Comp Plan Title Image

The City of Woodstock is working on a new Comprehensive Plan that will help guide the City’s vision of Woodstock in the year 2040. This vision will be used by the City Council and staff as they make decisions for the City in the future.


The Comprehensive Plan must be adopted by the City Council by October 31, 2018 for the City to retain Qualified Local Government (QLG) Status with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA). In order to accomplish this, the schedule below is designed so that a draft version of the plan is prepared in late Spring 2018 so that DCA and other regulatory agencies have time to review and provide comments.

Three community open houses are scheduled at strategic points in the planning process. These meetings will be designed to inform the community on progress on the Plan and solicit comments and thoughts as the Plan develops.

Comprehensive Town Plan 2030

The mayor and City Council of the City of Woodstock adopted the Comprehensive Town Plan 2030 on April 28, 2008.

Livable Centers Initiative

The Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) is a program offered by the Atlanta Regional Commission that encourages local jurisdictions to plan and implement strategies that link transportation improvements with land use development strategies to create sustainable, livable communities consistent with regional development policies.

Planning grants are awarded on a competitive basis to local governments and nonprofit organizations to prepare plans for the enhancement of existing centers and corridors, taking advantage of the infrastructure and private investments committed in these communities and achieving more balanced regional development, reducing vehicle miles traveled and improving air quality. The City of Woodstock completed the downtown LCI plan in 2002 and received funds to enhance Main Street through the city's central business district.
