects on a short survey. The survey is available at the following link: Downtown CRA Survey.

Responses will be accepted through February 26. The results will be tabulated and presented to the Downtown CRA for consideration and approval.
