Orlando, FL (PRWEB) December 27, 2013
The Planning and Zoning Resource Corporation now provides specific information and zoning regulations for Orlando, FL. Zoning rules and regulations are dependent on the city and in some cases incorporate language to protect the maintenance of the culture and architecture of the city as it grows.
The City of Orlando states that: “Planning [and Zoning] is the organization of all elements of an urban environment. It takes various aspects of a city or town and its citizens into consideration by committing to: mix land uses, emphasize existing community assets, create a range of housing opportunities and choices, foster “walkable” close-knit neighborhoods, promote distinctive, attractive neighborhoods and business districts with a strong sense of place, including the rehabilitation and re-use of historical buildings.” Additionally, the City helps in planning to: “preserve open space, natural beauty, and critical environmental areas, strengthen and encourage growth in existing neighborhoods and districts, providing a variety of transportation choices, make development decisions predictable, fair, and cost-effective, and encourage citizen and stakeholder participation in development decisions.”
Orlando is consistent among many cities in that municipalities are divided into districts with regards regulations standards for: the height and bulk of the buildings and other structures, the area of a lot which may be occupied and the size of required open space, the density of the population, the use of buildings for trade, industry, residences, or other purposes, and the minimum setbacks and yard requirements for structure and uses.
The City of Orlando requires that owners submit a permit application before the use changes or construction commences on a property. Zoning can become complex because of the changes and updates to regulations. The Planning and Zoning Resource Corporation helps commercial clients to navigate through the complex zoning laws to ensure that projects will move forward in a timely manner and the property use will be in accordance with zoning laws and city planning trends.
