The survey opened July 20 and closes Aug. 10, and it can be found here. Areas of focus for the 2040 Comprehensive Plan include community goals/vision, land use, housing, economic development, transportation, community improvement elements, a five-year community work program and broadband services—which is a new focus area added to the minimum comprehensive plan requirements from the state in the last year, Alpharetta Senior Planner Michael Woodman said during the meeting.
The planning process will rely on both in-person and online public engagement from city residents, elected officials, property owners and other stakeholders over the next year.
Public meetings on the 2040 Comprehensive Plan are tentatively scheduled for September 2020 and January 2021, as well as a public hearing on the draft plan in May 2021.
"We're just kicking off this campaign, making sure that the public's aware of what's going on," Mayor Jim Gilvin said during the meeting.
