The City of Ormond Beach is given the legislative authority to establish, amend and enforce land development regulations by Florida Statute 163.3202, and the City’s zoning classifications implement the land use policies and objectives in the City’s comprehensive plan. The zoning districts are utilized to promote land use compatibility as a means of protecting the health, safety and general welfare of the City and its citizens.
The zoning regulations are found in the Land Development Code and define the dimensional standards for the properties within each district, including but not limited to minimum yard setbacks, lot coverage, building size and location, building height, and density. Accompanying general regulations for specific uses are also addressed by the Code. Each of the zoning districts defines the uses that are permitted by right, uses that require planning staff approval, and uses that are permitted if granted a special exception by the City Commission.
