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.

To ensure that Oviedo’s updated comprehensive plan articulates the community’s policies and priorities, is it essential for the City to collaborate with residents. Direct input is needed from the community through public workshops, forums, and hearings. Traditionally, communities utilize high-touch, in-person approaches to bring forth collaborative environments. However, with today’s health concerns, a less traditional high-tech format via the internet and social media is necessary to engage residents, create substantive discussion, and ensure the plan reflects the values of the community at large.

To accomplish this, VHB and the City of Oviedo are utilizing a Virtual Collaboration Room to gather public input on the comprehensive plan update.
