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.
