News & Announcements


Over the period of five years, nearly 36,000 new residents moved to Volusia County. Nearly half of these individuals were coming from another county within the state of Florida. And according to the University of Florida's Bureau of Economic and Business Research (BEBR), the state of Florida and its 67 counties will continue to show growth year-over-year.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) are working with the Taproot Agency, a research and creative firm, to develop a program that focuses on increasing the use of Low Impact Development and Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ at the community level. This program will support local government personnel, builders, developers, and other community leaders

Our Mission


The Volusia County Association for Responsible Development and its Flagler County chapter (VCARD) is a unique not-for-profit comprised of land development professionals. VCARD's mission is to be a forum for collaboration in all aspects of land development, and to provide programs that further the idea of responsible development in Volusia and Flagler Counties.

Upcoming Events


Please join VCARD for a Holiday Outdoor Social. This is a free event, but will be a cash bar only with no drink tickets provided. Also, we will be accepting cash, check or credit card donations for STEM toys for the Salvation Army.
