HIAWASSEE, GA – Towns County, City of Hiawassee, and City of Young Harris want citizens’ input in the joint comprehensive plan for the next five years.
The public survey can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/W7MHXXN?fbclid=IwAR0Pc7lMiYqfPwuKAY1gggoUSsqnxmhNxtN03u53oHu8uT7h5v8Spu9AvPQ
The goal is to hear from those living in the area and gain a better understanding of how they would like to see Towns County develop in the future.
A comprehensive plan is updated every five years, previously it was every 10 years. It takes into account residents’ wishes for the future and outlines a mission, which hopefully makes the end result easier to achieve.
Often times by including a certain goal in a comprehensive plan, it becomes easier for a county or city to receive grant funding for those projects.
The survey only takes a few minutes, and all responses are kept entirely confidential.
The county and cities will host public meetings and additional opportunities to participate in the process too.
