Comprehensive Plan Update

The Comprehensive Plan is a citywide blueprint for future development activities.

Updating the Plan

The City of Avondale Estates is required to update its Comprehensive Plan every 10 years. The City’s 10-year update is due October 31, 2016. The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is assisting the City, at no cost, with the Comprehensive Plan development, drafting and meetings.

  • The Comprehensive Plan can be used to promote orderly, rational and quality development.
  • Planning can help the City invest its money and time wisely in infrastructure such as streets, parks and other facilities needed to sustain the high quality of life already enjoyed by Avondale Estates residents, and business and property owners.
  • The plan will establish a vision, and implementation measures to make that vision a reality. 

Steering Committee 

As part of this effort, and per an ARC request, the City formed a steering committee to assist in the development of the plans and public presentations. The group consists of representatives from various City boards and commissions, and additional members randomly drawn from a pool of interested residents/business owners.


Public Participation

The Comprehensive Plan covers the entire City. Public participation is exceedingly important for this plan to be successful. Please read the Community Participation Program (PDF), attend the meetings and provide the City with feedback. The City needs the community's ideas, opinions and priorities to ensure that Avondale Estates continues to thrive!
