Macon-Bibb looking twenty years into the future

MACON, Georgia (41NEWS/WMGT) – The Shoppes At River Crossing were partly born out of Macon-Bibb county planning and zoning meetings just like the one held Tuesday evening.

Jim Thomas, Executive Director Planning and Zoning Commission said, “Planning sets up the groundwork. That’s what we did with the Shoppes At River Crossing 10 years ago. We plan for the future the land-use and it happened.”

The gathering focused on what Macon-Bibb should look like 20 years from now.
A Steering Committee made up of local citizens will give their input.

Dr. Vickie Perdue Scott told us, “Educational opportunities for young people as it relates to healthcare community development that’s what I expect to see in Macon-Bibb county in the next 20 years.”

The purpose of the public hearing is to brief the community on the process to develop plans.
Macon-Iibb is set to move forward.

Thomas added, “I hope to see and improved transportation infrastructure improved land-use incentivize land use where we want it and restrictions where we do not.”

Just like it was more than a decade ago to make the Shoppes At River Crossing a reality, public input is key to the growth of Macon-Bibb.
