Planning & Zoning

The City of Avon Park responds to questions and issues concerning planning and zoning in two ways.

Routine questions on property use, zoning requirements, and development planning are handled by the City Manager and City Clerk. The City answers questions and requests for interpretation by relying on the city's Land Development Code, the municipal code, and applicable ordinances.

Requests for zoning variances, approval of site developments, rezoning, special exceptions, and comprehensive plan changes require review by the City's Planning and Zoning Board/Board of Adjustment (P&Z Board). The P&Z Board meets on the second Tuesday of the month, when there is business before the board. For more information, contact the City Clerk at (863) 452-4405,  email:
