The fifth of 12 community-planning meetings, hosted by the Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission, will be 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Liberty County Community Complex, 9397 E. Oglethorpe Highway in Midway.
The meetings, which give residents a chance to offer input on the next comprehensive plan, are every other month in locations around Liberty County.
The purpose of the meetings is to review recent development trends in the area and receive public input regarding future decisions about land use, zoning and transportation. The information received from these meetings will be used to formulate the 2040 Liberty County Comprehensive Plan, which will serve as a guide for the development of Liberty County and its communities for the next 25 years. The comprehensive plan will be used by city and county elected officials to make decisions on proposed land-use developments, transportation and infrastructure investments.
The staff of the Liberty County Consolidated Planning Commission will present current land-use maps and transportation plans for the Midway community, which includes the city of Midway and unincorporated areas of Liberty County that encompass approximately 22,376 acres of land. It is bound on the northeast by Highway 17 and comes to just below Tradeport West Industrial Park. The Midway subarea is bound by Interstate 95 to the south and extends beyond I-95 into the upper-northeast area of the county to the coast.
The meeting is open to the public. For more information, call LCPC Executive Director Jeff Ricketson at 912-408-2033, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.thelcpc.org.
