from today's Banner-Herald:

Athens residents can review Athens-Clarke County's proposed comprehensive plan today through Jan. 30.

The comprehensive plan is a state-mandated document that will guide growth and development over the next 10 years.

The document will be available for review at the Athens-Clarke Planning Department, 120 W. Dougherty St., from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Jan. 30. An open house also is scheduled for 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the planning department. The Athens-Clarke Commission will discuss the plan at a Feb. 12 work session and vote at a called session before a Feb. 21 agenda-setting meeting.
