CITY of PEACHTREE CORNERS INNOVATIVE AND REMARKABLE

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN

BUSINESS ROUNDTABLE | APRIL 2, 2013 A comprehensive plan is a city’s road map for the future. It outlines a vision for growth and development and defines specific steps the city can take to achieve its goals. The process asks: Where are we? Where do we need to be? How will we get there? The answers to these questions will guide the plan’s three major components: the existing conditions analysis, the community vision and goals, and the implementation plan. And these documents will direct policies across many areas for the next 20 years.
