Deep Creek is one small part of 59,000 acres Miami Corp. owns in southern Volusia and northern Brevard counties. The company wants to change its authorized land uses and secure long-term development rights for 25,000 homes and 4 million square feet of non-residential space on about 19,000 acres. In exchange, the company will conserve about 40,000 acres, including two large swamps and the corridor along Deep Creek. The 1,140 acres will become the Deep Creek Conservation Area.
