Comprehensive Plan 2023


The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) administers the rules and regulations for Comprehensive Planning in the State of Georgia.  These rules provide local governments with a framework for the development, management, and implementation of local comprehensive plans. Effective local planning is essential to the State of Georgia’s overall economic prosperity. The Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A) Section 50-8-1 established authority for the DCA to define minimum standards and procedures for developing comprehensive plans for local governments in the State of Georgia.  These standards and procedures are designed to help the County prepare a plan that identifies immediate needs within the community and looks for opportunities to allow the County to achieve its vision for the future.  An adopted Comprehensive Plan allows the County to maintain its “qualified local government status,” which makes the County eligible for selected state funding and permitting programs.
