2020-2021 Timeline

Envision Athens is a community-wide effort to develop a common vision for the future of the Athens-Clarke County community.


This process has resulted in a visionary, yet achievable multi-dimensional strategy to guide community and economic development for the next 20 years. This will lead to a shared sense of accountability and commitment to implementation and a sense that this is not “just another plan.” Envision Athens was and will continue to be, open and inclusive, intuitive and informed, and carefully-designed and implemented.
