Welcome to 2013 and another exciting year with the DSCA, Inc. Our organization is on the move with new and exciting efforts to ‘make DeLeon Springs A Better Place to Live, Work and Play’ as our saying goes. As a 501c3 our mission is broad, but to give you the official version, here it is:

Continue working with City of DeLand, Volusia County, FDEP, USDA, etc. to get water and sewer utility lines extended to businesses, to bring the DeLeon Springs commercial corridor into the 21st century
Urge FDEP to continue the underground fuel plume contamination clean up under Highway 17’s north and southbound lanes
Keep the community informed about FDOT’s planned 4-laning of Hwy 17 from DeLeon Springs to Barberville
