Planning and Zoning

Department Responsibilities:

The Development Services Department is responsible for the administration of the Town of Lantana Code of Ordinances. The Town's Code of Ordinances directly affects the appearance of the Town, as well as land use, landscaping, parking, sustainability and more.

Comprehensive Plan

The Town of Lantana Comprehensive Plan addresses the needs and intentions of our community. The Comprehensive Plan concentrates on specific elements for the Town, including Land Use, Transportation, Coastal Management and Capital Improvements. For a copy of our current Comprehensive Plan, please contact Tiffany Kapner at 

Traffic Calming

The Town of Lantana is committed to ensure the overall safety and livability of residential neighborhoods.  One way to meet this commitment is through a collaboration of Town staff, residents and other agencies in an effort to minimize the impact of traffic on neighborhoods.  The Town of Lantana Neighborhood Traffic Calming Policy and Guidelines provides a process for identifying and addressing problems related to speeding, excessive volumes, and safety on neighborhood streets. For more information about the Traffic Calming program please contact Tiffany Kapner at 


Annexation means adding land to the boundaries of an incorporated municipality, making the property a part of the municipality. This can be accomplished in two ways; a referendum vote and a petition for voluntary annexation. The length of the annexation process varies from one process to another. A voluntary annexation petition may go as quickly as a few months, while a referendum vote can take as long as a year.

As a Lantana citizen, you will have a more direct voice on issues that directly impact the community you live, work and play. Your elected officials, five Town Council members, and various Town officials are easily accessible, while still maintaining your privilege of voting for your county commissioner. For more information about our Annexation program, please contact Tiffany Kapner at
