Cumming to hold hearings on comprehensive plan

The city of Cumming has two public hearings on its draft comprehensive plan scheduled for later this month.

The plan is a roadmap out to the year 2037 and enumerates the city’s strengths and opportunities/challenges. It touches on such categories as future land use, transportation, economic development and historic preservation. Under land use, it anticipates single-family residential growth of more than 14 percent between now and 2037, with public institutional growth at 18.5 percent and commercial at 19.9 percent.

The hearings are set for 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Feb. 21 at Cumming City Hall, 100 E. Main St.
