City Council to Consider VaHi Master Plan in July
After unanimous adoption by the VHCA board in April and overwhelming support at the NPU-F vote in May, the Virginia-Highland Master Plan will next be considered at the Atlanta City Council Community Development Committee meeting on Tuesday July 15, 2014 at 12:30 pm. The meeting will be held at City Hall in Committee Room #2. This meeting is open to the public.
After review by the Community Development Committee, the Plan will be considered by the full City Council, most likely in August. Upon adoption by City Council, the Plan will then be added to the city’s official planning tool, the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP).
The City requires certain elements in a Master Plan: mobility, open space, recreation, safety, environmental issues, urban design, historic resources, public services, economic development, and education. All of these items were considered when assembling the VaHi Master Plan. Recommendations in the Plan also used as their starting point the existing plans and zoning code the City currently has adopted.
