Comprehensive Planning

2017 Comp Plan Logo-table

A public hearing was held Oct 1, 2018 to provide public notice that the draft is complete and available online and at City Hall; to review the general contents of the plan; and to brief the public on the steps following submittal.

On Nov 12, 2018 at a Regular Meeting, the Mayor & Council will consider the letter to transmit the plan to the Northeast Georgia Regional Commission (NEGARC). If NEGARC review is favorable, the plan proceeds to the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) for substantive review (usually 30-45 days). Thereafter, the plan returns to the Mayor & Council for consideration of the Resolution to Adopt.

Below is the draft of the Comprehensive Plan & Appendix as transmitted to the NEGRC.
