Comprehensive Plan

The Growth Management Plan

Orlando’s comprehensive plan is called the Growth Management Plan (GMP). It describes the City’s vision for the future and translates that vision into policies, programs and public investments.

The policy document is adopted by City Council. Changes to the document must be submitted to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity for approval. The support document provides data and analysis for reference purposes.
