SNELLVILLE – A plan to map out Snellville’s future through 2040 is under way.
City officials have begun the process of creating the 2040 Comprehensive Plan, a guide to shaping Snellville’s future for decades to come.
Three firms have been chosen as finalists to create the plan: Jacobs of Atlanta; TSW of Atlanta; and Amec Foster Wheeler of Kennesaw. These firms will be interviewed in the coming weeks and one will be chosen to collect public and professional input through community meetings, disseminate findings and ultimately write the plan.
The City of Snellville 2030 Comprehensive Plan was adopted Feb. 9, 2009. Since then, the city has worked to create a Towne Center in the downtown area. A major focus of the new plan will be to expand the Towne Center around a city market and library though a partnership with Gwinnett County. Officials believe that will spur commercial and residential growth in the areas surrounding City Hall and elsewhere.
The 2040 Comprehensive Plan could be ready for approval by the end of the year, city officials said, as the mandated state deadline is Feb. 1, 2019.
