What’s next for Sandy Springs’ ‘Next Ten’ plan

Now that the Sandy Springs City Council has formally approved its Next Ten comprehensive land use plan, a document that will guide the future growth of North Fulton County’s largest municipality, staff is moving on to the next phase of the process.

A framework for development regulations under the new plan will be presented to the public at an open house scheduled for 4 p.m., March 20, followed by an official meeting at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 7840 Roswell Road, Building 500, officials said.

After the public overview, Sandy Springs planning staff will host informational meetings in each of the city’s six districts to talk about the plans and answer questions related to each district. The city also plans “drop-in” sessions each Wednesday in April, where residents can come to City Hall to review proposed zoning and ask questions.

The Council voted Tuesday to approve the Next Ten plan after the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and Atlanta Regional Commission signed off on the draft document earlier this month.
