    Palm Coast

    Palm Coast is a city in Flagler County, Florida, United States. The population was 32,732 at the 2000 census. As of 2004, the population recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau is 44,427. Palm Coast has been growing at a phenomenal rate, due to both immigration and annexation, so the population as of 2006 is probably pushing 60,000.


    History


    Palm Coast is situated in the eastern portion of Flagler County, which is located on the Atlantic Ocean, in the heart of Northeast Florida, equidistant between the cities of Jacksonville and Orlando. Currently, the City of Palm Coast has a population of 60,000 residents and covers an area of approximately 60 square miles.


    Industrial parks within the city currently house more than 30 mid to large size businesses with the largest corporation, Palm Coast Data, employing close to 1,000 people. Flagler County has had one of the highest rates of population growth in the United States since 1990, according to the U.S. Bureau of the Census. Further, the University of Florida's Bureau of Economic and Business Research predicts Flagler County will experience one of the highest job growth rates in Florida between 1995 and 2010.


    Developed by ITT Corporation in 1969, the original development plan encompasses 48,000 home sites on approximately 42,000 acres (160 km²) of the 68,000 acres (280 km²) owned by ITT. Paved street and central water and sewer serve all lots developed within the plan. An extensive water management system was designed to replenish the area's water table, which includes 46 miles of freshwater canals and 23 miles of saltwater canals.


    In 1975, the Flagler County Board of County Commissioners established Palm Coast Service District, which included almost 40,000 acres (160 km²). Funds for the district were derived primarily from ad Valorem taxes and were utilized to provide fire services, fire hydrants, street lighting, animal control and emergency services.


    In September 1999, the citizenry of Palm Coast voted overwhelmingly by a margin of two to one to incorporate as a council/manager form of government. On December 31, 1999, the City of Palm Coast was officially incorporated. On October 1, 2000, all services were officially transferred from the former Service District to the City of Palm Coast. The five-member City Council is elected at large and serves staggered four-year terms. One member is elected as Mayor. The promulgation and adoption of policy are the responsibility of the Council and the execution of such policy is the responsibility of the council appointed city manager. The city hired its first city manager on April 17, 2000.


    The city provides a wide range of services including development services, fire services, street construction and maintenance, parks and recreational activities. Palm Coast contracts with the Flagler County Sheriff's Office for law enforcement services. The city currently has plans under way for a new City Hall, a town center, new fire stations, and additional lands for parks. Preservation and protection of environmentally sensitive lands is a key goal of this city as it prepares for the future.

    Daytona Beach

    Daytona Beach is a city in Volusia County,  Florida, USA. As of 2004, the population estimates recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau is 64,422. Daytona Beach is a year-round resort area, and home to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Bethune-Cookman College, Daytona Beach Community College, and Keiser College Daytona Beach Campus. The city is also home to the Daytona Cubs, a minor league baseball team of the Florida State League.

    Daytona Beach is well-known for its beaches. It is one of the few places in the world where a family car can be driven on an ocean beach. Most other driving beaches require 4 wheel drive or other special equipment.

    In the past Daytona Beach catered to spring breakers, but in recent years many of the breakers have migrated to other sites.

    As host of the Daytona 500, the opening race of the NASCAR Nextel Cup season, Daytona Beach caters to almost 200,000 visitors during Speed Weeks in early February.

    "The World's Most Famous Beach"

    The city and its beaches, lined with hotels, motels, condominiums and houses, attract over 8,000,000 tourists each year. In a wide variety of price ranges, hotel and motel rooms are typically plentiful except during special events. Daytona Beach has high security around its main hotel locations, with multiple cameras filming hotel and beach areas.

    During motorcycle events (Bike Week and Biketoberfest), several hundred thousand bikers from all over the world visit the greater Daytona Beach area. While the city is often associated with Spring Break, the efforts of the local government to discourage rowdiness, combined with the rise of other Spring Break destinations, have nearly ended Daytona's former preeminence as a Spring Break destination. Indeed, so few students (relative to past years) have come since 2002 that officials stopped estimating their numbers.

    Special events that draw visitors to Daytona Beach include:

    • Speedweeks (Daytona 500 NASCAR race, Rolex 24 sports car race, and others)
    • Pepsi 400 NASCAR race on or around July 4 (Traditionally called the Firecracker 400)
    • Daytona Beach Bike Week Daytona 200 motorcycle race in March
    • Biketoberfest in October
    • Turkey Run car show and events during Thanksgiving weekend (Traditionally called the Turkey Rod Run)
    • Black College Reunion (BCR) date varies
    • Spring break date varies

    Daytona Beach is also home to the headquarters of the LPGA.

    History - The area was once inhabited by the Timucuan Indians, who lived in fortified villages. War and disease, however, would decimate the tribe. Florida was acquired from Spain by the United States in 1821, although permanent settlement was delayed until after the Second Seminole War from 1835 to 1842. When the Civil War ended, Florida experienced a boom in tourism.

     

    The city was founded in 1870 and incorporated in 1876. It was named for its founder, Matthias Day. In 1886, the St. Johns & Halifax River Railway arrived in Daytona. The line would be purchased in 1889 by Henry Flagler, who made it part of his Florida East Coast Railway. The separate towns of Daytona, Daytona Beach and "Seabreeze" merged as "Daytona Beach" in 1926, at the urging of civic leader J.B. Kahn and others. By the 1920s, it was dubbed "The World's Most Famous Beach."

    Daytona's wide beach of smooth, compacted sand attracted automobile and motorcycle races beginning in 1902, as pioneers in the industry tested their inventions. The area would be nicknamed "The Birthplace of Speed." On March 8, 1936, the first stock car race was held on the Daytona Beach Road Course. In 1959, William France created Daytona International Speedway to replace the beach course. Automobiles are still permitted on the beach, although now only at slow speeds.

    Culture - Daytona Beach is located roughly at the southern end of the cultural South, so its culture has remained somewhat Southern, but due to mass migration from Northern states, it is in many ways more similar to South Florida. It should be noted however that South Florida has a major Hispanic influence, which is not as prevalent in Central Florida. Its Southern heritage cannot be completely forgotten however, thanks to the presence of NASCAR.

    The architecture and style of its older homes and buildings and the culture and speech of its older, locally-born inhabitants leaves no doubt as to its cultural roots.

    Daytona Beach has often been viewed as a party town. It has been a traditional destination for people who want to drink and get rowdy. There are still very strong remnants of the party culture, but in recent years the local government has made somewhat successful efforts to clean up Daytona Beach's rough, honky-tonk image and turn it into a more family-friendly beach destination
