Corridor Studies in progress - Comprehensive Plan Update (Guide Smyrna), Spring Road Corridor LCI Study and South Cobb Drive Corridor Redevelopment Study

Your input and feedback throughout the process for both studies is important and will help create a shared vision for both important corridors. Look for announcements of upcoming meetings and other opportunities on the event listing for this website (on the home page) and other communications channels such as Facebook and Twitter.

  • Comprehensive Plan Update / Guide Smyrna 2040 - The City of Smyrna, beginning in February 2017, is updating the Comprehensive Plan. The process is referred to as "Guide Smyrna." Guide Smyrna is the community-based planning process for updating the City of Smyrna's Comprehensive Plan which is the overarching policy and implementation guide for future growth and development. The process will focus on future land use and also address transportation, housing, and economic development, core issues that shape our collective future and require open dialogue and strategic thinking to affect change over the next 20 years. Guide Smyrna will build upon the overall vision set by the 2014 Vision Plan as well as land use policy established in our existing 2030 Comprehensive Plan (adopted in 2007) and other City of Smyrna planning efforts.
