Planning Success Stories

TitleExampleMore Information
Wadley CDBF-Funded Infrastructure Improvements

At the time of Wadley's last full comprehensive plan, the city's sewer system was literally crumbling, with numerous clay pipes that had cracked or broken. This resulted in blockages, pooling water and stormwater infiltration, which created excessive flows into treatment facilities. The problem was identified as a priority in the joint Jefferson County comprehensive plan of 2004 and has been included in updates, most recently the city's 2013 short-term work program.

Since then, the city has successfully applied for $1 million in CDBG funds, which it has used for a major overhaul of the sewer system. This has directly benefited hundreds of Wadley residents and, more broadly, has improved the city's economic prospects and water quality regionally.
