What is the Difference Between Future Land Use (FLU) and Zoning?

Future Land Use FLU designations indicate the intended use and development density for a particular area, while zoning districts specifically define allowable uses and contain the design and development guidelines for those intended uses. The FLU designations were adopted by the Osceola County Board of County Commissioners on April 16, 2010 as part of the 2025 Osceola County Comprehensive Plan..

The Future Land Use Element allows for various zoning districts within a given Future Land Use designation.  The appropriate zoning shall be determined based on a number of criteria identified within the Osceola County Land Development Code (LDC).
