Unified Plan Components
The Unified Plan serves as a guide for future land use and community development decisions in the County through 2030. This single document simultaneously provides the basis for capital investment and land use decisions while allowing the County to continue to receive federal funds from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The Comprehensive Transportation Plan, while coordinated with the Unified Plan, is a stand-alone document, focusing on the transportation network needed to serve current and future development. The Comprehensive Transportation Plan is the reference document providing for the county's transportation funding priorities.
New Challenges - Old Concerns
- The approaching "build out" of the county
- The increasing need for redevelopment
- Increased congestion, but decreased highway funding
- The increasing diversity of the county's population
These new challenges do not mean that older problems have been put to rest:
- Road capacity continues to lag growth
- Housing choices must match the changing needs of our citizens
- Planning for the county and its independent cities needs coordination
- Continue the protection of county waterways, forested areas, and air quality
- Water supply remains the ultimate challenge to sustainable growth
The 2030 Unified Plan addresses these challenges and concerns by creating and evaluating alternative scenarios of the future. These scenarios are very different from each other. Evaluating the impacts of each scenario and predicting how they meet various goals enable us to identify the most desirable, yet achievable, future for Gwinnett County.
