After weeks of talking with various groups, property owners and other stakeholders, the University of Georgia team that's creating a downtown master plan is holding a public meeting Tuesday on the plan. The Athens Downtown Development Authority hired UGA Professor Jack Crowley to design the plan, and he has in turn gotten graduate students involved.
Open to the public, the Tuesday meeting will begin at 6pm in the Parthenon Room of the Classic Center. It will focus on three topics the team has heard repeatedly in the course of their discussions: public space, the river district and transportation + access. The meeting will also include electronic polling, work sessions and group brainstorming presentations.
The goal of the Downtown Athens Master Plan is to envision the future of this city in the year 2030 and to better enable all the citizens of Athens, GA to have input on the specific aspects of that future.
Anyone can participate in the meeting on Tuesday. In fact, Crowley has said that everyone who cares about downtown Athens should attend and participate.
