Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP 2035)

The City of Maitland’s 2035 Comprehensive Development Plan is a new blueprint for the city’s future, bringing together interconnected neighborhoods, multimodal transportation solutions, and “smart” redevelopment options.With a goal of remaining a model community that is regionally competitive, the bold, yet flexible plan supports an emerging downtown, maintains a high-quality suburban community experience, and protects cornerstones of the City such as its parks, lakes, and other natural resources.

City Council unanimously adopted the Maitland 2035 Comprehensive Development Plan in March of 2019.  The plan reflects the community's long-term vision and sets for the framework for the City's Land Development Code, the regulatory document which implements the vision.

Land Development Code (LDC)

The Land Development Code is the City's regulatory document which provides the rules and regulations for development and redevelopment within the incorporated City boundary.  The City is currently in the process of updating and modernizing the Land Development Code to make it more intuitive and adapt to the City's changing development patterns.  City Council  unanimously adopted the downtown portion of the Code update in June of 2020.  The remainder of the Code update is anticipated to be completed in the summer of 2021.
