RESOURCES

To assist you in your study and preparation for the upcoming community workshops, discussion will focus on specific updates to the Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations.

Comprehensive Plan: [LINK]

The Comprehensive Plan is currently organized into fourteen (14) Chapters, otherwise known as Elements. Each Element is further subdivided into specific Issues, followed by related Objectives and Policies. During the community workshops, specific Elements will be considered for update using the StPete2050 community themes and goals articulated by the community through the StPete2050 outreach process.

Land Development Regulations: [LINK]

Chapter 16 of the City Code is formally known as the Land Development Regulations (LDRs). The LDRs effectively implement the Comprehensive Plan’s IssuesObjectives, and Policies. The LDRs in their current form became effective on September 10, 2007, and have since been modified periodically to stay current with evolving community preferences and to resolve minor inconsistencies, improve clarity of understanding and respond to changes in local, state and federal law.     

The community is an important part of this process and we want to hear from as many people as possible, so please share this information with your family, friends, and neighbors.
