Here in the City of DeLand, we are preparing for the future and we want input from you - our residents.

Every 10 years the city has updated its Vision Plan to prepare for how DeLand could look in the future. Resident input is crucial in molding the plan for our community to ensure that future residents of this area enjoy a quality of life that is as good or better than we have now.

DeLand 2050

The most recent Vision Plan, DeLand 2050, aimed to promote sustainability, protect and enhance quality of life, use resources efficiently, and invest in efficient and sustainable infrastructure.

The 2050 Vision Plan was developed in 2010, a time the country was emerging from an economic recession. Ten years later, viewpoints may have changed so it is time to take another look at our community.

The population of our city was about 27,000 in 2010 and is now over 34,000 people, with more moving in each year. Developing a framework to guide this growth has become very important as the city is faced with new development proposals. Development has once again become a critical topic for our community and the city is looking to update its vision on how to address this growth.

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 - we might even share your ideas on our Facebook and Twitter pages! Ultimately, your comments will be used to guide the update to 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.

Option 3

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:

  • Tropical Nights - July 19
  • Mayor's Backpack Giveaway - July 20
  • DeLand Craft Show - September 28

What's next?

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.
