Planning Workshop #2

Nov. 10, 2016

Planning WorkshopAt this meeting  which was held November 10, 2016 at 7PM at City Hall including taking the goals formulated by the Citizen Advisory Committee and analyzed them in detail. These goals were directly created from the SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis done in Planning Workshop #1. In Planning Workshop #2 each community member was part of a group which ranked the goals (1-19) in order of importance to Johns Creek. The Project Team explained that it is important to create a priority list of milestones the community would like to reach in the next twenty years. As the comprehensive planning process can get overwhelming this helps a community focus on what is most important to their future. The results of this exercise will be posted on our Public Outreach page. A group leader from each table read their rankings out loud. The Project Team recorded them and tallied a composite list.

Planning WorkshopOur second exercise was to review the character areas from the previous plan done in 2008. Each table reviewed a packet highlighting the areas goals and qualities. Groups were split between consolidating some of the 12 character areas and preserving them. The public used trace paper to draw over the character area maps to identify consolidations and also to start thinking about nodes or village center locations. These drawings will be uploaded to the Public Outreach page with results. Please attend our community workshop in January. A schedule will be posted soon and we hope to see many members of the Johns Creek community in attendance!
