Lakeland's Comprehensive Plan is a collection of documents designed to guide current and future development. The Comprehensive Plan addresses land use, transportation, parks and recreation, and natural resources. The vision established in the Comprehensive Plan guides land use decisions made by City staff, the Municipal Planning Commission, and the Board of Commissioners.
In March 2022, the Board of Commissioners authorized Kimley-Horn to begin work on a new Comprehensive Plan for the City of Lakeland. The Comprehensive Planning process began in May 2022 and will take approximately 15 months to complete. The process will include multiple opportunities for public participation. Public events will be listed on the City's Agenda Center site. For additional information and updates on the Comprehensive Plan, click here.
