Macon-Bibb County Comprehensive Plan to Act as Blueprint for Next 20 Years
The Macon–Bibb County Planning & Zoning (P&Z) Commission hosted its first public hearing about the Comprehensive Plan for the county on May 11th. There will be ten more meetings or workshops, including the second public hearing, until the Comprehensive Plan will be finalized.
The Comprehensive Plan will detail Macon-Bibb's "vision of a community in areas of community goals, needs and opportunities, community work program, land use, transportation, housing, and economic development", according to P&Z.
The Georgia Department of Community Affairs requires this plan in order for local governments to have a "Qualified Local Government" certification, which then allows for certain state programs and funding.
There will be two public hearings, three steering committee meetings, four Public Involvement Workshops and open house. The final public hearing will be held on Thursday, August 11th. It will include discussion of the contents of the plan, a presentation of the draft document, and opportunities for public input.
