The City of Palm Coast today officially kicked off its Comprehensive Plan review/re-write with a joint meeting of the City Council and Planning Board. A Comprehensive Plan is a community-wide blueprint used for local planning and land use decisions on capital improvements, conservation, intergovernmental coordination, recreation, open space, future land use, housing, transportation, coastal management and more.
PCF Chamber President & CEO Greg Blose attended today’s meeting and encouraged local government officials to view the Comprehensive Plan revision process as an opportunity to solve existing problems. “Up to 80,000 more residents could call Flagler County ‘home’ by 2040. The Chamber hopes the Comprehensive Plan process can help identify future residential and commercial development locations, identify future properties suitable for economic development/job growth, and even help preserve and expand parks and open space in our community.”
The Chamber strongly encourages any Palm Coast business owner or resident to attend future Comprehensive Plan meetings/presentations to make their voice heard about how we can improve Palm Coast.
NOTE: Flagler County Government is also revising it’s Comprehensive Plan. The Chamber is also engaged in this process. Whether you live in Palm Coast or unincorporated Flagler County, an opportunity exists for your voice to be heard.
