The Comprehensive Plan guides future growth and redevelopment for Delray Beach regarding land use, mobility, housing, historic preservation, healthy community, education, open space and recreation, conservation, capital improvement, strategic partnerships, infrastructure, and coastal management. Each of these topics is written as a separate element within the Comprehensive Plan. All elements together must be compatible and complement the other elements, thus ensuring a systematic plan for redevelopment.

Always Delray (The Updated Comprehensive Plan)

The update to the Delray Beach Comprehensive Plan is branded “Always Delray” and includes 13 Elements, which are grouped by theme: Live, Work, Play, and Grow. The update began with the creation of a Steering Committee, appointed by the City Commission. Community workshops were held at the outset to discuss and receive public input on the plan subjects and issues impacting the city. The community and Steering Committee input, along with the input of Subject Matter Experts, consisting of City Staff, consultants, and community members, was utilized to formulate the elements.

At the February 4, 2020 City Commission meeting, Ordinance 19-19 was approved to adopt the Always Delray Comprehensive Plan. The approved plan includes the 13 Elements, the Always Delray Map Series, and the DIA Map Series.
