2015 proposed budget
November 18, 2014
Halifax Plantation Clubhouse:
A thank you to every homeowner who e-mailed the Volusia County Council members requesting that Halifax Plantation Phase 1 be added to the list of roads to be resurfaced in 2015.
A special thanks to Otis Stigler for spearheading this effort.
Below is Mr. Brinton's explanation as to why Volusia County is not including HPP1 in its road resurfacing plan for 2015.

Dear Halifax Plantation Resident,
Council Member Daniels has asked that I reply to your inquiry regarding adding the streets in Halifax Plantation onto our annual resurfacing program. I have asked my staff to visually inspect and re-evaluate the condition of the streets as compared to the previous evaluation conducted several years ago at the request of residents. Our findings indicate that the streets like so many other subdivision streets throughout the county are quite worn looking in appearance with typical block cracking characteristic of a soil-cement base beneath the asphalt. The structural conditions, however, are fine and our records do not reflect the streets having needed an above average level of routine maintenance repairs such as filling pot holes.
The financial situation regarding funding our continual maintenance needs as well as any new capital improvements continue to be very bleak. As you may imagine with asphalt prices (being petroleum based) having skyrocketed in recent years and with people driving less our gas tax revenues have declined dramatically. Unfortunately, this means fewer roads can be resurfaced in a timely manner. County roads that we are identifying to be resurfaced first are those that are of most dire need. Besides assessment of the existing pavement condition, two key factors in prioritizing roads to be resurfaced are traffic volumes and the likelihood of damage to the structural foundation if not resurfaced . Keeping our arterials and collector roads in good condition is our top priority because they are traveled the most and at higher speeds.
I wish I could offer you better news. Please be assured that we have seriously evaluated the streets in your subdivision and are trying our best to equitably address all the resurfacing needs in the county with the very limited funds available.
Please feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com or call my cell phone at 878-5020 if you would like to discuss this further.
Gerald N. Brinton, P.E.
Director of Engineering & Construction
