Welcome to the City of Daytona Beach Land Development Code website. This website is your place for information and announcements regarding the rewrite to the City of Daytona Beach's Land Development Code (LDC). The primary purpose of this project is to implement the city's recently completed Vision Plan, the updated Comprehensive Plan, and the Redevelopment Area Plans, as well as to update obsolete development standards. Your continued participation and input will make a real difference in determining how the City of Daytona Beach continues to grow, develop, and redevelop.

How will the process work?

The LDC rewrite process kicked-off in late 2009 under the guidance of the city's planning division and an advisory group from the Planning Board. The city hired a team led by Clarion Associates, a national land-use and zoning consulting firm with offices in Florida, to assist the community with this process.

The rewrite is being carried out in three phases:

  • Phase One: Public meetings and interviews took place to gather input for the LDC rewrite. Phase One is completed.
  • Phase Two: The consultants produced a code diagnosis/annotated outline that identified the amendments that were needed for the LDC. Phase Two is completed.
  • Phase Three: The consultant and city rewrote the LDC in three modules and prepared a Public Hearing Document containing the full code for presentation at public hearings and consideration for adoption.

Read more about the LDC rewrite process and the schedule on the FAQs page.
