Following a final public hearing De. 3, Lawrenceville adopted the city’s 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The 2040 Plan outlines the strategic direction of the city and establishes a framework for long-term, sustainable growth patterns.
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. Information: www.lawrencevillega.org.
