Sports Council Hosts Daytona Cubs Owner Andy Rayburn
The Chamber’s Daytona Beach Sports Council held the first of four Sports Sanctioning
Body appreciation luncheons in conjunction with the Central Florida Sports Commission. The
luncheon was held on Wednesday, June 22nd and featured Daytona Cubs owner Andy Rayburn.
This effort will be followed by gatherings honoring NASCAR, the Ladies Professional Golf
Association and USTA Florida Section.
Andy spoke to an enthusiastic crowd that heard of his experiences in business, investments,
sports and the Arts. In 2000 he sold his company of 20 years, Flexalloy Inc., and went on to
found Big Game Capital, a private investment company with interests in sports, music, fine
arts, finance, and distribution.
Andy purchased the Daytona Cubs in 2001 following his tenure as owner of the Hagerstown
(MD) Suns of the South Atlantic League. Over the last decade the Cubs have doubled their
yearly attendance, overseen a major renovation to historic Jackie Robinson Ballpark in 2005
and been recognized for many area and national awards, including Baseball America’s
Organization of the Year in 2006 for Single-A.
Also on hand were players and coaches from the Daytona Cubs, in addition to General
Manager Brady Ballard who brought raffle prizes that included Cubs tickets, baseball
equipment and an autographed ball from Chicago Cubs future hall of fame pitcher Greg
Andy Rayburn, owner Daytona Cubs
The Cubs have ranked at or near the League lead in attendance every year since 2004. Daytona has won
Florida State League Championships in 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008, while currently boasting the best record in all of
professional baseball in 2011.
Daytona Beach Sports Council Chairman Bobby Thigpen voiced his enthusiasm with this and future appreciation
luncheons. “We have the distinction of being home to four sports sanctioning bodies in the form of the Florida State
League, USTA Florida Section, the Ladies Professional Golf Association and, of course, NASCAR. It is appropriate that we
recognize these jewels of our community and show our appreciation that they have chosen to locate their headquarters in
The Sports Commission, in partnership with the
Daytona Beach Area CVB, hosted the 2011 Let It

This year the event was held at the Ormond

Eggs & Issues Breakfast Reveals Congresswoman Sandy
Adams is “Hungry” for Change
Speaking to Chamber members at the June Eggs & Issues, Congresswoman Sandy
Adams called President Obama’s economic stimulus recovery a "flop" and that the “federal
government needs to limit future spending”. Adams also mentioned the House Judiciary
Committee’s HJR 1, which proposes a balanced budget amendment (Adams is a co-sponsor).
The national debt stands at over $14 trillion, and deficits continue to increase. This amendment
would ensure the federal government cannot spend more than it takes in. HJR 1 requires a 3/5
House & Senate vote to increase the debt limit and a 2/3 vote to pass a bill to increase revenue.
It’s a strong check on the runaway spending. Adams reiterated her support for
Congressman Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan saying that changes will affect anyone 54 and under.
“Medicare recipients put in approx $109,000 and
receive approx $310,000 worth of services. More
than 10,000 baby boomers are entering the
system each day. The system has to be
reformed to be saved,” Adams stressed.
Additionally, Adams has signed onto a
letter asking NASA Administrator Charles Bolden
to define NASA’s future and the future of the
Space Launch System (SLS). With the halt of
NASA’s human spaceflight program, numerous
layoffs will take place. Some 3,500 of those jobs
will be from Volusia County.

A Letter from the West Volusia Chamber of Commerce
The summer has started off with a bang over here in West Volusia. Our inaugural event of The
Taste of West Volusia was a smashing success in May, with over 500 attending to sample the best
restaurants in our area. Genuine Bistro & Lounge was our first place winner with the most votes!
Bumbino’s was a very close second and Encore Catering in third place. Congratulations to our
winners and all participating vendors. We greatly appreciate the dedicated Chamber Ambassadors
for putting this wonderful event together. They’re already planning for next year and expect it to
be bigger and better!
In June, the West Volusia Regional Chamber hosted a Legislator’s Appreciation Luncheon to thank our regional,
state and federal legislators for their tireless efforts to improve the economic development in our region. Many attended
and enjoyed lunch and an opportunity for Q&A of our representatives. We look forward to this event next year!
July is hot, hot, hot for the West Volusia Regional Chamber of Commerce! We are excited with the launch of our new
website and a major membership drive planned for July. If you haven’t been over to attend one of our many monthly

Members from FEMA , along with local representatives will be on hand to provide the most up to date preparation
information available for you and your family. Details are coming soon and can be found on our website at
We’re looking forward to many exciting upcoming events in August, as well. Most notable is our “West Volusia is
Fertile Ground” Expo which kicks off the Chamber Alliance initiative of the Volusia County “Buy Local” program. We’re
very excited about the West Volusia Regional Chamber of Commerce’s participation in this economic development
program and look forward to continued collaboration with our Chamber Alliance partners.
I’m very proud of the Chamber’s successes, our community, our members and volunteers. Every single day our
focus is on how we can support and grow our local businesses and work to improve the economic development in our
cities. With hard work and dedication, we continue to make great strides to ensure that we are consistently making a positive
impact in our area.
Many special thanks to the Daytona Chamber of Commerce for their continued partnership, support and
collaboration to make Volusia County “The Great American Destination”.

The E-zone is a Hot Topic
On June 15, the Local Government Committee met
with City Manager Jim Chisholm to discuss the E-Zone. The
intent of the E-Zone is to provide a walkable retail and
entertainment district, active throughout the year. The
E-Zone’s focal point is the area around the Main Street and
The plan also maintains the city’s existing standing
as an event city and seeks to help the Ocean Center
compete to attract corporate events.
Daytona Beach City Manager, Jim Chisolm discusses the E-Zone
Chisholm said AECOM consultants have compiled a
400 page, $320,000 report that proposes new hotels, greenspace, artificial reef, an expanded pier, a new
Halifax River marina, new restaurants, a motor sports museum, a new Main Street bridge with a multi-use trail
underpass, and fountains. “It is a long range plan that could take 20 years to come to fruition,” he stated.
The plan would seek to build occupancy for hotel rooms in the vicinity, convert Main Street back into a
varied mix of businesses opened year-round, increase beachside homeownership and create a year-round
destination for locals and tourists.
AECOM’s report offers a full menu of financing options for various projects including grants, property
and sales tax increases, meal taxes, development fees, public-private partnerships, tax-exempt bonds, the
countywide room tax, a special assessment district in the retail and hotel corridor, a storm water user fee, tax
increment financing, public space rentals and special event parking fees.
Parking should be distributed throughout the district and be convenient, bringing motorists close to
their desired destination so they can park and walk among historic landmarks that would be protected.
In addition, Chisholm stated that negotiations are continuing with Joe’s Crab Shack for the Main St pier.
The Daytona Regional Chamber supports the City’s pursuit of the E-Zone, which includes the Ocean Center,
and adequate parking and quality hotel rooms in the Main Street area.

YPG Local Government Committee Invites YOU
to Attend Third Annual Local Government Fair
Guest Editorial by Maja Sander
President Daytona BeachYPG
In its third year now, the YPG Local Government Committee (LGC) remains committed to
encouraging young professionals to get involved in local government. In 2008, YPG started the
LGC after noticing a gap in the involvement of young professionals in local government affairs.
Since that time, YPG has had a wonderful response from YPG Members and great support from
the community. Numerous YPG Members now serve on municipal community service boards and
others have successfully run for office, including City Commissions, throughout our community.
To further educate YPG Members and others in Volusia County, YPG, in partnership with
Daytona State College, is hosting the Third Annual Local Government Fair on Monday, August 8,
2011 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the News-Journal Center. The 2011 Fair will provide a forum
for individuals to learn about local government opportunities. It will spotlight YPG Members who
have become involved in local government. So mark your calendars for this great event!
YPG is not a political organization and does not take a political stance on matters, with the
rare exception of those matters that directly affect the mission of YPG. Instead, the charge of the
LGC is to encourage young professionals to realize that local government is accessible and that
involvement is the key to effectuating the changes they want to see in their community. YPG also
advocates that involvement does indeed make a difference, especially at the local level where
government action often has the most immediate effect on our everyday lives.
Don’t forget to check out our newly redesigned website at www.daytonaypg.com to learn more
about YPG and upcoming events and to sign up to be a YPG Member.
Please contact Maja Sander at Maja.Sander@cobbcole.com for information about YPG, the LGC,
or to RSVP for the Fair.

Congratulations to New Smyrna Beach Mayor Adam Barringer and VCARD
Executive Council Member Cathy Vogel, The Catalina Group. They were honored
as VCARD’s “Citizen Of The Year” and “Member Of The Year” respectively at
VCARD’s annual awards banquet and Roaring Twenties casino night last
Thursday, June 16.
The event also honored VCARD chairman for the past two years, R. Sans Lassiter, Lassiter Transportation
Group and welcomed new officers and executive council members.
The “Citizen Of The Year” award recognized Mayor Barringer for his efforts to promote quality community
growth, economic development and redevelopment within New Smyrna Beach. Since being elected less than two
years ago, he has become a progressive community leader – helping to facilitate improvements to infrastructure,
city facilities, business, downtown redevelopment and neighborhood revitalization.
Mayor Barringer has been instrumental in building professional relationships with Volusia County
government, which has led to greater cooperation between the two entities. He also is a respected businessman
in Southeast Volusia County, owner of SoNapa Wine Company; and was honored by the Boy Scouts last year at
their Golden Eagle dinner.
“Member Of The Year” award winner Cathy Vogel is a water resource consultant, known and respected
throughout Florida for her knowledge about issues relating to water supply planning, conservation and regulation.
Since joining VCARD several years ago, she has been invaluable to VCARD members and local governments,
keeping us constantly updated on water resource topics – especially the pending numeric nutrient runoff standards
being imposed on Florida waterways by the federal Environmental Protection Agency.
VCARD / FCARD Officers and Executive / Emeritus Council members also were feted and installed by
Florida State Representative, District 26, Fred Costello. New officers are Chair Mark Watts, Cobb Cole; Immediate
Past Chair Sans Lassiter, Lassiter Transportation Group; Chair-Elect Shannon Ruby Julien, Environmental Services,
Inc.; Vice Chair Shailesh Patel, Dredging & Marine Consultants; Vice Chair, Flagler County Chapter
(FCARD), Charles Faulkner, Faulkner & Associates; Treasurer Ron Nowviskie; and Secretary Kimberly A. Buck,

The purpose of our Bi-Annual InterCity visit is to meet with key business leaders,
elected officials, and talent, in other communities that are facing similar issues. We strive to
learn and bring back sensible, implementable solutions to make the Daytona Region thrive
and prosper. Our selection for 2011 is Greater Kansas City, MO, and it promises to be an
unforgettable experience. We will be traveling to Kansas City from September 12-14. In
doing our research and analysis, we found that Kansas City is using their civic center (Bartle
Hall Convention Center) at the core of their EZone, called the Power and Light District to
revitalize the city. The Kansas City Downtown Corridor Strategy (Sasaki Plan) – is a
comprehensive master plan for revitalization and they have used it to commit themselves to
urban revitalization, historic preservation and infill development. They believe the Central Library Project is a catalyst for
downtown activity, as well as the Historic City Market. How does this compare to Daytona’s EZone with the newly expanded
Ocean Center as its anchor? What should we do with Main Street? Parking? What about the Library on City Island? What
about the Farmers Market in the parking lot at City Island? Are we maximizing opportunities?
Nearby is 39th Street Restaurant Row. A short five minutes from the Power and Light District, 39th street is an eclectic
mix of independent businesses, restaurants, and coffee shops. Frequent Art exhibits and lively street fairs make this an exciting
urban living environment. As part of a Community Improvement
District, does this sound like a model for Downtown Daytona
Beach, Downtown DeLand or Downtown Ormond?
Getting around in Kansas City is done through a rapid
transit bus system, and trolleys. Visit Country Club Plaza, the
country’s first “lifestyle center” and you will see first hand what it
means to live in a livable, walkable community. Parking is discreetly
hidden behind buildings or in multilevel decks under buildings. Do
we have the opportunity to properly plan parking behind the shops
in downtown or in discreet areas beachside? Imagine what we
might do to redesign local zoning regulations in any and all of our
cities to create “special places” with “special experiences”. Has
Transit Oriented Development (TOD) actually spurred economic

Be a Part of the Change: Join the Chamber in
storied past, we haven’t done as well as Kansas City in telling our story
and preserving our past. What exactly is our brand? Are we defining
our events or do our events define us? Will music be a part of our
culture as it is there?
Recently Kansas City premiered the Next American Dream. It’s been
shown multiple times in Volusia County. We will meet the people
behind the message. Branding will make sense like never before.
Did you know Kansas City, in partnership with our own ISC, is
constructing a new $361.8 million Casino next to Kansas City
Speedway. Future plans call for a hotel. That’s economic
development. Are you aware the Kansas City Area Development
Council, representing two states, 18 counties has implemented a
www.thinkkc.com strategy for Young Professionals and talent
recruitment? Why? Maybe because companies are locating and
expanding where the talent is located – the number 1 criteria according
to site selection experts. What is our strategy with young
professionals? Can we learn from the “thinkkc” model?
