The work scope for the Unified Plan specified the project's many different tasks and how and by whom they were to be accomplished. Although it is a highly detailed document, the overall framework of the Unified Plan process is quite simple. The Georgia Department of Community Affairs requires that each local comprehensive plan include:
- A Community Assessment
- A Community Participation Program (PDF)
- A Community Agenda
The work scope for the Unified Plan was structured to address all three of these required components.
