City of Punta Gorda 

Comprehensive Plan 2040

The City of Punta Gorda's Comprehensive Plan has been prepared and adopted as required by the Local Government Comprehensive Planning and Land Development Regulation Act and the Florida Administrative Code.  In 2011, the Florida State Legislature enacted HB 7207, commonly known as the Community Planning Act (CPA) to replace the Local Government Comprehensive Planning and Land Development Regulations Act, which shifts the emphasis from the “top down planning” approach led by the State Department of Community Affairs (DCA) to providing local governments with more discretion and tools for making local planning decisions.  

As part of the new legislation, the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) was created to replace many of the State Land Planning Agency functions the DCA previously performed.  Other changes in the new CPA include:

  • Concurrency: State-mandated concurrency only applies to sanitary sewer, solid waste, drainage, and potable water on a statewide basis. State-mandated concurrency for transportation, public school facilities and parks and recreation is repealed (Local government can elect to retain concurrency for these facilities; however, local repeal requires a comprehensive plan amendment that is not subject to state review).  The requirement for a public school facilities element is repealed
  • Urban Sprawl: Urban sprawl methodology has been simplified and is less prescriptive
