Homes by Deltona and the Washington County Chamber of Commerce held a community celebration Thursday, June 6, promoting new residencies in the Sunny Hills area.

Fifty homes have been built. They are concrete block structures with designer LED lighting, deluxe painted cabinets, energy efficient multi-cycle dishwasher, and granite counter tops–among other features.

Production Manager Jason Lee said they have been at Sunny Hills for two years.

“In that time, we’ve got fifty quality block homes on the ground,” Lee said. “Also during that two years, we’ve invested over half a million dollars into the Sunny Hills community–from the dumpsters out at the golf course to help the locals with the trash and debris to over 350 dump sites that we’ve cleaned up over the last year in Sunny Hills.”

Homes by Deltona has established a “great working relationship” with the Washington County Municipal Services Benefit Unit (MSBU) and County government.

“We just recently got the entrance back and, if you noticed, we’re doing revamps to it,” Lee said. “Updating it but keeping its original beauty. And that’s allowed the MSBU to reallocate funds to other parts of the community.” 

Most of Homes by Deltona’s staff lives in the area and is “here to stay,” Lee said. 

“We’re working with commercial ideas to bring some amenities here to Sunny Hills,” Lee said. “(County Administrator Jeff Massey) and I have worked together, talked together. We’re working on some things, along with other entities.”

Chamber President Cindy Birge said Deltona has “such a wonderful construction.”

“They have been invested in our community,” Birge said.

The dump sites being cleaned up is “a very big deal” because “code enforcement in Washington County cannot cover enough ground,” Birge said. 

Attendees got to tour some of the homes after the ceremony.
