LCI open house Monday at Carnegie Library

by Sarah Fay Campbell

A drop-in open house meeting on the city of Newnan’s Livable Centers Initiative study will be held Monday from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Carnegie Library.

Anyone interested in the future of the downtown Newnan area and its surrounding neighborhoods is invited to attend.

This is the third of four public meetings for the study. Consultants working on the study will be displaying some of the ideas that have been generated from the previous workshops, interviews with stakeholders, and the online survey that was done a few months ago, said Tracy Dunnavant, planning and zoning director for the city of Newnan.

“We’re welcoming people who have been involved in the process all along, as well as new people,” Dunnavant said.

There won’t be a formal presentation, but there will be displays, and attendees can ask questions of consultants and city staff.

Citizen feedback will help the city and consultants “know if we are going in the right direction,” Dunnavant said, and whether or not the ideas are something that residents support for the future of the downtown area.

“We are hoping for another great turnout,” Dunnavant said. “Our downtown is a remarkable place and we need the public’s help in developing a solid plan to ensure that it remains that way.”

The Carnegie is at 1 LaGrange St. at the Court Square.
