Planning & Zoning Division
The planning function is divided into two areas:
Current planning is concerned with review and permitting of proposed commercial and residential development within the regulatory framework of the City of North Port Land Development Code and zoning regulations.
Long range planning is concerned with the updating and maintenance of the North Port Comprehensive Plan. This includes reviews of regional development proposals, developing master plans and analyzing other long-range planning issues such as demographics, housing, transportation, and environmental issues.
Citizen input is essential in planning for the community's future. The division works with local associations, and citizens and advisory board members on a regular basis. Planning staff also acts as liaison to various regional planning authorities.
