Comprehensive Planning

The Comprehensive Planning Section regulates orderly expansion through long-range planning activities and studying established uses to ensure continued benefit.

The Comprehensive Plan provides guidance for development over the next 20 years, decision-making for short-term land use, and regulations preparation.

Review our newly adopted Parks Master Plan, which will also by reference become part of the adopted Comprehensive Plan.

Land Development

The Land Development Section provides information on the site development approval process, analyzes requests to ensure compliance with Land Development Regulations, and makes recommendations on development proposals, special exceptions, variances, and zoning changes with potential to affect the general welfare of the City of New Smyrna Beach.
