The Planning Commission unanimously recommended approval of the Comprehensive Plan Amendment during their January 4, 2022, meeting. On January 24, 2022, the Johns Creek City Council approved the integration of Town Center Vision into the Comprehensive Plan. The amended Comprehensive Plan will be sent to the Atlanta Regional Commission for formal recognition.

According to City documents, in 2020, the City Council reviewed and approved a revised Town Center Plan study boundary and affirmed that the goal of the Town Center Plan is to establish appropriate land uses linear park designs, street and multi-modal networks, and streetscape standards in an effort to create a sense of place. After one year of community engagement and with assistance from the Technical Advisory Committee tasked with the document’s preparation and development, the Town Center Vision and Plan was adopted unanimously by the Mayor and Council on October 25, 2021.

The adopted Town Center Vision and Plan identified amending the Comprehensive Plan as a prioritized action item to formally integrate the plan as the vision document to allow for future development to consider the appropriate context and future land use and to provide guidance to Council on future zoning decisions for properties within the Town Center. The approved Comprehensive Plan amendment also revises any conflicting language between the Comprehensive Plan and Town Center Plan for the Tech Park Character Area.
