The Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission will host the 10th of 12 community-planning meetings from 6-7:30 p.m. Monday at Savannah
Technical College’s Liberty Campus, 100 Technology Drive in Hinesville. The meeting will provide residents an opportunity to offer input regarding their communities and the county’s future growth.
The purpose of the community-planning meetings is to review recent development trends in the area and receive public input regarding future decision-making about land use, zoning and transportation. The input received from these meetings will be used to formulate 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 elected officials to make decisions on proposed land use developments, as well as transportation and infrastructure investments.
The Hinesville subarea comprises 17,743 acres, which have been further divided into three sections: West, Mid and East. The Hinesville (West) subarea includes the western part of the city of Hinesville and areas of unincorporated Liberty County. The subarea encompasses approximately 7,754 acres of land. The west end generally includes the area west of Veterans Parkway/Pineland Avenue and Kelly Drive. The majority of the land is currently designated for low-density residential development and mixed-use, with plans for single-family and multi-family housing. These changes will aid in the development of transportation plans for the Hinesville (West) subarea. The meeting is open to the public, and public participation is encouraged.
A second West meeting will be held in October, the Hinesville (Mid) meetings will be in November and December, and the Hinesville (East) meetings are scheduled for January and February. Dates will be announced.
Meetings for all areas outside Hinesville have been completed.
