What should Flagler County look like in 2050? That question, and other important subjects, will be posed to residents in the coming months.

On Monday, July 17, 2023, the Flagler County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) and the County’s Planning and Development Board heard a presentation from, and provided feedback to, the County’s comprehensive plan consultant (Inspire Placemaking Connective). Click below to take an important survey from the County’s consultant:

Flagler County is undergoing a review of its comprehensive plan, a document that provides guidance on what the future of the community should look like. Although changes occur along the way, a government’s comprehensive plan is “a document designed to guide the future actions of a jurisdiction. It presents a vision of the community’s future with long range goals, objectives and policies.”

Below is the full video from the meeting. The Chamber can report that local elected officials held a respectful and realistic conversation about important aspects of Flagler’s future, including transportation, development, parks/recreation, open space and more. We will urge business leaders to share their perspectives at multiple upcoming workshops.

Important to note is both the City of Palm Coast and Flagler County Government are engaging in the same process (comprehensive plan review) in similar timelines. As a result, the local governments have indicated, and the Chamber supports, sharing of information and comprehensive plan development to create a unified vision of Palm Coast and Flagler County’s future, together.
