Tim Grigsby for Ormond Beach Commission Zone 1
Tim has lived at Overbrook Drive in Ormond Beach for over 28 years.
He is married to wife Natalie for 47 years and has two daughters who attended local schools and two wonderful grandchildren, who are following in his path, loving nature, and protecting our environment.
Tim is employed by local Engineering & Surveying firm McKim & Creed, where he has worked for 34 years, currently in the role of Lidar Project Manager.
Over the years he served clients including FDOT, Duke Power, FP&L, Lockheed Martin, Universal Studios, Volusia County, Flagler County, Palm Coast, Daytona Beach, and Ormond Beach just to name a few.
Tim has worked on many projects for the City of Ormond Beach and other clients, including historic building and structure restorations, power substation, and transmission projects and has gained extensive knowledge of our infrastructure, storm water, water/wastewater/reuse treatment plants and transmission lines, roads, streets, and sidewalks.
He holds an Associate degree in computer networking from Daytona College and is an FAA Certified Remote Pilot.
Tim is a member of many local environmental and quality of life groups, including Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, Ormond Historical Society, 1000 Friends of Florida, Friends of Tomoka Basin, Friends of Tomoka State Park, Trout Unlimited, Ducks Unlimited, North Florida Land Trust and others. He represents Volusia County District 4 as a voting member of the FDOT sponsored transportation group, River to Sea, Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) where he reviews plans and project funding including trails and bike paths with a goal of elimination bicyclist and pedestrian accidents and fatalities in Volusia County and Ormond Beach.
He has been involved with grassroots groups in efforts to Protect Ormond Loop, Ormond Union Church, and Citizens against Runway Extensions (CARE).
Tim is very passionate about protecting our environment, keeping our waterways clean and protecting our water supply and quality of life issues. While watching local politics for many years he has observed that political action committees, bundlers, developers, and wealthy business interest have kept a tight grip on our city planning board and commissioners by heavily funding their election and reelection with the goal of continuing development and overdevelopment in their interest.
Tim is uniquely qualified to be commissioner because of his knowledge of the issues, experience in local infrastructure surveying and engineering, love for the environment, public safety concerns and desire for open and transparent city government.
If we have any chance of seeing change and saving our city, we must support and elect grassroots candidates who will vote in the interest of average citizens and stop this overdevelopment that is destroying our quality of life and our environment.
When Tim signed on to run for Zone 1, he pledged to take no donations from these developers and special interest. If you donate to Tim, the check must have a real person’s name on it.
