Johns Creek will seek public input for the update of its comprehensive plan at a three-day workshop in January.

Sessions are scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 24; 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Jan. 25 and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Jan. 26 in the third-floor Council Chambers of City Hall, 12000 Finley Road. Residents can attend one day or all three days, if they wish.

Planning, design, economic development and transportation consultants will be on hand to solicit ideas and answer questions about traffic congestion, future parks, undeveloped land, the redevelopment of existing shopping centers and the future Town Center.

During the workshop, children 8 years old and older will be invited to participate by "building" a future Johns Creek using the popular Minecraft game. Children are asked to bring their own laptops to play. To learn more: http://bit.ly/2eYog2D
