Athens Comprehensive Plan

Take Home Meetings: 

One of our goals for this comprehensive plan process is to provide a variety of options for community members to participate. We understand that everyone lives busy lives and many of us do not have schedules that easily allow for attendance at an evening public meeting. In order to help address this issue and provide a way for more input in the plan we have developed Take Home Meetings that you can host or participate in on your own time. This can be done over dinner, a lunch break, a club meeting, or as a neighborhood get-together. 

We have created these Take Home Meetings to get more input on two topics that were very clearly identified as priorities in our visioning process. One Take Home Meeting relates to Athens arts, culture, and history and the other relates to energy, environment, and sustainability. Each has a downloadable packet that includes simple meeting instructions for the host or moderator, some key findings that emerged, and a participant response sheet for each person.

Your input and contributions to this plan will help to ensure that the finished plan reflects the diversity of Athens. If you are interested in these issues and are looking for a way to participate in the comprehensive plan please consider hosting a meeting with your family, neighbors, co-workers, or a club or group you are involved with. If you have any questions please let me know.
