The Spring Hill Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) was jointly created by Volusia County and the City of DeLand in September, 2004, to address the conditions of slum and blight found within the community. As the City of DeLand and Volusia County grow and experience the effects of revitalization, economic development, and population growth, they have recognized the challenges facing the Spring Hill community. This CRA serves as the catalyst for change and revitalization of this community.
The CRA allows for a dedicated funding source for improvement projects through the tax increment financing (TIF) mechanism. Simplistically, this mechanism allows the tax increment from increased property values to be dedicated to CRA improvement projects. This funding source, leveraged with other sources such as CDBG grants, has allowed several projects to be undertaken within the CRA.
The Spring Hill Redevelopment Area consists of nearly 445 acres of and is generally located south of Beresford Avenue, east of State Road 15A, north of Taylor Road, and west of Woodland Boulevard.
