How city of Ocala property owners and their neighbors may develop their land has changed.
The Ocala City Council has voted to change the city’s comprehensive plan’s Future Land Use Element by reducing the roughly 18 different permitted land use categories to six uses. That means property owners and their neighbors may be able to do more with their land than they have in the past.
The Future Land Use element and the accompanying map serve as the blueprint for how property may be developed in the city. The council also approved an ordinance temporarily amending the zoning classifications to coincide with the comprehensive plan’s new land uses.
