About the Map
A Future Land Use Map (FLUM) is required as part of the Comprehensive Plan map series. Typically, a FLUM identifies the goals of development of an area by assigning broad category land use categories to large blocks of land. Unlike a zoning map, which identifies how to construct on a parcel of land, the FLUM helps guide the type and density of development for an area.
For example, a future land use category of Residential Low Density (6 units per acre) could indicate that predominately residential developments and supporting services would be allowed, with development not to exceed 6 dwelling units per acre. The future land use category typically does not indicate the types of dwelling units allowed (e.g. single family, townhouse, condo, etc.) unlike the zoning designation.
