Future Land Use
Current to Quarterly Update: February 01, 2019
The jurisdictional Future Land Use data is a generalized depiction created and intended to be used in coordination with Hillsborough County Property Appraiser’s Parcel data. In cases where a land use boundary falls within a right-of-way or water body, those boundaries have been brought to the approximate center of that feature. In order to determine proper land use category acreage, GIS analysis must be performed utilizing current parcel data and water boundaries.
Existing Land Use
- Current to Quarterly Update: February 01, 2019
Hillsborough County Existing Land Use (ELU) is derived from the Hillsborough County Property Appraiser parcels and NAL DOR Codes.
The Unincorporated Hillsborough County Planning Areas are used by the Planners to track and identify Rezoning cases. These boundaries are shown on our Future Land Use map defining areas that are based on, but not exactly the same as, the Community Planning Areas.
The Unincorporated Hillsborough County Community Plan Areas determine boundaries for strategic plans created by stakeholders and organized around a shared vision and goals for a community’s future. Community plans in unincorporated Hillsborough County recognize the distinct character of communities – rural, suburban, and urban – through strategies and actions oriented to community needs, values, and design preferences.
The Urban Service Area was established as part of The Long-Range Comprehensive Plan. This area focuses growth to a geographically defined area which is planned for urban services.
