Meeting will highlight growth, business, services

20-question survey will be on agenda at gathering on Sept. 13


Planning Commission Chair Dan Rosales hopes that the citizens of Elbert County won’t wait until it’s too late to have their voices heard.

On Sept. 13 residents will have the opportunity to answer a survey that will provide the planning commission with vital information about growth, business and services for the future of Elbert County.

“This second meeting is directed more on the content of the master plan as opposed to demographics,” which is what an earlier meeting was, he said.

The survey will about about 20 questions in length, Rosales said.

There will also be new information presented that shows five different scenarios of how growth could impact the county.

“The five scenarios really are an eye-opener,” Rosales said.

“It basically says that `if everybody should have 35 acres, this is what the county would look like, if it’s mixed, this is what it’s going to look like.’ It’s an eye-opener,” he said.

“This will help people better understand how growth is going to impact the county as a whole,” Rosales said. “We need a cross-section of people because in one form or fashion it will impact you.”

Rosales encouraged people to be early for the Sept. 13 meeting.

“Try to get there at 6 o’clock so they can look at maps and have a better understanding prior to the presentation,” he said. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.
