Comprehensive Plan Update
A comprehensive plan establishes a community’s policies and priorities regarding future development while aiming to preserve the area's environmental features and community character. The comprehensive plan serves as a blueprint for future commercial and residential land uses housing, conservation, and cultural and recreational amenities. An important component of the comprehensive plan is identifying the new infrastructure and growth demands needed to support the community's future physical and economic development. Strategic investments made now in infrastructure, housing, and recreational amenities will help sustain a community where families will want to live, where companies will want to do business, where jobs will be available, and where people will come to work and play.
By Florida’s state law, the City of Oviedo comprehensive plan shall have 9 mandatory elements:
- Future Land Use
- Traffic Circulation
- Public Utilities such as Wastewater, Solid Waste, Drainage, and Natural Groundwater Aquifer Recharge, and Potable Water
- Recreation and Open Space
- Capital Improvements
- Intergovernmental Coordination
- Public Schools
Additional elements may also be considered in this Evaluation and Appraisal Report: Community Design, Redevelopment, Historic and Scenic Preservation, Economic Development, Water Supply/Conservation, Historic, and Scenic Preservation.
For a holistic view of all of the components that go into planning for our future growth, visit "The City's Vision for Future Growth" web page.
Planning for Growth
During the development of the draft Comprehensive Plan, the City’s Consultant VHB conducted a series of three community meetings in 2020 to determine where the community wanted to see growth occur. This was based on the proposed population projection of 20,000 additional residents by 2045. VHB engaged the community in a City-wide Visioning process to plan for growth, environmental protection, and economic prosperity in the City for the next twenty-three years. View those meetings online.
During these meetings, the public and the City Council decided to focus growth on key locations within the City that will have a vibrant, mixed-use, dense, walkable, green development pattern.
The community and the City Council chose scenario #3 to focus on sustainable growth and development. Four areas targeted for growth are marked in red in the image below. To view more details on this part of the process, see the "2020 Preliminary Work" section below. Keep scrolling to learn what's next and how you may provide input in this process.

2020 PRELIMINARY WORK
On April 6, 2020, City Council approved Resolution No. 3900-20, which awarded the RFP to VHB for the Comprehensive Plan Update. Contained within the RFP was a schedule to complete this update. It provided for a fifteen (15) month process. Despite COVID, we have managed to stay within the targeted dates. Additionally, MetroPlan Orlando hired VHB to do a 10-year Mobility Plan for the City. This process is going on simultaneously that will be incorporated into the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The Mobility Plan update will also include its own meetings with the public and City Council.
