City of Statesboro to Host 2nd Community Meeting on Zoning Updates

The City of Statesboro is embarking on a process to update its zoning and other development regulations and combine them into a Unified Development Code that will regulate all new construction in the city. The process is being facilitated by Atlanta-based consultants TSW and is expected to run through mid-2023. The Unified Development Code is an opportunity for the community to update its zoning, subdivision, and development regulations into a single, user-friendly document that supports Statesboro’s current and future needs.

“Communities across Georgia prefer unified development codes because they are easier to use and administer than a bunch of separate, sometimes conflicting documents,” says TSW Project Manager, Caleb Racicot. He adds, “We look forward to working with the Statesboro community to ensure that the regulations and standards within Statesboro’s codes are crafted to meet this community’s unique needs.”

The new regulations will shape the next generation of growth and development in Statesboro, including elements like housing, signage, business growth, and more. Over the course of the next year, several community meetings will be held to gather input from residents, business owners, and anyone else with an interest in development in Statesboro.

The second of these meetings is scheduled for Tuesday, August 9, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. at the Statesboro First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall located at 101 S Main St, Statesboro, GA 30458. The meeting presentation will be recorded and shared on the City’s social media channels as well as on the website.

No changes to regulations will be drafted until community input is gathered. Draft regulations will then be made available for public comment at future meetings. Members of the community who are unable to attend the meeting can also share their input and take a survey here by clicking the “share your input” link at the top of the webpage.
