December 3, 2018 – Lawrenceville’s Mayor and Council adopted the City’s 2040 Comprehensive Plan at a public hearing on Monday evening, December 3. The 2040 Plan is a federal mandate of all local communities and serves to outline the strategic direction of the City and establishes a framework for long-term, sustainable growth patterns.
Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson stated, “We are excited to be adopting a plan that will chart the growth and development of the City for the next 20 years. As representatives of the people, we look forward to serving them – together with staff – in helping to realize the common vision we have all agreed to here, tonight.”The proposed plan was conceived over the past year through a series of public meetings, input from a dedicated citizen’s committee, statistical data and research, staff recommendations and expert opinion. The plan calls for a focus on key character areas, the establishment of supportive zoning ordinances and a dedicated priority to realizing quality development in the community. Top initiatives include fostering redevelopment, infusing arts and education, encouraging high-quality residential options, enhancing transportation services and developing relationships with local businesses.
Chuck Warbington, City Manager, added “Staff has diligently worked with numerous resources and constituency groups to update this plan and present what we believe is a realistic, workable strategy for the City’s future. The adoption of this plan will ensure that future staff members, elected leaders, board members, residents and visitors to Lawrenceville have a solid and achievable road map for success.”
The City’s next steps are to begin the Zoning Ordinance and Development Regulations update, establishing the support and resources needed to efficiently implement the Plan’s goals. Click here to see a copy of the 2040 Comprehensive Plan Draft.
