Why a Comprehensive Plan?

The comprehensive plan is prepared and adopted pursuant to Chapter 163 Florida  Statutes (F.S.). It is a plan that provides long-range goals, objectives, strategies and policies that focus on the community's vision for the future:

1

There are several topic areas that must be addressed per Florida Statues 163.3177 including Future Land Use, Transportation, Housing, Public Facilities, Natural Resources, Recreation and Open Space, Public School Facilities, Capital Improvements and Economic Development. The Plan will be amended to address internal policy changes and to ensure consistency with State and County regulations. The City last updated the Comprehensive Plan in 2009.

Forwarding our Future

A New Comprehensive Plan for 2040

The update will assess the existing conditions and update data and maps. The process will also involve the public and a variety of stakeholders to develop policies based on current conditions as well as the desired outcomes the community would like to see. Both the Community Development Advisory Board (CDAB) and the City Commission approved the Plan update in creating a more reader-friendly document.
