City to hold comprehensive plan input meetings Tuesday

The city of Statesboro is holding two of three public input meetings for the 10-year comprehensive plan on Tuesday at two different locations.

The first meeting Tuesday is scheduled for 1–3 p.m. at Pittman Park United Methodist Church on Fair Road. The second Tuesday session will be open 5–7 p.m. at Fletcher Memorial Baptist Church on North Main Street. 

Both are drop-in sessions, which do not require participants to stay for the whole time.

Besides public infrastructure needs, such as street and drainage improvements, the plan will address future land use, housing and economic development. The state requires that cities and counties have a 10-year comprehensive plan, updated every five years, to remain eligible for grant and low-interest loan programs.

A meeting was held Monday at Luetta Moore Park on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

The city also invites public input on comprehensive planning priorities through a 16-question survey, available online at www.statesboroga.gov.
