June 22nd, 2021 -- Daytona Dog Beach, Inc. Board of Directors attended the Volusia County Council meeting representing our organization and members of Daytona Dog Beach, Inc. Our goal was to seek council’s approval on an option to expand dog friendly beach access on Volusia County beaches, and our desire and willingness to partner with them to make additional dog beaches successful. Unfortunately we are sorry to report that the Volusia County Council voted 5-1 to continue their ban of dogs on the beach. We lost this battle, but please keep hopeful, our fight continues. We will issue more in the days ahead about our next steps. In the meantime, We encourage you to express your feelings about their disappointing decision by email or mail, as you feel appropriate. Jeff Brower was the only who wanted to find a solution that would offer us an opportunity to at least offer a trial period. He suggested our proposed site, between University Boulevard and Zelda Avenue as an option worthy of consideration.
