March-April, 2012 Tybee Island Corridor Charrette

C-2 Zoning District / Arts, Eats, Eco-Business Corridor

The Coastal Regional Commission (CRC) is a multi-faceted agency which provides local and regional comprehensive planning services to local governments as well as specialized planning services. The CRC and their design team, Prosser Hallock, hosted a 3-day charette in early April to engage stakeholders (residents, property owners and business owners who live and work within and adjacent to the corridor) to examine issues and obtain consensus related to zoning, land use and compatibility within the C-2 Zoning District/Arts, Eats, Eco-Business Corridor on Tybee Island. The overall goal was to obtain consensus related to the approach in improving land uses and compatibility within the C-2 Zoning District/Arts, Eats, Eco-Business Corridor.

A production video of the presentation and final discussions has been put in the Comcast cable access channel schedule. If you do not get Comcast, you can request a DVD of the video by calling the City Clerk, Jan Leviner, at ext, 103. DVD duplication fee is $10 *or* you may view it on YouTube.

Short Term Work Plan

In order to maintain Qualified Local Government (QLG) status every local government in Georgia must have an approved and adopted Short Term Work Program (PDF) (STWP) for implementation of their Master Plan. The STWP outlines and schedules specific actions that the City intends to take to address the needs and goals identified in the plan. In short, the STWP is the “to-do” list that resulted from the Master Plan process.
