The city of Collegedale will hold its first public planning session to gather input for its new land use plan on Tuesday, Aug. 20, at 6 p.m.
Citizens, business owners and other stakeholders are invited to help city officials plan for future growth while preserving and enhancing the character of the city.
The city of Collegedale will hold its first “kickoff” meeting to gather input used to help craft a new land use plan. The planning process will help identify current and future needs in terms of housing, retail, connectivity, industry and recreation. The meeting will be held at Collegedale City Hall from 6-8 p.m., at 4910 Swinyar Dr. just south of Apison Pike. Later meetings will be announced as the plan progresses.
“Collegedale is located squarely within the growth corridor of Hamilton County,” said Kelly Martin, Planning and Economic Development coordinator for the city. “The city is located in close proximity to some of the county’s largest employers including McKee Foods, Volkswagen of America, and Amazon.com. Our natural scenery and convenience to downtown Chattanooga, Cleveland and North Georgia also make the city a sought-after location for longtime residents as well as newcomers to the area. In times of limited resources, we need understand where we are headed and how to make sure we grow in an orderly and efficient manner-this plan will help us do that.”
