Seminole County: Coding for Intentional Growth
Canin Associates is working with Seminole County to shape the next 20 years of growth in the unincorporated areas of the County. Our team has evaluated and proposed updates to the land development code to address a variety of issues ranging from “missing middle” housing, Florida Friendly landscape standards, and solar farms. A new mixed-use corridor zone will encourage forward-looking infill and redevelopment in the County’s major urbanized corridors.
More recently the County engaged Canin Associates to lead a visioning effort called Envision Seminole 2045, which is aimed at engaging residents and stakeholders in conversations about what might change and what should be preserved as the County is expected to absorb another 90,000 residents over the next 20 years.
Community priorities identified to date include preserving environmental lands, encouraging mixed-use redevelopment, and creating more opportunities to walk and bike safely and comfortably.
