Farmton encompasses nearly 60,000 acres of land in Volusia and Brevard Counties. The Miami Corporation retained Ivey Planning Group to assist them in studying new uses, new visions and intelligent approaches to maintaining the environmental assets of the land while preserving its economic viability.  To that end, IPG has provided master planning services, smart growth expertise and public outreach assistance.  Over the past seven years IPG has met with the owners, various stakeholders, and government agencies to map out a future for this land that will benefit the owners, the current residents of the region and future generations.  In 2009 Ivey Planning Group filed separate comprehensive plan amendment applications with Brevard and Volusia County that contained similar policies and a consistent vision.  The Volusia County Council and Brevard County Commission both approved the Farmton Local Plan.

Norpak Corporation
Port Orange, Florida
Planning

In an effort to provide the City of Port Orange with future economic development opportunities, our staff was retained by the property owner of approximately 1,200 acres of land to undertake a Comprehensive Plan Amendment.

The purpose of the amendment was to provide the property owner with a comparable amount of residential units as currently approved while increasing the non-residential uses to allow for commercial and industrial uses as well as a “Town Center” for city lands west of Interstate 95. The Comprehensive Plan creates a series of mixed-use districts of varied land use densities and intensities.

The project received an award from the Innovations Groups for its creative approach to achieving government approvals.

Located in Southwest Volusia County, this 1,824-acre Activity Center is currently undeveloped. Because of its position on the I-4 corridor, this area holds great potential for future development. The staff of IPG was retained by the County of Volusia, in partnership with the Cities of Deltona and DeLand, to seek an Areawide Development of Regional Impact (DRI) as a means to promote sustainable economic development for this region.

As part of the scope of services, our staff hosted a design charrette to develop a Master Plan for the DRI. This full-day event had close to 100 attendees including local government officials, planning staffs, regulatory agencies, property owners and concerned citizens. The final product was a collaborative Master Plan that is the basis for the DRI.

Orange County, Florida
Planning

In July 2005 the Board of County Commissioners of Orange County, Florida retained Ivey Planning Group, LLC to develop the Innovation Way Economic Development & Environmental Resource Management Study, which was subsequently adopted the same year. The project is located in the southeast region of Orange County, an area encompassing approximately 97,000 acres where recent growth pressures and infrastructure improvements have opened the way for more intensive development. The study focused on the western 32,000 acres and included five development scenarios. The goals of this study included identifying where and how growth may occur, proposing the appropriate environmental controls, and ensuring the promotion of high-technology industries for sustainable economic development.

The report made a number of key recommendations regarding southeast Orange County. IPG recommended that the County establish a High Tech Corridor land use designation overlay for inclusion in the County Comprehensive Plan. Implementation of the Plan Amendment should include specific policies requiring:

  • multimodal transportation design
  • implementation of design principles that provide internal trip capture
  • creation of opportunities for the County to acquire ecologically sensitive lands
  • balancing of uses such that job creation is a precedent to increased residential densities.

The plan was adopted by Orange County in November 2005
