ON LOCAL GOVERNMENTS’ COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
DATE: Tuesday, February 21, 2017 2:00 – 7:00 PM
LOCATION: Baxley City Hall Council Chambers
Are you concerned about the future of Appling County, Baxley, Graham and/or Surrency? Do you have thoughtful ideas on what needs to be done to make the community a better place? What do you consider to be pressing needs and issues in the community?
The local governments of Appling County, the Appling County Board of Commissioners and the cities of Baxley, Graham, and Surrency, are in process of updating their comprehensive plan required by state law. The current joint comprehensive plan dates from 2007, and is the principal guide to the long-term growth and development of Appling County and its municipalities. The new update will focus on achieving a vision set by the community on what it wants to be, and addressing identified needs and opportunities.
You are cordially invited to get involved and to participate in this plan update process. You may do so by attending a public drop-in session concerning the comprehensive plan update to be held at Baxley City Hall Council Chambers from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 21, 2017. The session is designed to be informal, to answer any questions you may have, and to allow for one-on-one input at your convenience. Planning staff from the Heart of Georgia Altamaha Regional Commission will be on hand to discuss the plan and its process, and to receive your input and ideas. There will be no formal presentation. The event is designed as a drop-in at whatever time is convenient for those wishing to participate or learn more.
Please attend and voice your ideas. We want to hear them. Let us know what you think. Do your part in making Appling County an even better place to live, work, and play.
