The City of Key West is currently contracted with CGA to provide a complete rewrite of the City’s Land Development Regulations. The regulations were designed to support sustainable community and neighborhood growth while incorporating those standards which best reflect the unique character of the City of Key West, made up of both the historic “Old Town” and the “New Town” area.
With consensus building via public outreach, community workshops, and input from staff serving as the foundation of the code rewrite, the aim was to develop an easily understandable code that is user-friendly, easy to implement, and tailored to the both the natural and built environment of the City.
Key areas of focus for the project included the incorporation of new standards, programs, and processes related to Complete Streets, Parking, Transportation Demand Management, Affordable Workforce Housing, Signage, Landscape, Urban Design, Green Building, Adaptation Planning and Disaster Planning. All while ensuring consistency with the Comprehensive Plan and resolving any internal conflicts as they relate to definitions, standards, variances, processes, and administrative interpretations.
