Decatur Next

2000’s Ten Year Strategic Plan


Amidst growing concern among residents and community leaders that, with Decatur again “on the map” for developers, and with changes in demographics resulting from the sharp escalation in property values, Decatur was in danger of losing the qualities that are so valued by residents, businesses and visitors, the decision was made to initiate a round table discussion and strategic planning process to help guide decision making in the coming decade.

The result was 2000’s Strategic Plan, which has since proven itself as the standard for how Decatur does long-range planning.
