Rockdale County Department of Planning and Development will hold an open house event to kick off the County’s Comprehensive Plan for the next 20 years. The Rockdale 2040 Plan Kick-off will be held Thurs., April 13, 2 p.m.-7 p.m. in the J.P. Carr Community Room, 981 Taylor St., Conyers. The public is invited to attend anytime between the hours of the open house.
During the open house, Planning and Development will provide the results of the 2016 Strategic Plan Survey as well as posters, maps and comment cards requesting detailed input from citizens on several topics including, economic development, social issues, land use, housing and more. Citizen input will aid the County in outlining goals, enhancing coordination and planning for future growth and progress in these areas.
“The plan will involve a lot of people and a lot of work, and we want it to be entirely shaped by the community,” Rockdale County Planner Kirsten Cook said. “When the Board of Commissioners adopts the plan in the fall of 2018, we want the citizens to already be very familiar with what’s in the plan because they had a part in crafting the vision.”
