Comprehensive Plan Amendment Process (coming soon)
The City of Palm Bay originally developed a Comprehensive Plan in 1981 in compliance with Chapter 163 of Florida Statutes (1975). The 1981 Palm Bay Comprehensive Plan adopted by Ordinance No. 81-19, was non-binding and had no requirements for implementation. The Florida Legislature, in 1985, adopted sweeping changes to the planning laws in Florida, requiring adoption by municipalities of binding comprehensive plans and more importantly, implementation of the plans. The City of Palm Bay adopted a plan to meet the new statutory requirements in 1988. That plan has been updated constantly, most recently in 2006.
