Comprehensive Plan

Ten year update, 2005

The Comprehensive Plan is a process required by the state of Georgia to ensure that all communities achieve minimum planning standards and procedures, especially as they relate to physical infrastructure and growth. Because Decatur’s existing culture of planning far exceeds what’s mandated by the state, we use the Comprehensive Plan process as an opportunity to do a midterm check-up of our larger strategic goals and accomplishments.

The plan is generally broad and long-range in nature and addresses such elements as population, economic development, housing, natural and cultural resources, community facilities and services, intergovernmental coordination, transportation, and land use. In addition to these eight elements, a vision statement describing what citizens and community leaders need and desire is also included.
