Deltona seeking residents’ thoughts on strategic plan
The City of Deltona is seeking the input of residents in defining strategic planning goals significant for our community. Residents are needed to explore needs and opportunities that will enhance Deltona and provide input to the Mayor and Commission and City staff as they develop a strategic plan for Deltona.

The city is working in conjunction with the Florida Institute of Government to provide two community workshops. The first workshop, which is for residents, will be from 9 a.m. to noon, Oct. 17, in the Commission Chambers at City Hall, 2345 Providence Blvd.

The second workshop is for the mayor and commissioner to review and discuss their goals for the city’s future. There will also be a brief time for public comment at this workshop as well.  This second workshop will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Nov. 7, also in the Chambers at City Hall.
