Lakeland's continuous planning process provides guidance for a rational response to growth and change. It helps the city to determine where to focus priorities to address the community's most pressing challenges.
The Planning Department oversees the approval process for several types of zoning, subdivisions, variances, and designs. In conjunction with other city departments
, it oversees long-term planning and provides recommendations to various city boards and committees
involved with the development process.
