The City of Lookout Mountain, Ga., is creating a Comprehensive Plan to help protect the qualities that make our community special, as well as identify and plan for the challenges facing our community today and in the future.
Members of the Comprehensive Planning Committee working on this project are Jimmy Campbell (chairperson), Cindy Whitaker (vice chairperson), Ramsey Brock, Davo Devaney, Kevin Leckenby, Kenny Lee, Jason Lehn, Fred Robinson, Keith Sanford (ex officio), Jan Weaver and Arch Willingham.
In order to build a plan for our future, we need your input! Sherlock Holmes said it best, “Data! Data! Data! We can’t make bricks without clay.”
It is vital that we hear from our community. During the month of October, we are asking that every resident and friend of Lookout Mountain, Ga., participate in this process by completing a short confidential Comprehensive Plan Survey.
Your valuable feedback can be provided by completing the survey on the Lookout Mountain, Ga., website, www.lookoutmtnga.com/community/page/survey. For those residents who cannot complete the survey online, please contact Cindy Roberts at Lookout Mountain, Ga., City Hall, (706) 820-1586, for additional assistance. Remember, the last day to complete the survey is October 31.
The city is doing all that it can to spread the word and gather as many responses as possible. To date, residents have received a letter from Mayor David Bennett, both by e-mail and U.S. mail, and signs have been posted on the mountain. Please help by completing this survey and encouraging your neighbors to participate!
After the survey period is closed, residents will receive a report of the results. Community forums will be scheduled to allow additional opportunities for sharing input, and a final Comprehensive Plan community meeting will be led by Phil Walker, community planning consultant.
Look for follow-up in a subsequent Mountain Mirror issue. Richard Dawson’s catchphrase declares it best, “Survey says…”
