Daytona Beach, Florida

Land Development Code

Daytona Beach retained Clarion Associates to prepare an update to the city’s existing Land Development Code. The goals of the update process include (1) making the code more user-friendly and more procedurally efficient; (2) implementing the goals and policy direction in the city’s adopted vision plan and comprehensive plan update; (3) modifying development regulations and practices in infill and built areas of the community to encourage redevelopment/

revitalization in ways that are compatible with the desired context; (4) encourage redevelopment of older, suburban-oriented commercial corridors into more mixed use, pedestrian-oriented places; (5) ensuring the character of existing residential neighborhoods is protected, and (6) raising the bar for development quality in the community generally. The draft Land Development Code is currently under review.
