Apopka's Land Development Code

Updated for the 21st Century

About the Project

The City of Apopka is conducting a major update to its Land Development Code (LDC). The current LDC is now out-of-date, and needs to be comprehensively updated in order to better implement the City’s Comprehensive Plan 2030 and Grow Apopka 2025 Vision Plan. The update will also ensure the City’s development regulations are internally consistent, modernized, aligned with contemporary zoning best practices, and more user-friendly.


The LDC update project is a significant undertaking, and is expected to take 14 months to complete. The project is divided into five tasks, as follows.
