On October 29, 2013 the City issued a Notice to Proceed to Sparks Concrete, LLC. to construct a six foot wide sidewalk on the west side of Old County Road from West Ocean Avenue to Edgewater Elementary and on the north side of West Turgot Avenue from U. S. 1 to the cul-de-sac.
This project is funded by a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from Volusia County and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Please be patient while driving within the designated project areas as one lane of traffic may be closed during construction. If needed directional signage will be provided.
The tentative construction schedule is as follows (dates are subject to change):
In 2003, Edgewater Fire-Rescue, in conjunction with the Edgewater Fire-Rescue Association, began to expand the Operation Caring program. For many years, both organizations had been active in providing food and toys to children and families during the holiday season through the Operation Santa program. Fire Chief Stephen Cousins describes Operation Caring as “a year round program which will include providing assistance to residents and visitors who may be devastated by a crisis.” Again this year that “crisis” can include a family that is not able to provide Christmas gifts or a holiday meal for their loved ones.
Donations of new clothes, gift cards for teens and new, unwrapped toys are being accepted at Station 55 (1605 South Ridgewood Avenue), Station 57 (2628 Hibiscus Drive) and City Hall (104 North Riverside Drive). There is also a need for non-perishable food and personal care items. Monetary donations are accepted as well – checks can be made Edgewater Fire-Rescue Association (EFRA). Donations of food, toys and money will be accepted without deadline. All of these items will be distributed to people in the Edgewater area.
Signups for assistance will be held at the Edgewater Fire Rescue Association Fire Hall (2616 Hibiscus Drive) on November 21st and December 5th from 12:00 PM until 1:30 PM. On December 9th sign ups will be from 12:00 PM until 1:30 PM and from 6:00 PM until 7:30 PM. Applicants must provide the following: for children – birth certificate and Social Security card and for adults – Social Security card, picture ID, proof of income and proof of residence. In order to be eligible to receive assistance, the applicant/family must reside in Edgewater.
For more information, please call 386-424-2445.
The 23rd Annual Edgewater Christmas Parade will begin at the old landfill site on Air Park Road. The parade will go east down Indian River Boulevard to the Winn Dixie Shopping Plaza. Entry forms can be picked up at the Leisure Service Office at 1108 S. Ridgewood Ave. No entry fee is required.
There is no central theme for the parade – all entries are based on originality.
