New Land Development Ordinance to Impact Residential Development in Mount Dora


The City of Mount Dora is proposing a new Land Development Ordinance, which will have a significant impact on residential development in certain areas of the City. The Ordinance will apply to all new residential development. The ordinance, which was scheduled to be adopted on December 3rd, has been continued until January 15, 2019, to “allow the developers an additional thirty or so days to communicate with staff.”

If adopted, the new Ordinance will require developers to submit up to 7 housing models for any residential development generally located south of S.R. 44 and east of U.S. Highway 441 and within the Wolf Branch Innovation area. Each housing model will be required to supply multiple variations and design options for customization. In addition, residential home designs will have to incorporate traditional design elements.

Other important changes include new rules for landscaping, roadway design, pedestrian connections and more.
