Downtown Master Plan Update

The City of Sugar Hill was awarded a Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) grant by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) to prepare a major update to the current downtown master plan.  The city’s LCI plan was critical to advancing our vision toward a vibrant walkable community in Downtown Sugar Hill. Working through a comprehensive update provided an opportunity to take stock of community investment over the last few years and connect recent successes.  This is an important time to check our progress and set new goals for the next ten years of development.  Through the plan update city leaders made informed planning decisions based on actual on-the-ground conditions, development trends, real estate dynamics, and mobility needs. The plan focused on the expansion of the downtown core, housing needs, pedestrian and bike mobility strategies, as well as potential land use policy updates to achieve the envisioned development character.

The plan has now been adopted by City Council, but you can see the previous project schedule here: Click here for the project schedule..
