Georgia County Embraces Smart Growth

20-year community land use plan has one goal: limit explosive growth.

"[A] 20-year community land use plan...proposes several changes to the county's zoning ordinance, including 35-foot height limits; more setback and buffer requirements, as well as larger lot sizes, for new development; regulations for business signs; and 'town centers' for commercial development."
