Do you know what the Bryan County Comprehensive Plan is all about?
If not, there’s still time to get informed and give your opinion.
Bryan County’s comprehensive planners will host two public workshops next week, as the first in a series of opportunities for the community to provide input.
The workshops will be Tuesday, Feb. 19, at the Community Center in Pembroke and Thursday, Feb. 21, in the council chambers at Richmond Hill City Hall. Both workshops will start at 6:30 p.m.
The comprehensive plan was created by a committee of local residents, with the help of the Coastal Georgia Regional Development Center.
"This will be the document that’ll help guide what’s going to happen in the future and we are working with the community to develop the document," said CGRDC Director Tricia Reynolds. "We’re not doing this; we’re reacting to what we hear at these community meetings to create this plan."
The plan’s purpose is to create a policy to help guide the decision making for the county’s future. Specific assessment topic areas the plan covers include population, housing trends and conditions, economic development, natural resources, cultural and historical resources, land use, community facilities, transportation and intergovernmental coordination.
Reynolds said there will be additional workshops in March and April and she hopes all the residents of Bryan County will get involved.
"This is the future of your community being talked about," she said.
