Comprehensive Land Use Plan revisions vote tonight!

From our friends in Athens Grow Green Coalition:

The Commission will vote on the revisions to the Comprehensive Land Use
Plan at a special called session on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 7 pm. The latest
version of the Plan has not yet been posted on the Planning Web site, but
was included as a large (32 MB) file on the ACC Web site (as a link from
the Agenda).

We have extracted the “Vision Statements, Issues and Opportunities”
section – the portion originally drafted by the citizen subcommittees –
and posted them as a more manageable PDF file on the Grow Green site at

This version reflects the edits made by the Mayor & Commission at work
sessions last week.
