Public input on Clayton County land use sought tonight

Clayton County citizens can give feedback on the county's land use plans for the next five years tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Board of Commissioners' headquarters, 112 Smith St., Jonesboro.

JONESBORO — Clayton County is seeking the public's input on county land use tonight at 6:30 p.m.

The meeting will cover the county's Comprehensive Use Plan 5-Year Update and will be held at the Board of Commissioners headquarters, 112 Smith St. in downtown Jonesboro.

Every five years, the state requires Clayton County to update its long-range planning goals. In Oct. 2014, the Board of Commissioners adopted the "Clayton Forward 2034" plan, which is a 20-year land use and development plan.

The plan will help the county manage both new developments coming in, as well as redevelopments of existing areas.

Both the Community Development Department and the Atlanta Regional Commission serve on a steering committee that guides the county on working with the Comprehensive Plan Project Team.
