Comprehensive Plan Update - in progress 

ABOUT THE COMPRHENSIVE PLAN UPDATE PROCESS

The City of West Melbourne is currently in the process of updating the City’s Comprehensive Plan through the year 2040. The State of Florida requires that each local government have a land-use plan to reflect the 10-year planning horizon of a community. The comprehensive plan lays the foundation and groundwork in planning for our community’s future growth. It establishes policies for a community’s future and reflects the community’s visioning and identity and their commitment to these policies. Throughout this process, there will be outreach to gauge community wants, concerns, and needs. This will be accomplished through a series of public workshops that will include participation activities, presentations, and surveys where participants will be asked to share additional ideas and desires for the community. Please see the project timeline below:
