What is a Town Plan?  

The Town Plan is a policy document that helps town staff and elected officials make decisions on land use development and redevelopment, public services and facilities, and economic development.  Developers also use it to understand how the town envisions its future and how their project might contribute to that vision.

It establishes a common vision for the town’s future and generally covers the following topics:

  • Land Use
  • Economic Development
  • Open Space and Recreation
  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • Public Services
  • Natural and Cultural Resources

Ultimately, the Town Plan sets out a framework, that once implemented, will maintain Winter Park as a great place to live, work, play and learn.  This is achieved through a series of goals and policies that are implemented by “short-term” (usually 1-2 years); “mid-term” (2-5 years); and “long term” (5+ years) actions.  These actions are usually performed by the Town and potentially other partners in the community.

The Town Plan is updated through a public process.  This means that the residents, property owners, and businesses of Winter Park will have many opportunities to weigh in on the issues they see as critical to the Town, the opportunities that should be pursued, and the challenges that can be overcome. 

The Town Plan Update is spearheaded by the Community Development Department. A Steering Committee has been formed of local citizens, members of local boards and commissions, and town department staff.  The Steering Committee is responsible for reviewing project materials and managing the progress of the update process.
