The county's Land Development Code is updated bi-annually and all updated and current changes may not be reflected.
Refer to the bottom of this page to see new ordinances that are in effect, but not yet incorporated into the document. To determine whether a chapter has been updated, refer to the bottom right corner of any page in that chapter to find the revision date. If you need to obtain a copy of the most current Code, call the Land Development Division at (863) 534-6792.
Since the entire Code is a large document, and could take a considerable amount of time to download, it has been divided into sections by chapter.
