Auburn city officials will team up with consultants Feb. 25 to kick off a months-long process to develop a “strategic implementation plan” for how to time and fund several major projects in or near the downtown area.
The 6:30 p.m. meeting will be in the Auburn City Council’s chambers adjacent to the police station, and it is one of a series of planned public-input opportunities, according to a press release.
The finished document will organize Auburn’s future projects into a single document that will “prioritize their development and insure the investment of public dollars yields the maximum benefit,” the press release states.
The purpose of the planned improvements is to make the city a good place to do business and to create a lifestyle for residents that embraces small-town living, the press release adds.
“The Auburn of the future will also recognize the value of establishing an identity that will come to be associated with the city,” it states.
The public is invited to the meeting. Interested parties who cannot attend are invited to take an online survey on the city government’s web site at www.cityofauburn-ga.org or to call city planner Larry Lucas at 770-963-4002 to request a mailed copy of the survey.
