Community Development

The mission of the Community Development Department is to improve the characteristics of the City of Brooksville that make it aesthetically, economically, and developmentally attractive to residents, businesses, and property owners. The Department strives to preserve and enhance Brooksville’s unique way of life while ensuring the protection of property and the continuation of a high standard of living for current and future residents.

These goals are met on a daily basis as the Community Development Department assumes the responsibility of providing assistance to City property owners and developers relating to land use, zoning, concurrency requirements, addressing, property development, and the like.


While the Comprehensive Plan is intended, in the short term, to address the years from 2017 to 2027, the Plan establishes Goals, Objectives, and Policies designed to shape the City through and beyond the year 2050. The Plan represents the collective ideas and dreams of Brooksville stakeholders who participated in the Brooksville Vision Foundation’s meetings from 2011 through 2015. This document describes the preferred future of Brooksville expressed by stakeholders. These stakeholders spoke with a strong voice about what they value in their community and what they want for its future – safe, walkable neighborhoods and parks, a thriving downtown district that maintains the historic charm that has existed for decades, a strong educational foundation for Brooksville’s youth, vibrant local business districts, and excellent housing and employment opportunities throughout the City.
