Orlando’s comprehensive plan is called the Growth Management Plan. It describes the city’s vision for the future and translates that vision into policies, programs and public investments.
The policy document is adopted by City Council. Changes to the document must be submitted to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity for approval. The support document provides data and analysis for reference purposes.
GMP Amendment Process
All new development must be consistent with the goals, objectives, policies and maps in the GMP policy document. If a development proposal is not consistent, a GMP amendment may be required. Applicants wishing to request a GMP amendment should contact the Planning Division at 407.246.2269 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a pre-application meeting.
Most GMP amendments for projects less than 10 acres in size are small scale amendments. All other projects are large scale amendments. Please check with staff to determine if a project is large scale or small scale. A general schedule of the review process is provided below.
GMP Growth Projections
In order to estimate demand for services, the City projects population, employment, and land-use growth through the year 2045.
Each year, the city evaluates progress toward reaching the goals of the GMP by preparing an indicators report.
