On April 26, 1867, the community of Port Orange was established on the banks of the Halifax River. Now, some 148 years later, Port Orange is a community of 56,067 people who call this place home.

Planned by choice, not by chance, Port Orange blends beauty and opportunity within its 28 square miles. From its tree-lined streets to its parks, this community is the pride of Volusia County.

This family, which we call Port Orange, is made up of some 150 distinct "neighborhoods". They are the core of this community, making it a great place in which to live, learn, work, and play.

Because of the City's highly regarded development approach, an investment in Port Orange is a secure investment. And so today, as we celebrate our community spirit, we are proud to call Port Orange "our home".

I-95 Design Build Project
This project involves widening Interstate 95 (I-95) from four-lanes to six-lanes from north of State Road (SR) 44 to north of US 92 (International Speedway Boulevard).

The southern project limit will tie into the on-going I-95 widening project to the south (from south of SR 406 to north of SR 44).

This Design Build project also reconstructs the I-95 Interchange leading to and from Interstate 4 (I-4) and US 92 which will increase mobility and connectivity.

It will increase the safety for merging, exiting and through-traffic.

The project will also eliminate a left side merge ramp onto I-95 from US 92, just a short distance to the south.

Citizen Connection 2014 Report & Statistics
On February 3, 2014, the City of Port Orange launched Citizen Connection, a custom built web application that allows the citizens of Port Orange to conveniently notify the City regarding a multitude of issues.

By simply following the link on the City's homepage, residents have the ability to submit a concern to City staff anonymously as well as by creating their own personal account in order to effortlessly follow up on issues they have submitted.

Citizen Connection has been adopted city-wide and has proved to be a valuable tool for staff to expeditiously address the concerns of the community.

During the first 11 months of its existence, 2,447 issues have been addressed and completed through the Citizen Connection system. This level of use is expected to increase in 2015 as more citizens become aware of this convenient and effective way to communicate their concerns to the City.
