The Osteen Local Plan area is located in southwest Volusia County along the SR 415 corridor between Lemon Bluff Road and Acorn Lake Road and includes 3,990 acres. The Osteen Local Plan is the result of extensive intergovernmental coordination between the City of Deltona, County of Volusia, and community stakeholders. On December 5, 2008 the City and the County entered into a Joint Planning Agreement (JPA). The JPA requires the local plan to be adopted into the respective Comprehensive Plan of each local government.
From a planning perspective, the recognition of the SR 415 corridor as being suitable for urban uses dates back to the 1990 adoption of the County’s Future Land Use Map. In addition, through the years, the County and the City have amended their Future Land Use Maps resulting in increases of urban intensity along the SR 415 corridor. The intent of the Osteen Local Plan is to recognize and enhance the urban opportunities for the area while protecting the rural and environmental characteristics that make up a significant portion of the Osteen area. Development will be aesthetically pleasing, functional and adequately supported by infrastructure.
