2030 Comprehensive Plan

FDM Exercise-thumbRoswell's 2030 Comprehensive Plan was adopted by the Mayor and City Council in 2010, after review by the Atlanta Regional Commission and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.

A Future Development Map is included in the Plan and serves as a graphic representation of the type of development that the City desires for the 2030 planning horizon. This map identifies different character areas of the City and is accompanied by a narrative description of each area which includes a vision/intent, design principles and goals. The Future Land Use map that accompanies the 2030 Comprehensive Plan can be obtained through the GIS Division.
