Planning & Zoning

The Planning & Zoning Commission meets at 6:00 p.m. the third Monday of every month to hear and approve rezoning of property, subdividing of property and other planning and zoning issues. Any matters brought before the planning and zoning commission must subsequently be approved by the mayor and the City Council in the form of an ordinance.

Blueprint of a City: Our master plan

In 2018, Labarre and Associates updated the City of Walker Master Plan.  It lays out a plan for smart growth that is based on how the people of Walker would like this community to develop. To see the plan, click here.

How the planning & zoning process works

Property owners who want to have property rezoned or subdivided must complete an application packet from the City of Walker. These are available at the Permit Department in the Municipal Building, 10136 Florida Boulevard. Or, to obtain one online, click here.

To be included on the zoning agenda, a completed application and payment of a $350 fee is due in the Permit Department office three weeks before the Planning & Zoning Commission meeting, which is held on the third Monday of each month.

To be included on the planning agenda, a completed application and payment of a $50 fee is due in the Permit Department office two weeks before the Planning & Zoning Commission meeting, which is held on the third Monday of each month.

The procedure for approval takes approximately three months from start to finish, barring any unforeseen problems. Each application must go through the following steps before approval is granted.

Procedure for approval

Step 1: Required material is submitted to the Planning & Zoning Commission for review.
Step 2: Notice of the public meeting is posted in the newspaper.
Step 3: After discussion at a public meeting, the Commission votes to approve or deny the request and forwards its recommendation to the City Council.
Step 4: At the first City Council meeting, the Commission recommendation is introduced and the Council votes to have a public hearing. It will be scheduled for the next Council meeting.
Step 5: The public hearing is held and the City Council then votes to accept or reject the recommendation from the Commission.

The procedure from start to finish takes approximately three months, excluding any unforeseen problems.
