Town of Leland's Master Plan
Leland’s original Master Plan was created in 2009, and was recently updated and adopted in August 2016. The plan focuses on the immediate actions to best accommodate Leland’s development in a manner that builds the greatest value to the community and will best leverage long term growth. The Master Plan was developed with a collaborative, community process in which we use the experience of the town’s growth to tune up the policies that help us, “grow our future, nourish our roots.”
TOWN OF LELAND - MASTER PLAN
When the Master Plan first was adopted by the Town Council, one of the results was the FlexCode. The FlexCode combines sustainable development and living principles into the planned vision for the Town. This transect-based code provides the basis for real neighborhood structure, which includes walkable streets, mixed use, transportation options, and housing diversity. Currently the FlexCode is implemented as part of the Village Road corridor. Developers and parcel owners, however, are able to benefit from the FlexCode as a rezoning option in other parts of the Town.
