The land planning for Ormond Crossings dates back to 2002 and represents a significant effort to master plan future development. The area that incorporates Ormond Crossings was platted in the early 1900’s for dense residential lots with the potential of the land being sold off in large parcels within the jurisdiction of the County of Volusia in the early 2000’s. The City Commission and staff worked with the County Council and the property owner, Tomoka Holdings, to annex the property into the City in 2004. One primary purpose of the City’s interest in this property was the ability to establish a commerce park of approximately 1,000 acres that would provide for future economic development opportunities for the residents.
