About

The DeLeon Springs Community Association, Inc. grew out of the DeLeon Springs Merchant’s Association, a group of local merchants who wanted to see DeLeon Springs prosper and the downtown corridor improved.

In 2011, the DeLeon Springs Community Association, Inc. incorporated as a 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to “making DeLeon Springs A Better Place to Live, Work and Play”.

What began as a small group of volunteers, blossomed into a determined team of committed citizens, with a broad mission that includes a wide range of volunteers across the community, whose dedication drives our efforts and has accomplished outstanding goals.

Early in our history, we worked with Volusia County to create a District Overlay to define a downtown area, eliminate split zoning along the Highway 17 corridor, and worked with Volusia County and FDEP to create the LEAD 1 and LEAD 2 (Local Economic Advancement District) Brownfield Designations, a historic first for unincorporated Volusia County.

We continued to prod the FDEP to complete excavation of the underground fuel plume, discovered under Highway 17 in the 1980s, in order to protect our water supply, our beloved DeLeon Spring and the health of our community, a four phased project costing over $10,000,000 that was completed in 2014.

Our drive to modernize the downtown corridor with critical water and sewer services is now on the horizon and these infrastructure improvements will also help protect the health of DeLeon Springs, lessoning pollution while helping our economy.

Our annual backpack drives, monthly food donations and Thanksgiving Baskets help those in need while our annual Ride Into Reading Third Grade Challenge, and DSCA, Inc. Merit Scholarships promote learn skills and higher education opportunities.

These are lofty goals for a non-profit organization, striving to enhance our tiny, unincorporated community, and our volunteers make it all happen with gusto and good humor, with our motto in focus, “Making DeLeon Springs A Better Place to Live, Work and Play”.
