The Comprehensive Plan is required by Section 163.3177, F.S and includes certain elements such a Future Land Use, Housing, Transportation, Recreation, Utilities, Capital Improvements Conservation, and Coastal Management. The Comprehensive plan provides a framework for how Ormond Beach will grow, redevelop, and provide infrastructure for the city through the Goals, Objectives and Policies within the individual elements. The Land Development Code provides detail regulations such as zoning uses, dimensional standard, conditions for uses, parking requirements, landscape and tree preservation standards, architectural regulations, and environmental standards.
Each parcel of land has a Comprehensive Plan (land use) and a Land Development Code (zoning) designation. The land use designation defines broad uses, density, and intensity and the zoning provides specific development and use standards.
