Naples City Council to discuss more land use restrictions

Laura Layden | Naples Daily News February 11, 2023

Naples City Council will discuss potential changes to its land development code at a Monday workshop.

The council has recently made some changes to its development rules. It’s looking to make more of them, with the vision and goal of protecting the city’s small-town charm.

Here’s what we know:

Proposed Naples land development code changes to be discussed

  • The city is considering four land use changes. That includes new limits on lot coverage ‒ or building footprint –which has sparked controversy.

  • The other proposed changes would increase height restrictions for commercial and mixed-used buildings, stiffen development standards for Fifth Avenue South, and tighten up on regulations for determining the maximum density and intensity, or size, of mixed-used projects.

  • The city has hired a planning consultant to make recommendations on how to move forward.

  • The private consultant, Josh Martin, with Sustainable Settlement LLC, is calling for more public input before crafting any revisions.

  • The consultant has suggested the city hold “two or three community listening sessions” to ensure a more “thoughtful process.”
