Coastal Georgia enjoys the most undeveloped coastline along the entire eastern seaboard of the United States. The beautiful coast and rich history attract millions of visitors every year. In addition, the coastal region is rapidly growing in rate of development as well. The primary goal of the City of Riceboro's Master Plan for Future Growth and Development is to prepare the community for the impacts of population growth. This plan also seeks to create continuity within Liberty County while maintaining a unique sense of identity that is true to the City of Riceboro's history and inherent Gullah Geechee culture.
The development of this Master Plan was guided by a Steering Committee as appointed by the City Council, with additional input from the community as a whole. A community survey was conducted to supplement community meetings, the results of which can be found in the Appendix. The recommendations developed in this Master Plan were developed within the framework of the identified community vision, goals, and objectives. The recommendations also incorporate input obtained from public meetings and working closely with city officials and other stakeholders.
This Master Plan was completed in January 2011. It seeks to set forth the shared vision of the community and to provide recommendations and action items on how to achieve that vision. This is the first step on a long journey… a journey that will take time, commitment, and patience.
The Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission is responsible for county-wide land use actions for our eight governmental entities in Liberty County.
