Planning Commission Meeting & 2018 Comprehensive Plan Commencement

Thursday, June 1, 2017


The Athens-Clarke County Planning Commission is a ten-member body composed of ACC residents appointed by the Mayor and Commission for five-year terms. The Planning Commission meets regularly on the first Thursday of each month to deliberate and make recommendations to the Mayor & Commission regarding the Planning & Zoning code, Comprehensive Plan and other planning and development-related matters.



AGENDA – June 1, 2017
The list below is a summary of this month's items, including links to location maps, site plans & Staff reports, once available. Please click the link to the right to download the complete agenda.

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATE:
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.
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. Questions can also be directed to the Planning Department at 706 613.3515.
