The City of Chattahoochee, in partnership with the Apalachee Regional Planning Council, is currently in the final stages of developing a new streetscape improvement concept plan for U.S. 90 (Washington Street) in downtown Chattahoochee. Development of this concept plan, which is an established goal of Chattahoochee’s Strategic Community Vision Plan, is funded through a Community Planning Technical Assistance Grant awarded by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO). Two public workshops were held on November 19 and February 18 to receive community input on the elements to be included in the concept plan.
On Tuesday, April 7, the preferred concept plan was presented to the City Council. The preferred concept is based on all community input received since inception of the project, as well as guidance from the Florida Department of Transportation, Capital Region Transportation Planning Agency (CRTPA), the Florida Dept. of State’s Division of Historical Resources, and other federal, state, and local organizations. These presentation materials are available for download here for public viewing. Any questions or comments can be sent directly to Ben Chandler at the Apalachee Regional Planning Council. The deadline for comments is April 24, 2020. Submit your questions and comments by email to [email protected].
Once comments are received, they will be incorporated into the preferred design, as appropriate, and will be presented to the City Council for adoption on May 5, 2020. Once adopted, the concept plan will serve as the foundation of future engineering design plans suitable for construction.
