This concludes the Community Audit Report ***
Collier County has experienced a tremendous rate of population growth since 1980 and the trend is anticipated to continue. In response to the anticipated population increase and the Growth Management Act of 1985, Collier County adopted a revised Growth Management Plan in January of 1989 as part of a statewide effort to effectively manage growth. The Golden Gate Area has grown at an even higher rate than the County-Wide rate since 1980 and is projected to contribute significantly to County-Wide growth in the future.
The Golden Gate Area was previously subject to the regulations outlined in the County's Growth Management Plan. However, in 1991, the unique characteristics of the area resulted in adoption of a separate Master Plan for Golden Gate. This Master Plan became a separate Element of the County's Growth Management Plan and supersedes Objective 1, Policy 1.1, and Policy 1.3 of the County-Wide Future Land Use Element. All other Goals, Objectives, and Policies contained in the Future Land Use Element and all other Elements are applicable. In addition, the Golden Gate Area Future Land Use Map will be used instead of the County-Wide Future Land Use Map.
In April 1996, the Board of County Commissioners adopted the Evaluation and Appraisal (EAR) for Collier County. As a result of the recommendations made in the EAR, Ordinance 91-15, which adopted the original Golden Gate Area Master Plan was repealed and a new Ordinance 97-64 was adopted. This plan includes three major sections:
- The OVERVIEW section provides an introduction to County-Wide and Golden Gate Area planning efforts.
- The IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY places the Plan into effect. Strategies have been developed to address land use, public facilities, and natural resources. This section also includes the Goals, Objectives, and Policies, and the Golden Gate Area Future Land Use Map.
- The SUPPORT DOCUMENT outlines data and information used to develop the implementation strategy and the Goals, Objectives, and Policies.
