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.”
