Client: City of Roswell, Pond Company
Location: Roswell, Georgia
Status: Completed in 2016
Comprehensive Plan Updated to guide land use and transportation decisions
Inclusive community participation program with multiple opportunities for involvement and input
TSW assisted Pond & Company on completing Imagine Roswell 2035, an update to the Imagine Roswell 2030 Comprehensive Plan. TSW focused on land use analysis and recommendations for future land use and key activity areas. The plan, prepared under DCA’s new set of rules, summarizes what is happening in the city, as well as the most significant trends, and the City’s plans for the future.
The effort included an extensive Community Participation Plan that focused on bringing together a significant number of citizens, business owners, and other stakeholders for public meetings, a three-day charrette, a follow-up workshop (with nearly 150 people in attendance), and draft and final plan presentations.
With the support of the Mayor and the Council, this plan provides a user-friendly, practical document that establishes the foundation for modernizing the zoning ordinance and integrating transportation planning with future land development, based on design principles. Most recently, this plan allowed the City to become recognized as a “PlanFirst” community by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.
