Check back here for updates on scheduled adoption hearing dates.
The White Paper
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.
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.
The Currently Adopted Master Plan
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.
