The Urban Service Area was created in 1990 and has remained essentially unchanged since its adoption.

The County is currently undergoing an evaluation of their Comprehensive Plan. As part of that evaluation, the County is reviewing population projections through the year 2050 to determine if there is sufficient land available to accommodate projected growth. Indian River County is anticipated to grow from 167,781 residents in 2023 to 210,100 residents in 2050. The County is in the process of evaluating the capacity of the current Urban Service Area to accommodate the increase in growth through 2050.

There are several ways to provide your input on the Urban Service Area and Boundary. One method is to participate in one of the engagement activities included on the website such as the online survey. You can also plan on attending one of the workshops in May, where the Project Team will host engagement activities designed to get your feedback on the Urban Service Area and Boundary.

The project timeline is anticipated to take approximately 9 months, ending around November 2024. For more details, please see the project timeline included on this page.
