Hinesville residents can influence how the city grows at a Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission meeting from 6-7:30 p.m. Monday at Frank Long Elementary, 920 Long Frasier Drive.
It is the 11th of 12 planning meetings to let residents discuss their communities and the county’s growth. The meetings are held every month across the county.
The meetings are to review development trends and to get public opinions regarding land use, zoning and transportation. The input received will help write the 2040 Liberty County Comprehensive Plan — a guide for the development of Liberty County and its communities during the next 25 years. The Comprehensive Plan will be used by city and county officials to decide on proposed land-use developments and transportation and infrastructure investments.
The Hinesville subarea covers 17,743 acres, which has been further divided into three subareas: West, Mid and East. The Hinesville (Mid) subarea includes the area between Veterans Parkway and Gen. Screven Way, as well as the neighborhoods along South Main Street and West Oglethorpe Highway toward Allenhurst. The subarea encompasses approximately 4,621 acres, the majority of which is currently designated for low-density residential development and a significant amount of high-density residential and commercial development. Any proposed changes will aid in the development of transportation plans for the Hinesville (Mid) subarea.
Monday’s meeting is open to the public and public participation is encouraged.
