Miami Comprehensive Neighborhood Plan (MCNP)


The MCNP is Revised through First Round of EAR-Based Amendments As of May 14, 2018

By State Statute, each City and County in Florida must adopt a comprehensive plan and also adopt land development regulations to implement the comprehensive plan. The Miami Comprehensive Neighborhood Plan (MCNP) was adopted as Ordinance 10544 on February 9, 1989 and contains amendments by the City Commission through December 2017. The purpose of the MCNP is to indicate how the City will meet the needs of existing and future residents, visitors, and businesses, while preserving the character and quality of its communities. MCNP creates a policy framework that has the effect of law, to guide all public and private development decisions in the City. MCNP consists of materials (written and graphic) that describe the principles, guidelines, and standards for the orderly and balanced future development of the City (economic, social, physical, environmental, and fiscal development). The Chapters or "elements" of the MCNP encompass Goals, Objectives, and Policies for future land use, housing, parks, transportation, capital improvements, intergovernmental coordination, etc.
Implementation of the MCNP occurs through City land development regulations such as the zoning code, detailed housing plans, historic preservation code, environmental preservation code, and specific district or sector plans.
