Fox 35 reported earlier that there has been a renewed effort for an old proposal to bring a casino and horse track to Volusia County. Back in 2008, a 70-acre development along U.S. Highway 17-92 was presented to the city of DeBary, FL. According to reports, the development would have included a horse racetrack, a card room and new hotel. Proponents of DeBary Downs argued that it would have brought additional tourism and dollars to the community, but at the time it was met with fierce opposition. We will see what the new vigor behind the proposal will lead to.
