This is an unprecedented opportunity for us and our community. Envision Athens is about coming together to think about our future.
In general, planning like this represents good stewardship. Communities—like businesses—cannot reach their potential without a deliberate and thoughtful blueprint. The community has many significant assets and the potential to evolve dynamically in the future. This potential has a much better chance to be realized with an intentional and thoughtful planning process. One of the special aspects of this planning process is the opportunity for it to influence the Unified Government’s comprehensive plan update as well which will happen in the next year. The Envision Athens process will establish the larger community-based vision which will help to inform the development of the comprehensive plan.
