The Rome-Floyd Planning Department is hosting the final workshop in a series of public workshops to gain community input on the 2040 Rome-Floyd Cave Spring Comprehensive Plan. The final workshop will be held Tuesday, April 17 at the Shannon Scout Hut. The comprehensive plan serves as an overall guidebook for community growth and development including housing, transportation, land-use, economic development, and other areas as warranted or desired by the community.

The public workshop will introduce citizens to the plan, the process and expected outcomes. Additionally, community members will meet planning department staff and the consultants working on the plan.

The State of Georgia requires communities with permit-issuing authorities to update their comprehensive land-use plan every ten years. The governing authorities may implement policies that stem from the comprehensive plan to help execute the vision identified in the plan. The consulting partner for the 2040 Comprehensive Plan update is TSW.

The Rome-Floyd Planning Department is a joint city/county service responsible for management of zoning/land-use, transportation, historic preservation, and GIS mapping.
