We invite you to explore past meeting materials located on this webpage. This short video presentation (15 minutes), as well as a copy of the presentation and the full draft plan document were created for our May 2021 virtual public meeting.
Now that the public comment period has closed, all comments received will be addressed by the study team in the subsequent draft of the plan document, which will be the public hearing draft document. It is the version of the plan that will be presented to Planning Commission and City Council for their vote during the summer of 2021 during the formal public hearing process.

The Indian River Planning Area Study will evaluate current conditions along the Indian River Road and Military Highway corridors, as well as in surrounding areas to create a strategic plan that will embrace the City’s Comprehensive Plan and its three cornerstones: responsible growth, infrastructure, and quality of life.
The plan will highlight the significance of both Indian River Road and Military Highway as important gateways that can help the City achieve its vision of being a place known for its well-connected communities and vibrant commercial areas. At the same time, the study will explore ways to enhance overall quality of life in the area and to accommodate a broad range of future mobility options.
This study will also support the City's adopted 2035 Comprehensive Plan, which identifies the Indian River Road and North Military Highway corridors as a contiguous planning area needing further study. Examples of past planning studies can be found in the Planning Department's Planning Library.
