Comprehensive Planning Applications & Fees


The applicant must submit to a Department of Development Services planner an application package prior to the cutoff date as indicated on the official Planning and Zoning Board meeting schedule.

Transportation Impact Analysis

A Transportation Impact Analysis (TIA) is conducted in order to determine compliance with the transportation concurrency requirements and to evaluate the transportation systems' ability to accommodate the additional traffic generated by the proposed development. All projects generating more than ten (10) two-way peak hour external trips shall be required to submit a TIA. This TIA shall be prepared by the applicant based on the requirements of the Land Development Regulations (LDR) and shall be submitted with the Planning Application. A TIA is not required for a de minimis project unless requested by the Development Services Director as established in §401.07, LDR.

Administration Fees

The City Commission shall establish, by resolution, a schedule of administration fees. The applicant shall pay the required fees at the time the application is submitted. Administration fees shall be set and adjusted periodically by the City Commission (§305.01[B][2], §305.02[B][2], and §305.06[D], Land Development Regulations).

Transportation Impact Fees

The community has a substantial investment in the transportation system infrastructure from the standpoint of fiscal interests, quality of life standards, and necessary continuity for motorists. Therefore, it is necessary, in the interest of public health, safety, and welfare, to regulate the use, construction and maintenance of the transportation network. The use and development of land is regulated to ensure that new development bears its proportionate share of the cost of the capital expenditures necessary to provide the transportation network required to mitigate the impacts of new growth in the City as contemplated by the Comprehensive Plan (§52-32, Code of Ordinances).
