  • A 10- to 20-year prioritized β€œto-do” list for the community
  • Comprehensive plans are living documents typically written with a 20-year outlook. They should be updated from time to time as the community changes in population, or as trends and practices evolve. The City of Palm Coast first adopted its Comprehensive Plan in 2004. Although the Comprehensive Plan is updated to meet state law continuously, the planning horizon was last updated in 2010.

    This update is being completed as a priority project from City Council’s Strategic Action Plan. Since the current plan and vision statement were adopted in 2004, many things have changed in the City. As a community, we need to:

    • Assess recent changes in our community conditions
    • Address emerging trends and new issues
    • Identify current community priorities

    This update is our opportunity as a City to accomplish the following:

    • Discuss Palm Coast’s FUTURE
    • Develop a new VISION
    • Involves everyone’s IDEAS
    • Enhance entire COMMUNITY

    For additional information about the City’s current Comprehensive Plan, click here.

    Community engagement will play a key role in shaping the new Comprehensive Plan Update. Local community members and stakeholders will be encouraged to get involved throughout the process to provide input on the vision and goals, plan development, and strategies and recommendations for Palm Coast's future.

    A wide range of activities and tools will be used to provide convenient opportunities for the public to attend meetings and events, participate online, meet the project team out in the community, and receive project updates.
