PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING

Public Hearing


COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATE  


Information:  Athens-Clarke County will soon begin a required update to the community-wide Comprehensive Plan. This document serves as a main source for identifying an agreed upon vision, goals, policies, needs, opportunities, and work program over the next 10 years. Although technically a separate effort, the Comprehensive Plan was strategically scheduled to commence in cooperation with Envision Athens, a similar study presently underway. Envision Athens takes a broader approach to community and economic development, while the Comprehensive Plan has set criteria that must be addressed in hopes of providing a collective outline for achieving initiatives highlighted in the plan. The overall result entails both a Comprehensive Plan and Service Delivery Strategy that will in turn serve as the first example of how organizations like ACCUG can look to Envision Athens for agreed upon community values and align their respective master plans with those of the community as a whole.
Please join us at the regular meeting of the Planning Commission on Thursday, June 1, 2017 as we initiate the 2018 Comprehensive Plan. A brief presentation regarding the process will take place followed by an opportunity for public input. As this is an item on the Planning Commission Agenda, public input will be held to the time allowances governed by the Planning Commission Bylaws.
