Newnan seeks public input on Comprehensive Plan Update


From Special Reports

The City of Newnan is looking to hear from citizens and stakeholders regarding the City’s Comprehensive Plan Update, a document for the City’s growth and development over the next 20 years.

City staff will prepare the full Comprehensive Plan Update according to the rules for local comprehensive planning adopted by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.

“We feel that it is essential to have the public’s opinion and input as we develop a plan for the future of our city,” said Chris Cole, City Planner for the City of Newnan. “We’re looking forward to making the process as easy and convenient as possible for our citizens to be able to provide their feedback on what they would like to see for the future of Newnan.”

The City’s Planning and Zoning Department will be hosting three drop-in listening and interactive sessions to meet with citizens and stakeholders. Those dates and times are listed below.

Tuesday, March 16, from 6-8 p.m. at the Carnegie Library

Thursday, April 8, from 6-8 p.m. at the Howard Warner Building

Wednesday, April 14, from 6-8 p.m. at the Newnan Centre

The sessions will allow the public to communicate views on land use, public facilities, city amenities, transportation, and other Newnan opportunities. The sessions are an important way to involve citizens and stakeholders in the overall process. These sessions will also encourage social distancing as the session formats will be designed with COVID-19 safety in mind.
