Apollo Beach lies within the “SouthShore Areawide Systems Plan” area.  The SouthShore Areawide Systems planning initiative called for the preparation of six community plans, one of which was the Apollo Beach area.  The Apollo Beach Community Plan consists of nine (9) goals and strategies that are generally intended to enhance community character, promote the development of a town center, promote economic development, establish design standards, protect and enhance the canal system, enhance the transportation system, and develop trail and sidewalk connectivity. 



The community plan furthers the vision and values of the citizens of Apollo Beach. The citizens of the Apollo Beach community recognize the inevitability of future growth in the area and have reconciled growth within the scope of maintaining the feel, charm, and convenience of waterfront-oriented small town living. In line with these assumptions, the citizens formulated the following goals listed in order of priority:


Goal 1:    Enhance Community Character

Goal 2:    Ensure Quality Land Use and Design

Goal 3:    Maintain Canal System

Goal 4:    Improve Transportation

Goal 5:    Establish/Improve Sidewalks, Bicycle Lanes, and Trail Connectivity

Goal 6:    Improve and Expand Public Use Facilities

Goal 7:    Support Economic Development

Goal 8:    Strengthen Community Associations

Goal 9:    Encourage Renovation and Retrofitting of Residences
