Honorable Mayor, City Council, and Residents of the City of Titusville:
 
It is my pleasure to present you with this Fiscal Year 2018 annual report, which provides you with a snapshot of our city and highlights activities and accomplishments over the past year. 

FY 2018 was a year of steady growth and improvement of nearly all economic indicators throughout the City of Titusville. Several manufacturing organizations have located or expanded their operations, among them are Paragon Plastics, Blue Origin, OneWeb Satellites, RUAG Space USA, Lockheed Martin, and Astro Pak.  Tourism and recreation have also seen significant growth with our Welcome Center averaging over a thousand visitors a month. Titusville was designated as a Florida official “Trail Town” and is the central hub for three state-wide bicycle and non-motorized vehicle trails. There are three new hotels which have been completed or are under construction, with additional properties under development consideration, to help accommodate the expected influx of recreational tourists, space rocket launch visitors and eco-tourists. Lastly, residential construction is hitting record levels not seen since the pre-2008 recession. The housing market in Titusville is steadily recovering, with property values continuing to rise approximately 6% per year. Our local economy continues a steady recovery with our unemployment rate dropping below 4%. 

Our city finances are beginning to stabilize after years of nominal growth. With this anticipated growth we look forward to addressing our long list of deferred city infrastructure projects. We continue with our road-resurfacing program that services a minimum of 6 miles of road per year. Titusville is also doing our part to help with the restoration of the Indian River Lagoon with multiple projects. We are upgrading the Osprey Water Reclamation Facility, assisting with the septic system conversion
to the City sewer system in select areas, and are in the process of engineering and installing six 2nd generation nutrient separating baffle boxes for the Main Street, South Street, Sycamore, St. Teresa, LaPaloma and Knox McRae basins.  

For several years now, city employees have been trained to use LEAN process improvement, finding ways to deliver efficient and exceptional service to our citizens. LEAN fundamentals are now embedded within our workforce culture.

With a talented and dedicated municipal workforce, and the continued support of our Mayor and City Council, I am confident that our future is bright and that 2019 will be another year of the continued resurgence of Titusville as the Gateway to Nature
and Space.
