Prattville Kicks Off City-Wide Planning Project

November 12, 2008

Prattville is growing, and growing fast. To manage that growth, Mayor Jim Byard, Jr. and the Prattville City Council recently initiated a new comprehensive planning process – known as “Project Prattville.” The new plan will guide growth in and around the city over the next decade. The public kickoff for this process will take place at the Doster Community Center, 424 S. Northington Street, on Monday, November 17, 2008 at 7:00 p.m.

The Kickoff meeting will be the first of at least four public sessions. The sessions will not only detail the process and the end results, but most importantly, provide citizens with an opportunity to guide and inform the plan. In this first Kickoff meeting, urban planners will present an overview of planning process and feature some of their initial survey work. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to provide their input on such items as what places should be preserved and expanded, traffic congestion and alternatives, and priorities for future development. The planners and staff will be around afterwards to answer questions and conduct one-on-one discussion about the future of Prattville.

Prattville citizens are encouraged to attend and participate in these meetings. Citizen comments and feedback received at these public meetings will be used to shape the final plan, which is expected to be submitted for approval in late 2009.
