The first being an overall development plan to divide the subject 11.4 acre parcel into a two lot commercial development (2018-S-ODP-0025).

The second item up for the DRC’s review and discussion is a 9,100 square foot retail building (Dollar General) on 1.54 acres of the 11.4 acre parcel (2018-F-FSP-0023).

With the City of New Smyrna Beach expanding further west, what are your thoughts on new commercial development in the rural Samsula community?

Volusia County residents receive TRIM (Truth in Millage) notices

All Volusia County residents were mailed, and many received their TRIM (Truth in Millage) notices over the weekend. The Property Appraiser’s office has created a page explaining what the TRIM notice is comprised of, and better explains each section of this notice.

Please visit http://vcpa.vcgov.org/trimTool.html for a better explanation.

It is important to note the Property Appraiser’s office does values only. You will want to pay close attention to each taxing authorities public hearing dates and times as this is where they vote to adopt their proposed rates. What this means to you is they are voting to set the rates which can equate to increases, and sometimes decreases in your tax bill. If you disagree with the amount of your taxes, YOU MUST ATTEND these meetings and let your voice be heard!

This is also a good time to review the exemptions you are currently getting as there are a number of them… many of which can save you big bucks! Along with the homestead exemption, there are additional senior exemptions, disability exemptions, veteran and first responder exemptions, and many more!

Information on all exemptions can be viewed at http://vcpa.vcgov.org/exemptions.html.

Florida Power & Light seeking rezoning for new solar site in New Smyrna Beach/Samsula area

The Volusia County Planning and Land Development Regulation Commission on March 14, 2017 is scheduled discuss rezoning the old “Kirkland Sod” location in the New Smyrna Beach and Samsula areas for a new public utility site. The parcels border SR44 to the south and Ranchette Road to the east.

Florida Power & Light purchased the location in 2016 and is looking to rezone 1,192 acres. A majority of the property is presently cleared and per the PLDRC packet, FPL hopes to make it a universal solar energy center with photovoltaic panels placed around the majority of the 1,192 acre parcel.

Volusia County Staff recommends approval of the zoning change. Should the PLDRC also recommend approval, the zoning request will be brought to the County Council. Per the PLDRC website, this has tentatively been placed on the County Council’s April 20, 2017 public hearing.

The PLDRC hearing information can be downloaded at: http://www.volusia.org/core/fileparse.php/5906/urlt/Z17024.pdf

Developer Geosam Capital planning large development on State Road 44

When someone mentions new development in New Smyrna Beach, you hear two arguments for AND against… But it will bring new jobs is what they say and that is the top positive in many minds. On the opposite end of the spectrum are those New Smyrna Beach residents who have watched their City expand with new development – a new Walmart here, car dealership there, hotel and condos lining the beachside area, etc. The once quaint beach town now has the look of a future Dunlawton Blvd in Port Orange or Granada Blvd in Ormond Beach.

Real estate developer Geosam Capital is proposing just that – more development: both residential and commercial. According to the Hometown News article from Friday, January 13, 2017, the “shopping center planned for the intersection of State Road 44 and Interstate 95 could rival the size of the recently opened Tanger Factory Outlet Center in Daytona Beach.”

City of New Smyrna Beach experiencing commercial growth; outlook for 2017

The City of New Smyrna Beach is experiencing an influx of new commercial development concentrated on the State Road 44 corridor. With the addition of the New Smyrna Beach Chevy and Ford dealership, construction is also underway for the Dodge/Chrysler dealership as well as a Verizon Wireless retail store recently opening at the Timberlane/SR44 intersection.

According to the City of New Smyrna Beach’s January 2017 Development Activity Report, a permit was issued in November for a new Autozone car parts store; a new Circle K gas station at the Glencoe Road/SR 44 intersection where “Buddy World” was located; and a meeting to discuss a RaceTrac fuel station across from Walmart.

Other interesting development news includes a meeting being held for a proposed Hyatt Place hotel in the prior Outback Steakhouse plaza.
