Deltona Information


The City of Deltona

Southwest Volusia County's early inhabitants were Timucuan Indians who found fish and fresh water to be abundant in the area. Later as Florida became a state, steamboats began to regularly visit the area, landing at Lake Monroe. The area soon became a small community consisting of a school and two churches and came to be known as Enterprise.

Down the road, Baron Fredrick DeBary bought several hundred acres for a fishing preserve and built a winter home where he entertained Presidents and European royalty. His winter home is now known as the DeBary mansion. And so it was that the quiet life in Southwest Volusia continued until 1962 when the Mackle brothers bought 17,203 acres, filed for a planned unit development with 35,143 lots and named the area Deltona. The first Deltona residents arrived in April of 1963. By the end of that year 78 families had arrived in Deltona. That growth rate has remained steady to bring Deltona's population to 71,599 and grants the city status as being the largest city in Volusia County.

In September of 1995, after two previous attempts, the residents voted to incorporate as the new City of Deltona. The City of Deltona has recently completed construction on its City Hall, located on Providence Blvd. Deltona includes more than 100 lakes totaling over 8.4 square miles. There are six elementary schools, two middle schools and two high schools serving the students of Deltona. There are also 41 park sites in Deltona.

The City of Deltona provides quality and cost efficient municipal services. Police protection is provided through inter-local agreements with the Volusia County Sheriff's Department. Deltona is centrally located between Daytona Beach and Orlando and is considered to be an "edge city" to the city of Orlando. Deltona abuts the rural communities of Cassadaga, Enterprise and Osteen. It is adjacent to the cities of Orange City and DeBary. Its proximity to Orlando, quality of life and affordable housing make it an attractive area for young professionals who want to work in the Orlando area and commute along I-4.
