On November 19, 2012 the City Commission adopted Ordinance 2012-16, which amended the City's Code of Ordinances, Chapter 15, to update planning regulations in light of House Bill 7207. The Community Planning Act HB 7207 was signed into law by Governor Scott on June 2 2012 and is now in effect. This landmark legislation significantly limits the role of state agencies and shortens the time needed to process plan amendments. Rule 9J 5 Florida Administrative Code was repealed but limited portions were incorporated into the new statute. The twice per year limitation on large scale plan amendments was repealed providing local governments flexibility in the processing of amendments and thereby reducing the time needed to obtain approvals. For any questions, feel free to contact the Planning Division at (407) 327-5967.
