Mondays with the Mayor: Planning & Conservation

This week, Mayor Kim Learnard talks about the new effort to update Peachtree City's unified development ordinance; a process that hasn't happened in nearly four decades.

Learnard also shares highlights from the second annual Coweta/Fayette municipal summit. Senior officials from the cities of Brooks, Fayetteville, Newnan, Senoia, Sharpsburg, Tyrone, and Woolsey met to discuss regional approaches to common challenges.

Peachtree City Hosts Municipal Summit

with Coweta, Fayette Mayors

Mayors and other senior officials from across the Coweta/Fayette region sat down for a conversation about collaboration this week.

Representatives from Brooks, Fayetteville, Newnan, Senoia, Sharpsburg, Tyrone, and Woolsey chatted about similar challenges facing their communities, and how we all can work together to develop solutions that benefit all our residents.

Officials heard from the Southern Conservation Trust about their organization's work in Coweta and Fayette counties. Katherine Zitsch, with the Atlanta Regional Commission, briefed the summit on the Flint River water basin too.

The water basin provides drinking water for Peachtree City and most of Fayette and Coweta. Zitsch's presentation emphasized conversation efforts and how to maintain Flint River as a resource for the region.
