Pursuant to Chapter 380, Florida Statutes, Regional Planning Councils are charged with the coordination of multi-jurisdictional agency review of large-scale development projects, which may impact more than one County. These projects, known as Developments of Regional Impact (DRIs), are typically complex and require input from numerous reviewing agencies. The South Florida Regional Planning Council maintains a very active DRI program.
Beginning in July 2009, Section 380.06(29), FS, exempts new developments in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties from participation in the DRI Program, as long as the developments are not within two miles of the boundary of the Everglades Protection Areas as described in Section 373.4592. Existing DRIs and ones that were undergoing review in July 2009 may continue in the Program or elect to discontinue participation.

South Florida Regional Planning Council maintains a database that shows development orders for Developments of Regional Impact (DRIs) in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. The database was developed in cooperation with Florida Department of Transportation Districts IV and VI.
Each project has a record for the original development order and additional records for subsequent amendments, including substantial deviations and notices of proposed change (NOPCs). Projects are listed alphabetically by name. The development order date indicates the sequence of amendments for each project. As changes are cumulative, it is recommended to review all records for each project sequentially.
In addition, the database includes records for proposed DRIs and amendments to existing projects. These records do not have a development order number and date.
For questions about the DRI Database please contact our DRI Coordinator at South Florida Regional Planning Council (954)985-4416.
