Welcome to the City of Arcadia

The City of Arcadia is the county seat for DeSoto County. It is centrally located between Orlando, Ft. Myers; Sarasota and Lake Okeechobee at the crossroads of US 17 and State Route 70.

Arcadia is famous throughout Florida for its historic downtown antique district. Additionally, on the fourth Saturday of each month, vendors from surrounding locations take over our streets with even more wares and precious finds. Tucked between the shops, you'll have the chance to enjoy cafes, home cooking, a tea room and even an old fashion ice cream parlor, complete with homemade delicious flavors, sundaes and shakes.

The Arcadia All-Florida Championship Rodeo is held in March, the Annual Watermelon Festival in May at the height of the harvesting season, and car shows, parades, and special events take place throughout the year.


Roadway and Utility Improvement Project

The City of Arcadia is undertaking a roadway and utility improvement project for two streets within the City. The project limits are 10th Avenue (from East Oak Street to East Maple Street) and Cypress Street (from Hillsborough Avenue to Mills Avenue). Work on the project will begin on March 25th 2019 and continue through approximately December 2019.

The City has obtained grant funding from FDOT for the two road improvement projects through the Small County Outreach Program (SCOP). In adsition to the SCOP funded roadway improvements, and as [art of the same contract, the City of Arcadia is also completing some underground utility improvements. The work includes:

  • Roadway Mill and Resufacing
  • Drainage pipe removal and replacement
  • Driveway and sidewalk construction
  • Utility installation - water and sewer

The roads will be closed, except for local traffic, while the construction proceeds. Alternate access will be provided for anyone whose driveway connects to either street. The water services to homes will be shut off wjile new connections are installed. The contractor will notify each resident prior to shutting off water services.

If residents have questions, concerns or issues, you may contact the City at any time. However you may obtain quicker results if you contact the construction team directly.

A+ Environmental Restoration will be constructing the project. If you need to contact them please feel free to call their offices at 863-513-6554 during the business hours of 8 AM to 4 PM. After hours a Supervisor can be reached at 863-513-6554.
