Future Land Use Meeting

Henry County is updating its comprehensive land use plan. This document serves as a guide where new housing and what type of housing can build within the county. The next public meeting, to look at the future land use map, will be on Tuesday, May 23. It starts at 6:30 pm. The meeting will take place at the county admin building located at 140 Henry Parkway, McDonough.

Attendees will hear progress to date on the plan update. They will also take part in an activity to help map out where new construction could occur within the county. The planning team will use residents’ feedback when determining their final recommendations. The final document will be ready by August.

Of note, the county plan update is looking at unincorporated areas only. Each city is undergoing a separate update. More info about the county update is available on its website.
