Comprehensive Plan Update

A comprehensive plan establishes a community’s policies and priorities regarding future development while aiming to preserve the environmental features and community character of the area. The comprehensive plan serves as a blueprint for future commercial and residential land uses, housing, and conservation, as well as cultural and recreational amenities. An important component of the comprehensive plan is identifying the new infrastructure and growth demands needed to support the future physical and economic development of the community. 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
  • Housing
  • Public Utilities such as Wastewater, Solid Waste, Drainage and Natural Groundwater Aquifer Recharge, and Potable Water
  • Conservation
  • Recreation and Open Space
  • Capital Improvements
  • Intergovernmental Coordination
  • Public Schools

Additional elements may also be considered in this Evaluation and Appraisal Report such as: Community Design, Redevelopment, Historic and Scenic Preservation, Economic Development, Water Supply/Conservation, Historic and Scenic Preservation,.

Visioning Workshop #1 - Where Are We Now?

On Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. The City of Oviedo and it’s consultant VHB invited all interested persons to attend an online public visioning session concerning the update to the comprehensive plan.

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.
