What Is Concurrency?
"Concurrency" is a shorthand expression for a set of land use regulations that local governments are required, by the Florida Legislature, to adopt to ensure that new development does not outstrip the government's ability to handle it. For a development to "be concurrent" or "meet concurrency" the local government must have enough roadway capacity to serve each proposed development. Concurrency also requires local governments provide the capacity in stormwater, parks, solid waste, water, sewer and mass transit facilities to serve each proposed development. These seven public services grouped together are known as "concurrency facilities".

Local governments are required to include in their comprehensive plans a "concurrency management system" to keep track of the impacts of new development on concurrency facilities
