On May 7, a subcommittee of the Municipal Planning Commission met to start the intensive process of finalizing a Comprehensive Plan for the City of Lookout Mountain, Ga. We hope to finish before Thanksgiving, but given the unquestionable importance of this document, we will not rush the process at the expense of thoroughness and quality.
One of the most valuable components in developing our Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan) is hearing from the citizens in our community. Therefore, we are reaching out to ask you to be on the lookout for upcoming opportunities to participate in this very important project for our city.
When there is an upcoming meeting or there are opportunities for you to voice your thoughts and ideas, we will notify you by any of the following methods:
- Occasional emails sent to the email address on file with the city
- Letters which may be enclosed in your sewer bill to save postage expenses
- Signs may be posted to highlight upcoming events
We will make every effort to keep you informed and involved, because we cannot complete a plan for our community without involving our community.
An official Comp Plan page will be on the city web site at www.lookoutmtnga.com. All agendas and minutes of our meetings will be posted on the website, and all meetings are open to residents.
Your first opportunity to officially participate and be heard will be responding to a survey that we plan to send out to the community in four to six weeks. We will include most of the questions that are in the old survey that was completed in 2009, but your questions will also be considered for inclusion. You may submit questions about the 2009 survey or submit your new questions to our official email address by May 16. Please include your name and address at the top of your email.
All comments and questions will be sent to Phil Walker, our consultant on Thursday, May 17.
Lookout Mountain has historically been a place where people dreamed of living and raising their families. Generations have reaped untold benefits from living in our unique community. With your help, we can create a widely supported plan to ensure that this beautiful place remains a viable option for those who want to live in an active and thriving community!
