Comprehensive Planning

In Georgia, all local governments are required to establish Comprehensive Plans (updated every 5 years), which include a community work program of activities for the next 5 years. The RC assists with each of these throughout the year.  Currently, we are working on comprehensive plan updates for Warren County and Wilkes County.  These plans are created collaboratively between each county and its municipalities.  A public hearing is held to initiate the planning process; a second public hearing is held once the plan is drafted to receive final public comments on the draft. 

The Warren County and Wilkes County plans are scheduled for June 2019 adoptions.  The final plan will include data, information and activities in the areas of economic development, broadband, housing, community facilities, natural and cultural resources, and land use, as well as community goals, needs and opportunities, and a 5-year work program of activities.
