Let Us Know
Over the next several months, we will be attending events throughout the city where people can write down their thoughts on ways we can improve the city. Please write anything - but keep it clean and reasonable :)
There will be chalkboards located in Artisan Alley and on the south side of The Elusive Grape where you can write your thoughts down about any topic that you think will improve our city. Trader Joe's anyone?
Also, to get the word out, we have setup a selfie spot with our logo by each chalkboard. Please feel free to post a photo Facebook or Twitter with comments on how to better our community with the hashtag #YouAreDeLand - perhaps we might even share it with our audience. post gathering comments to be incorporated into the city's 2050 Vision Plan.
The bottom line is we want your input on how we can make DeLand an awesome place to live, work and play for future generations.
Be sure to check back to this site for any updates or new announcements.
How you can contribute
Come see our chalkboards at Artisan Alley or on the south side of The Elusive Grape where you can write comments on issues concerning the future of our community.
If you cannot visit our chalkboard, we have a survey for you to fill out. Please consider taking a few minutes of your time to complete either one.
Attend one of the public events scheduled around the DeLand region. You will be able to discuss the present and future of the DeLand region with our staff and provide input about You Are DeLand. Keep an eye on this website and the City's Facebook page for updates.
Here are the events we are planning to attend:
- DeLand Indie Market - Sunday, May 12
- DeLand Ice Cream Walk - Friday, June 7
- Firecracker Festival - July 3
- Tropical Nights - July 19
- Mayor's Backpack Giveaway -
- DeLand Craft Show - September 28
Your input through the public participation process will shape future planning so please send us your comments and let others know about our project.
As we compile citizens' comments in the coming months, we will ultimately present what we have learned and provide more opportunities to receive input at future public meetings. This should help us focus on key aspects of our community's future as the city updates its plans.
