Comprehensive Plan

Lakeland's Comprehensive Plan is a collection of documents designed to guide current and future development in Lakeland. The Comprehensive Plan addresses land use, transportation, parks and recreation, and natural resources. The vision established in the Comprehensive Plan guides land use decisions made by City staff, the Municipal Planning Commission, and the Board of Commissioners.

In March 2022, the Board of Commissioners authorized Kimley Horn to begin work on a new Comprehensive Plan for the City of Lakeland. The planning process will take approximately 15 months and will include multiple opportunities for public participation. More information will be posted on this site as the process moves forward. 

Below are the components that constitute the City's current Comprehensive Plan. Please note that some of the files are large and may take several minutes to download.
