In the second meeting of 2014, The Ormond Beach City Commission voted to create a resolution supporting the Halifax Heritage Byway.

The commission designated portions of State Road A1A as well as North Beach Street from the southern city limit north to West Granada Boulevard as a Florida Scenic Highway.

The purpose of the scenic highway designation is to protect, enhance, preserve and maintain the intrinsic resources of the designated corridor while utilizing these resources for appropriate economic development, recreation and tourism.

Other municipalities have also joined in to make the historic byway a 35-mile long corridor in eastern Volusia County.

In 2009, then Ormond Beach Mayor Fred Costello sent a letter to the Scenic/Historic Highway Coordinator at the Florida Department of Transportation stating the support of Ormond Beach for this designation.

In an interview, Ric Goss, Ormond Beach Planning Director, said Halifax Heritage Byway Corridor Management requested more than a letter to send to the Florida DOT in support of this designation.

"They just wanted a resolution," according to Mr. Goss.

The resolution was passed unanimously by the commissioners.
