Thomasville Blueprint 2028 will be recommended to city council

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville residents got a look at the final plans for Blueprint 2028 for the first time Tuesday night.

Our partners at the Thomasville Times-Enterprise reports that this project represents one of the largest public engagement initiatives ever by the city.

The plan has been in the works for well over a year and will be presented in a few short weeks at a July 23 city council meeting where the council will decide whether to adopt the plan or not.

The objective of the comprehensive plan is to help keep Thomasville as a place where people want to live and work, as well as attract visitors.

So, with the help of Dover, Kohl and Partners and other agencies, they are finding ways to make Thomasville a place where people can safely and easily walk and ride their bike throughout the city, preserve the historic nature of the town along with many other projects.

After Tuesday's meeting, the Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously accepted the plan, which will now be recommended to the Thomasville City Council.

Those that attended the meeting were all in favor of the plan.

There were no opposing views.
