City, Volusia to meet March 6

A joint public meeting between the Volusia County Council and the Daytona Beach Shores City Council will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, in the media room of the Emergency Operations Center, 3825 Tiger Bay Road, Daytona Beach.
The meeting is being held pursuant to Section 164.1055, Florida Statutes, part of the Florida Governmental Conflict Resolution Act.

The purpose of this meeting is to consider the following issues:

The jurisdiction of the county in relation to the city relative to property adjacent to the beach located within the city that has been acquired by the county for beach access.

Whether the county can agree to purchase future parking areas only on the west side of Highway A1A.

The payment or payments in lieu of taxation by the county to the city and whether there is another means whereby the city can be paid in a manner that will offset the city’s loss of ad valorem tax revenues resulting from the county’s acquisition of properties.

The effect of the city’s recently enacted parking ordinance upon future county parking projects on the west side of Highway A1A.

Whether the county will agree to no beach parking along areas where on-beach parking has been replaced by off-beach parking lots (beach driving would not cease).

Whether the County Council will agree with the first filed county plans for off-beach parking, which provide for some recreational amenities.

The public is invited to attend the meeting.
