Corridor, Community, and Revitalization Plans are types of Critical Area Plans (CAPs). CAPs are intended to direct the growth and development of unique areas throughout Sarasota County.
Community Plans: These plans typically focus on specific improvements that improve the livability of neighborhoods. They may include recommendations for sidewalks, street trees, or new uses. They rarely include conditions for development approval.
Corridor Plans: These plans typically include conditions for development approval that address signage, landscaping, and access. They may also include provision for sidewalks and urban design elements, such as the maximum or minimum distance buildings can be placed from streets.
Revitalization Plans: These plans focus on the manner in which blighted or aging portions of the county can become more economically active. They typically include recommendations for land use changes and specific recommendations regarding the deletion or addition of uses. They may also include urban design elements.
These plans are intended to supplement the existing zoning regulations, and must be developed consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.
