Comprehensive Plans

A Comprehensive Plan outlines a framework for the development of an area, recognizing the physical, economic, social, political, aesthetic, and related factors of a community. Per state requirements, each local government in Georgia must prepare, adopt, maintain, and implement a Comprehensive Plan that meets the required Minimum Standards, to be updated every five years. A comprehensive plan typically results from lengthy and intensive analysis, and provides the overall guiding principles for growth and development of a community. SGRC provides technical assistance to Southern Georgia local governments for comprehensive planning. For information specific to each community's Comprehensive Plan, see the links below.
