BEST Places to Work 2019

LTG recognizes that our employees are our greatest asset and having staff who enjoy coming to work each day is a sign of a healthy workplace culture. We are happy to announce that LTG was recently recognized as a “Best Places to Work” award honoree by the Daytona Beach News-Journal for our commitment to our employees.

The selection was based on several factors, including health benefits, when a new employee is eligible to receive them and what percentage of the healthcare premium is paid by the company. Also considered, was if an employee benefit retirement plan is offered, how many sick days an employee can take per year and what the company does to encourage employee wellness.

LTG offers excellent opportunities and professional growth as well as a competitive salary and benefits package which includes health, dental, vision, life and AD&D insurance, short-term and long-term disability insurance, 401(k) plan, paid vacation time, sick time and 10 paid holidays.

LTG Presents Citywide Master Plan for Palm Coast Streetlights at City Council Workshop

Palm Coast residents have been asking city leaders to install more streetlights along major roads throughout the city to improve safetyOn the City’s November 13th workshop, LTG’s Vice President Gil Ramirez presented a draft of the master plan.  LTG used several different standards, such as traffic volume, posted speed limits, crash rates at night and the presence of sidewalks, to rank the benefit of lighting the city’s arterial and collector roads. They then prioritized the roads where street lighting is most beneficial according to those rankings. 

LTG was contracted by the City of Palm Coast to develop a citywide master plan which provides a priority list and schedule for deployment of streetlights throughout the city’s major roadways. LTG has also provided the City with plans for deployment of streetlights for segments of Belle Terre Parkway and Lakeview Boulevard, the first two roads on the priority list.  The design plans for Lakeview Boulevard are complete and Florida Power and Light (FP&L) has provided a construction schedule.  The City is now coordinating with LTG and FP&L to review the plans and schedule the most critical segments of Belle Terre Parkway.

LTG sponsors VCARD Coastal Cleanup

LTG is a proud sponsor of the 2018 Costal Cleanup. Volusia County Association for Responsible Development (VCARD) volunteered at a coastal cleanup collecting 995 pounds of trash together with other volunteers around Daytona’s City Island. Immediately following, all volunteers enjoyed a fiesta at Cocina 214 compliments of sponsors LTG, Inc. and Dredging & Marine Consultants.

International Coastal Cleanup Day (ICCD), is one of the world’s largest annual preservation and protection events and volunteer efforts for our ocean, waves and beaches.

It is a global movement that encompasses 6 million volunteers in 90 countries and across the United States. Local chapters engage and motivate their communities to take action at local beach cleanups. The cumulative result is not only a cleaner and healthier coastline but also a raised consciousness for accessible actions people can integrate into their lives to promote healthy beaches on a daily basis.

Some of the top five most commonly collected items on ICCD last year were cigarette butts, plastic beverage bottles, food wrappers, plastic bottle caps and plastic straws, respectively. All are forms of plastic debris.  The very qualities that make plastic an adaptable and durable product to use, also make it an environmental nightmare. Plastics do not biodegrade. Instead they break down with exposure to weather and the sun’s ultraviolet rays into smaller and smaller pieces. When these pieces infiltrate the environment, especially marine environments, they wreak havoc on wildlife and the ecosystem.

Celebrate National PARK(ing) Day with LTG


LTG and local groups hope to educate about urban revitalization through national event

Join us on September 21st, 2018 for National PARK(ing) Day! The event will be in downtown Daytona Beach on the Beach Street in a collaborative effort between the City, downtown redeveloper Jack White Land Co., engineering and planning firm LTG, Inc., the Surf Coast Chapter of the Florida Planning and Zoning Association (FPZA), and the Atlantic Coast Section of American Planning Association (APA). There will be a series of Parklet installations outside your favorite Beach Street restaurants and shops with activities for all ages.

What are Parklets and what is Park(ing) Day?

PARK(ing) Day is an annual event that encourages community members, students, and designers to transform metered parking spaces into temporary parklets. The concept started in a parking space in San Francisco. A few friends staged an impromptu park installation with a lawn, tree, park bench, and fence; maintained by feeding quarters into the meter. Essentially, a Parklet is an extension of the sidewalk into on-street parking spaces to create more people-oriented places. This is often done by introducing seating, planting, bicycle parking, or other elements of play and activity. The goal is to improve public spaces by adding opportunities for people to interact more with their surrounding community, and to reinvent our often vehicle-oriented cities.

National PARK(ing) Day celebrates this through an annual event in which community members, businesses, students, and designers are encouraged to be as creative as possible in transforming on-street parking spaces into temporary parklets. Join us from 11 AM to 5 PM to learn about parklets, trending urban design techniques, community revitalization projects, and to experience Daytona Beach’s PARK(ing) Day!
