The Volusia County Council will conduct a workshop to discuss the future of the Volusia Forever and ECHO grant programs at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, in the second-floor training room of the Historic Courthouse, 125 W. Indiana Ave., DeLand.
Both programs were approved by Volusia County voters in 2000. The ECHO grant program provides funds for the acquisition or construction of environmental, cultural, historic and outdoor recreation facilities for the public. Volusia Forever has allowed for the acquisition and management of environmentally sensitive lands, as well as protection of water resources.
The public is invited to attend the workshop, but there will be no public participation.
For more information, call the County Manager’s Office at 386-736-5920.
