Comprehensive Plan

The Comprehensive Plan is a document that establishes policies for the management of land use and development within the City. In addition, Plan policies address environmental protection, the provision of public services and intergovernmental coordination. 


Volume I of the Sanford Comprehensive Plan serves to document the Goals, Objectives and Policies of the City that reflect compliance with current statutory requirements, as well as the evolving vision and priorities of the City of Sanford.  Instead of being organized into traditional elements, Volume I has been organized into cohesive themes, in order to avoid duplicative information and to more successfully link concepts that might otherwise be separated into distinct elements.

Each Section offers one or more Chapters covering a specific topic that represents the typical Elements found in a Comprehensive Plan.  Each chapter includes an introduction that provides the regulatory and local intent of the Chapter and a set of GOPs that will serve as a regulatory and procedural framework that will be implemented by the City’s Land Development Regulations (LDRs) and other regulatory documents. Furthermore, the GOPs contained herein also serve as commitment by the City Commission, Planning & Zoning Commission and City Staff to implement the strategies and planning initiatives covered by this document.  The City understands that these GOPs are an essential tool to achieving the City’s Vision, as listed in Chapter IB above.
