Fayette County has sent its updated comprehensive plan to the state for review. In a letter dated April 25, county commission chairman Eric Maxwell certified to the Atlanta Regional Commission and the Department of Community Affairs that Fayette had held the required public hearings and solicited stakeholder input “in a manner appropriate to our community’s dynamics and resources,” and that staff and other decision makers had reviewed the Regional Water Plan and the Rules for Environmental Planning Criteria when crafting the draft.

Based on projected population growth and funding, the 149-page plan outlines Fayette’s future land use, transportation needs and economic development from 2017 to 2040.
