Ormond Beach Shines!

State of the City 2022

Ormond Beach is known for our charming coastline, our vibrant downtown, and the tight-knit group of friends and neighbors who make this unique oasis home. It is a proud moment when one of our new restaurants gets rave reviews for fantastic cuisine and when young people come back to our city for well-paying jobs and the opportunity to raise their families in the hometown they adore.


The labor force continues to grow. The unemployment rate has fallen to just 2.6% as of July 2022. Since January of this year more than 710 jobs were added to our economy. This economic indicator demonstrates that this year was a time to shine, as many companies continued their success and the path to gainful employment in our City was strong.


Ormond Beach is on a great path with its thriving businesses and bright future. As the sparkling city by the sea and the Crown Jewel of Volusia County, Ormond Beach truly SHINES!
