Land Use Plan

The City of Sanford, Lee County and the Town of Broadway worked collaboratively to develop a new land use plan. 

The land use plan is intended to serve as both a physical and policy plan to guide each jurisdiction over the next 10 to 20 years. The plan's focus is to assist elected officials and citizens in  making informed decisions concerning land use and development.  

During the planning process, focus group meetings with stakeholders and public input meetings were conducted to receive guidance and feedback on the topics covered by the plan. 

The updated plan establishes meaningful and achievable goals, as well as strategies and policies for the implementation of the plan.

"Plan SanLee" Land Use Plan

The “Plan SanLee” Land Use Plan provides a comprehensive planning tool, which focuses on policies guiding physical development. The plan provides guidance during the review of rezoning requests, site plan proposals, and subdivision proposals. 

An important component of the plan is the use of place types. View a list of place types and descriptions here. We have also created a Place Type Map, which graphically depicts the future place types desired by the community. 

The Unified Development Ordinance for Sanford, Lee County, and Broadway will implement many of the strategies in the Plan by updating existing development regulations.
