Ormond Beach is undertaking a state required Comprehensive Plan Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR). Every local government in the State of Florida is required to have and maintain a Comprehensive Plan. Rule Chapter 73C-49, Florida Administrative Code and Section 163.3191 of Florida Statutes require, at least every seven years, local governments determine whether the need exists to amend the Comprehensive Plan to reflect changes since the last time the Comprehensive Plan was updated. The last Evaluation and Appraisal Report was completed in 2010. In 2017, there was a determination that an Evaluation and Appraisal Report was not required. Ormond Beach is required to determine if an Evaluation and Appraisal Report is required prior to June 2024. If required, related amendments would require to be adopted within one-year of notification to the Florida Department of Commerce (formerly the Department of Economic Opportunity). If amendments are not adopted within one year of notification, the city would not be allowed to make any amendments to the City's Comprehensive Plan.
