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.

City of Oviedo Comprehensive Plan update

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.
