Update: The Golden Gate Area Master Plan Restudy White Paper was presented to the Board of County Commissioners January 23, 2018. The Board approved of the recommendations and directed staff to prepare the Master Plan for transmittal to the state planning agency for review. The Master Plan will go through several public hearings prior to adoption. The hearing schedule will be posted here as soon as available. Thank you for your continued interest and participation.
The first Golden Gate Area Master Plan was created in 1991. A restudy resulted in a major amendment in 2003/2004. Since then, there have been about ten small scale amendments. The Plan provides growth management regulations for the areas know as Golden Gate City and the Golden Gate Estates. It is the guiding document, the vision, for the future of the Golden Gate Area and what it should look like. The link below to the "Golden Gate Area Future Land Use Element" is the current vision.
Golden Gate City and the Estates (East and West of Collier Boulevard) have unique conditions, challenges and opportunities. It's time to check the progress of the Master Plan and set forth an updated vision for these areas. What is the preferred future you will choose to create? County staff will be leading public workshops over the next several months to gather your input. Topics to consider are land use, mobility, environment and economic vitality. Join us at a workshop, complete a survey, send us an email, give us a call; we want to hear your opinions and ideas!
Many members of the community participated in taking a survey to describe their vision for the future. The survey responses were used to develop a draft vision statement for each area of Golden Gate. View the results of the first survey below.
