Sector Planning
Joint PB/BCC Hearing March 10, 2008
Why Sector Planning?
  • To provide a vision for how a community sees
    itself now and in the future
  • To support innovative and flexible planning and
    sustainable development strategies
  • To allow for mid-range planning for areas smaller
    than a county comprehensive plan but larger than
    zoning, PUDs, or DRIs
  • To address sprawl and incremental development by
    evaluating trends and shaping community patterns
  • To evaluate impacts to regional resources and

Florida Optional Sector Plans
  • Authorized by Florida Legislature in 1998
  • Initiated by the local government in agreement
    with DCA
  • Address large geographic areas, or sectors
    (minimum of 5,000 acres)
  • Three phases
  • Agreement
  • conceptual, long-term build-out overlay
  • detailed specific area plans
  • Sector plan adopted as a comprehensive plan
    amendment eliminates requirement for DRI process

  • Defines the geographic area
  • Identifies planning issues to be emphasized
  • Identifies requirements for intergovernmental
  • Includes procedures for public participation

Geographic Area
  • Encompasses approx. 15,000 acres of land
  • Located north of Interstate 10, south of
    Barrineau Park Road and west of highway 29.

Planning Issues
  • Economy
  • Determining an appropriate mix of uses to
    create a sustainable balance of
  • population and employment growth
  • Determining potential impacts on agriculture,
    tourism, military industries, regional products
    and permanent job creation

Planning Issues
  • Physiographic / Environmental Features
  • Maintaining or enhancing sustainability of
    natural eco-systems/water management functions
    and aquatic systems

  • Water sheds
  • Soils
  • Wildlife including threatened and endangered,
    special concern and rare

Planning Issues
  • Land Use Development Pattern
  • Large landowners in the Sector provide a
    significant opportunity to create sustainable
    Master Planned Communities.
  • Avoidance of a continuation of sprawl
  • The need to establish and/or maintain/protect
  • Urban and rural communities with appropriate
  • Viable agriculture in rural communities, and
  • Important eco-systems
  • Sector vision planning and design that
  • A sustainable development pattern with a
    required mix of land use and a job/housing, and
    mobility balance
  • Maximization of public infrastructure
  • Compatible land use relationships and
  • Avoidance of future blight

    network which includes
  • The proposed interchange

    above in a comprehensive manner and at the
    appropriate level of detail for the Vision
    buildout Overlay Plan and at the more detailed
    Specific Area Plan.

  • Overlay PerformanceStandards
  • Use of Urban FormBuilding Blocks
  • Demonstrated Need forLand Use

Lessons Learned
  • Sector planning requires commitment and patience.
  • Provide incentives to encourage better design,
    open space conservation, and public realm -
    place making.
  • Vision must be unique to the area.
  • Estimate infrastructure priorities early in
    process (beyond twenty years).
  • Maintaining citizen support for original vision
    throughout build-out is critical to success.
  • Plan must focus on graphic vision.

Lessons Learned
  • Plan must include trend analysis context for
    understanding the vision.
  • Plan should address key performance design
    guidelines, not policy.
  • Plan should lay groundwork for finance mechanism
    to implement vision.
  • Best used in greenfield areas.
  • Success strongly influenced by number of
    properties and property ownership patterns.
