Brevard Comprehensive Land Use Plan

The City of Brevard recently completed an update of its Comprehensive Plan. Housing has become a major issue for this popular mountain town, where buildable lands are limited, visitor demand for short-term rentals is high, and large-scale multi-family projects are seen by some as a threat to the small-town charm. The plan includes a new framework for land use and development that acknowledges environmental constraints and limited developable areas. A form-based approach to new regulations encourages missing middle housing, walkability, and downtown revitalization. Health and active transportation projects were priorities to continue making the City a world-class outdoor recreation destination. Input from the Rosenwald community, a historically African-American neighborhood on the north side of downtown, was sought and used to develop affordable housing and neighborhood improvement recommendations.

Stewart provided comprehensive planning, community engagement, corridor planning, urban design, housing, and natural resources.
