Comprehensive Plan Update

The Douglas County Comprehensive Plan is required by State law to be updated every five years.  This plan update will be completed by October 2023.  This page is a resource for all of the information you need to stay informed on the Comprehensive Plan Update.  Your participation is encouraged!

Public Input Opportunities

Citizen input is central to the Comprehensive Plan Update.  We are excited for two upcoming community meetings that will be held in December.  The community is invited to small area planning meetings that will allow citizens to provide feedback on two focus areas of the Comprehensive Plan Update. Advertisement for Lithia Springs workshopAdvertisement for Winston workshop
