Round 2 (June 2023)

UGA/VGA Recalibration

In this round, we updated our process for reviewing existing growth area boundaries and presented our preliminary findings. We also asked participants to confirm remaining buildable land within existing growth areas, identify sites for redevelopment, and share any other relevant information to help us propose boundary changes for consideration this fall.

Housing Subcommittee

As part of our 12-step growth area recalibration process, we formed a subcommittee of local housing experts. This group is providing data, discussing the residential mix we’d like to see in growth areas, and helping us address common myths about housing.
