Dollar General store coming to Samsula?

The County of Volusia’s Development Review Committee will be discussing plans for a new Dollar General store near the State Road 44 and SR 415 (Tomoka Farms Road) intersection in the Samsula/New Smyrna Beach area on November 15, 2017 at 9:00am.

Two items are on the DRC agenda for the proposed aforementioned development (https://www.volusia.org/core/fileparse.php/5888/urlt/111517StaffReviewAgenda.pdf)

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).

I sent an email to the County’s planning department inquiring if plans are available for review but have yet to hear back. An aerial photo of the proposed location is above.

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

UPDATE – November 6, 2017

A copy of a survey was obtained from the County of Volusia showing the proposed location just west of the existing gas station on State Road 44.

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.
