Introducing 'Lawrenceville Forward' - A Smarter Strategy for our Future

Lawrenceville Forward

Through a strategic initiative called Lawrenceville Forward, the City is jointly updating its 2040 Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance to identify major issues, set a strong community vision for the future, develop action plans, and revise regulations in one fell swoop. Integrated processes lead to aligned outcomes, ultimately creating a smarter strategy for our future!


The 2040 Comprehensive Plan will provide a framework for our future, guiding elected officials and staff in decisions about future growth. Building on the existing plan, this plan will include an assessment of existing conditions, identification of key needs and opportunities, and the development of a community-driven vision for the future.


The Zoning Ordinance is one of the strongest tools for implementing the vision established by the Comprehensive Plan.  It is the regulatory tool governing how property can be used. By combining the plan update with the comprehensive rewrite of the Zoning Ordinance, we can ensure the regulations are aligned with the vision.


This is a collaborative process, led by the City of Lawrenceville Department of Planning and Development with support from other departments and the consultant team, Jacobs.  The public will be engaged through the Steering Committee, online survey, and community workshop to ensure the concerns and aspirations of the community are understood and incorporated into the new plan and regulations, and the Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance will be vetted by elected officials prior to adoption. 


WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!!

Engage with the planning process online or in person!  An online survey will be posted to this site in November 2017 to collect community input on what's working, what needs work, and the vision for the future. An in-person community workshop will be held in January 2018 to discuss potential strategies and review draft content.  More information about the online survey and community workshop will be posted as the dates near. You can also sign up for the mailing list to receive project updates or submit feedback any time using the form below.
