Farmton Local Plan
The Farmton Local Plan (FLP) evolved from years of meetings with representatives from state and local government, businesses and environmental groups, and interested citizens. For generations to come, the FLP will provide a lasting legacy of conservation and valued intelligent planning. The FLP takes a 50-year, vision-based approach to comprehensive planning for the natural and built landscape.
The FLP is made up of two primary components, the GreenKey and the Sustainable Development Areas. The GreenKey lands were designated through greenprinting – a process that identified the most significant ecological treasures. The GreenKey areas were vetted with The Nature Conservancy, Audubon of Florida, Volusia Forever, and Brevard Environmental and Endangered Lands. The GreenKey areas are now in permanent conservation easements, held jointly by Florida Audubon, Volusia County or Brevard County, and St. Johns River Water Management District, and reviewed annually to ensure compliance with the Conservation Management Plans.
Sustainable Development Areas (SDA) will adhere to high standards for sustainability and will be planned with core values of Smart Growth, Traditional Neighborhood Design, Transit Oriented Development, walkability, green building, and water and energy conservation measures. As each SDA is prepared for development, additional review will be completed through incremental DRI reviews at the state, county and city levels as appropriate.
