ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Duke Energy has completed the evaluation of the Deltona Commerce Park through the company's Site Readiness Program.

During a recent public meeting with the Deltona City Commission Workshop, Volusia County officials and other community leaders, Duke Energy provided a detailed report about the site's viability and recommendations for improvement.

"The conclusion of the Site Readiness Program is just the beginning of our commitment to the area," said Alex Glenn, Duke Energy state president - Florida. "Duke Energy is committed to the City of Deltona and Volusia County for the long term. In addition to serving the site, we will continue our work to attract new industry and jobs to the area."

The 263-acre Deltona Commerce Park is the second Florida site in the Duke Energy Site Readiness Program, which helps advance prime sites for further development opportunities.

Over the past 5 months, Duke Energy in conjunction with Team Volusia EDC arranged for McCallum Sweeney Consulting, a nationally recognized site selection consultant, to conduct an initial site assessment beginning with an in-depth meeting and tour with local economic development officials. A separate engineering firm, HRP Associates, completed a buildable study and conceptual plan.  

"The presentation and proposed plan by Duke Energy and McCallum Sweeney Consulting was a valuable asset in our planning for the area," said City of Deltona Mayor, John Masiarczyk. "The program is a true testament to our partnership with Duke Energy as we move Deltona forward with economic development."

The detailed report recently presented to local officials included a technical review outlining strengths, weaknesses and recommendations for next steps. "The Deltona Commerce Park is one of the few remaining high, dry, large developable parcels in Florida with interstate frontage," remarked Mark Sweeney, principal of McCallum Sweeney Consulting.

The report also included a marketing evaluation and recommendations for target industries. Among them were advanced materials, aerospace, plastics, logistics/distribution and general machinery.
