City of Jacksonville

Land Development Regulations Update Committee

Our Purpose

The City of Jacksonville is one of the country’s largest cities by land area, with a diverse set of characteristics and conditions across its built and natural environment.  The City is prone to coastal, riverine, and localized flooding events, the increased frequency and intensity of which is adding pressures on the built environment.  Recognizing the need to adapt, the city has embarked on the Resilient Jacksonville planning process to establish a framework for the city’s adaptation strategy and create a platform to adapt and thrive in the face of acute shocks and chronic stressors.  Part of this strategy involves ensuring that local land development regulations (LDRs) enable the city to shift its risk footprint to areas that are less vulnerable to acute shocks while responding to chronic stressors. 

  1. Increase resilience to flood risk in the new and existing built environment.

  2. Increase housing opportunities to accommodate growth.

  3. Protect neighborhood character while accommodating growth.
