Public meeting on corridor studies

From Athens-Clarke County:

A community-wide public meeting regarding the Oak Street/Oconee Street and the Prince Avenue Corridor Studies will take place on Thursday, April 30 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm in the Planning Department Auditorium.

The Mayor and Commission of Athens-Clarke County have requested that the Planning Department evaluate the existing conditions along Prince Avenue and Oak Street/Oconee Street. Based on what is discovered, recommendations will be prepared regarding the future of these corridors. These recommendations can include changes or additions to public policies and development regulations designed to improve, enhance, alter and/or conserve the future quality of these corridors.

The primary focus of this project is on land use and design outside of the right-of-way, with a secondary focus on right-of-way improvements as they relate to the land use and design goals.

Planning Staff will give a short presentation at the beginning of the meeting and then again at 6:30. Public comment on the future of these corridors will be welcomed and is encouraged.

The Oak/Oconee Street study area boundary includes an area on either side of the corridor from the intersection with Broad Street, east to the intersection with the Athens Perimeter. The Prince Avenue study area includes an area on either side of the corridor from the intersection of West Dougherty Street with North Hull Street, west to the intersection of Prince Avenue with the Athens Perimeter.
