Planning Success Stories

TitleExampleMore Information
Newton County Leadership Collaborative

As early as their 1998 comprehensive plan, Newton County and its municipalities determined that decisions on important things like school location and location of infrastructure should be made in a communal manner, with all the various impacted entities working together to achieve decisions that are best for the community as a whole. Newton County and its municipalities used their comprehensive planning process as a springboard for launching the “Leadership Collaborative” where local government and private sector leadership meet regularly to discuss issues, agree on solutions, and ensure that the comprehensive plan is being implemented. This has yielded a string of successes, including vibrant economic growth and designation as a WaterFirst community for their innovative approach to management of water resources. info@thecenter-newton.org
