Comprehensive Plan

The City of New Port Richey Comprehensive Plan is an official document adopted by City Council that guides decision making on the physical, economic, and social aspects of the community. The plan contains goals, objectives, and policies–including the Future Land Use Map and Future Transportation Map – that serve as the City’s 10-year blueprint for growth and development. 

Florida's Community Planning Act requires that all local governments adopt a Comprehensive Plan, in part to ensure that necessary infrastructure will be in place to serve current and future residents. This concept, known as concurrency, is based on adopted level of service standards for certain public facilities and services, such as roads, parks, and drinking water supply systems. 

Community involvement is integral to developing the Comprehensive Plan, which is updated every seven years following an evaluation and appraisal process. The City engages the community in process to determine if the plan continues to:

  • Accurately reflect current and anticipated conditions
  • Embody the community vision for the city
  • Address public infrastructure needs
  • Comply with applicable state laws
  • Be consistent with state and regional policy plans
