Planning & Zoning Division

The Planning and Zoning Division oversees the review of development applications, including site plans, annexations, rezonings, conditional uses, temporary use applications, sidewalk waivers, and Future Land Use map amendments.



The Planning and Zoning Division chairs the city's Technical Review Committee (TRC) which reviews development applications for consistency with the Comprehensive Plan, Downtown Master Plan, Florida Fire Code, and the Comprehensive Zoning and Land Development Code (LDC). TRC members include staff from Engineering, Fire, Planning, Public Works, and the City Arborist.



Development Applications

Development applications may be submitted to the Planning Division any time that City Hall is open. A link to the application forms page is below:

The review schedules are different depending on the type of development application. After your application is submitted, a case planner will contact you to provide a schedule for the review.
