On December 2, 2010, the City of Punta Gorda’s City Council adopted the Parks and Recreational Master Plan. As part of the Plan, design standards are required to establish a minimum set of technical specifications that address the unique character of the City. The design standards contained herein include crime prevention and safety design theories and emphasize features to be utilized in all new development, future renovations, additions, site development or other changes. They are dependent on site location, site conditions, functional requirements and the desired programming of the specific space, as well as the space’s design intent. All design standards will be reviewed during the City’s development review process and building permit application.
NOTE: The City Manager may approve necessary revisions to the City of Punta Gorda Parks & Recreation Master Plan Design Standards as from time to time the design standards may need to be revised due to project specifics and/or product changes and availability.
