Per Section 11-52-8 of the Code of Alabama 1975, as amended, each city's Planning Commission must make a master plan for the physical development of the community and adopt it in whole or in part. The City of Athens has chosen to take an incremental approach to its planning program, beginning with "A Vision for Athens: A Future Land Use and Development Plan" (PDF) as the overarching vision for the future development of the community. As time passes, the City will produce additional plans (transportation, recreation, utilities, etc.) that, when taken together, comprise a master planning effort. Each plan will be located on this page after adoption and available for download as a PDF.
