Congratulations to the our Economic Development & Ecological Tourism Sustainability Manager, Jerry Mayes

Earning the Employee of the Year-Economic Enrichment award on May 23, at the 2019 Volusia League of Cities Distinguished Service Awards:

Ecological TourismIt’s very evident when you attend a grand opening in Deltona that businesses are here because of Jerry Mayes. As the City of Deltona’s Economic Development & Ecological Tourism Sustainability Manager, Jerry is in the business of convincing businesses to come to Deltona. It’s because of his persistence that Halifax Health is building a hospital here and Advent Health has built medical facilities here. It was Jerry who made the ‘famous’ call to Halifax Health seeking an opportunity to discuss the development of a much needed hospital in Deltona. Rafael Ramirez, Halifax Health, said “Jerry demonstrates tenacity, but is totally professional and well-informed. His work habits are second to none. He ‘bleeds’ Deltona and is its most loyal employee. Thank God that the City Manager and the City Commission keep changing his mind on retirement. I also warned him I’d stop construction if he retired”

It’s because of Mayes’s persistence with Halifax, Advent Health and others that Deltona will soon have that “lunch crowd,” a much-needed workforce to open the flood gates for restaurants and retail residents are clamoring for. Most of that is already being realized in the Howland Boulevard corridor. Others would have given up, but not Jerry. Mayes is good with residents. We might have a room full of residents not pleased with development, but after Mayes addresses their concerns, they leave happy about Deltona’s growth.

Jerry might be a bit more “green” than the average developer. His failed attempts at becoming a world-renowned turkey hunter, naturally has given him a genuine appreciation for the outdoors. Mayes led the effort in Deltona becoming a Monarch City, a State-designated “Trail Town” and in the Lakeshore/Community Center area becoming a State-designated Trail Head. Plans for the Eco-tourism Village are in the works too! His other plans are for Deltona to become a Pollinator City and a Blueways City, ready for recreational use of water trails as well as reducing and eliminating chemicals that are harmful to pollinators, our food system and the planet. He has a passion for making Deltona an Eco-Tourism destination and has a wonderful vision of how the Lake Monroe/Lakeshore Drive is a key component in Deltona’s economic future.

Jerry Mayes is very active in Volusia County, ensuring that the Deltona message is heard. Through his involvement in many organizations related to economic initiatives like Team Volusia, CEO Business Alliance, Chambers of Commerce, and the Deltona Business Alliance.

Lakeshore Trailhead Event, “Bicycles & Barbeque” May 25th

“The City of Deltona invites the bicycling public to ride the East Central Regional Rail Trail on Saturday May 25th, and stop by the Deltona Community Center between 10:00am and 2:00pm to enjoy good food, and easy listening music.
Admission is free to the event, “Bicycles & Barbeque” which takes place at the Community Center, located at 980 Lakeshore Drive. The Deltona Community Center was recently designated by the State’s Office of Greenways & Trails as an Official Trailhead for the Rail Trail.

For visitors riding bicycles, the Center, on the north shore of Lake Monroe, is easy to reach by bike ride on the new Lakeshore Loop Trail that connects to the Rail Trail at Thornby Park and Green Springs Park. There will be vehicle parking for people bringing their bikes, at Thornby Park on Providence Boulevard and Green Springs Park on Lakeshore Drive.

Food vendors include Jake’s BBQ, and music entertainment will be provided by the group “Two’s Company.” In addition, JC’s Bikes & Boards will be at the event with items for sale, as well as providing bike rentals, repairs and safety checks.

This segment of the Rail Trail is a merge of two larger multi-county trails—the Coast to Coast Connector Trail that goes from St. Petersburg to Titusville, and the St. Johns River2Sea Loop Trail. This trail is also a continuation of the County’s Spring to Spring Trail. The length of the Rail Trail, from DeBary to Osteen is located in one of central Florida’s Nature & Historic Corridor, home to Enterprise, one of the oldest communities in the State.
Guided historic bicycle tour through the community of Enterprise, starting at 10:30am

Guided “family-friendly” paced bicycle ride through Green Springs Park and the Regional Rail Trail, starting at 12:30pm
