DeLeon Springs Community Association, Inc.
Celebrating NINE YEARS of Service to our Community
Here are some of the highlights from our brief history,

Making DeLeon Springs a better place to…

LIVE:

  • We help our community members in need through our Annual Backpack Giveaway, Summer McInnis Elementary School “Adopt a Family” food drive, Annual Thanksgiving Baskets, Holiday Warm Pullover and Jacket Drive, and aid our troops through Cell Phones for Soldiers and “Troopons” Coupons for Soldiers
  • We have an ongoing partnership with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office to reduce crime and have increased neighborhood involvement and crime prevention awareness
  • Our DSCA, Inc. Merit Scholarship is awarded each year to a worthy DeLeon Springs high school student to further their education toward a brighter future
  • We host the International Walk to School Day in conjunction with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office and McInnis Elementary School that promotes awareness of the hazards of walking and biking to/from school and the need for increased safety for our students
  • We have increased the community’s awareness of recycling opportunities and promote participation in recycling to clean up our community
  • We keep our community abreast of FDEP and Department Of Health regulations for protecting the water supply in Spring Basins to comply with the FDEP Basin Management Action Plan, (BMAP) and the latest requirements for building, working and living within them

WORK:

  • We worked with the FDEP and Volusia County Utilities to procure a $2,500,000 grant to bring water and wastewater lines to our business corridor so our ‘downtown’ businesses can thrive and grow
  • We worked with Volusia County to create a district overlay that utilizes B-4 zoning in the downtown area, and reduced setback requirements, to bring economic growth and flexibility to businesses
  • We worked with Volusia County to eliminate split zoning, providing more economic potential for commercial properties
  • We worked with the FDEP and Volusia County to create two Brownfield Area Designations for enhanced economic development opportunities in the ‘downtown’ and US Highway 17 north corridor
  • Our ongoing partnership with FDOT communicates US Highway 17 widening updates, road closures, bridge repair and road construction information so inconvenience is reduced as people travel to and from work and activities

PLAY:

  • Our annual reading incentive program, “The Ride Into Reading Third Grade Challenge” is in its eighth year of awarding a new bicycle and helmet to both the top scoring boy and girl at McInnis Elementary School, and we award monthly gift cards to the most improved readers
  • We sponsor the new Chuck Lennon Hiking Trail, and promote the Chuck Lennon Mountain Biking Trails and nearly-completed DeLeon Springs section of the River To Sea Loop
  • We host the Annual Art Among the Trees Art, Music and Craft Festival, with an emphasis on music, crafts, non-profits, historic and nature exhibits, great food, and fun activities in a festive atmosphere for everyone in the area to enjoy, free of charge
  • We sponsor and participate in the Annual Taylor High School “Wildcat 5-K Fun-Run/Walk” that benefits Taylor’s cross country programs which keeps students active and fit, while giving the community a fun event to participate in


Congratulations DSCA, Inc. members on
NINE YEARS OF OUTSTANDING SERVICE
