The City of Roswell is creating its 2040 Comprehensive Plan. This plan will provide long-range policy direction for land use, transportation, economic development, housing, public facilities, inter-governmental agreements, and natural/cultural resources. The process involves a variety of stakeholders including elected officials, city staff, a comprehensive plan advisory committee, regulatory agencies, a consultant team led by Pond & Company, and the general public. The comprehensive plan advisory committee will assist in collecting and discussing public input and help formulate the plan.
