Public input was recieved via a new survey tool provided by the ARC as well as by two public meetings held on-line.

Council voted to adopt the Final Report in a resolution adopted on 10/12/2021.


Rockbridge Road Economic Development Plan

In September of 2018 an Economic Development Task Force was formed by the Mayor and Council. In April, 2019, after several months of study, numerous site visits to other municipalities and collection of public input through a comprehensive survey, the task force presented to the Mayor and Council an Economic Development Vision and Plan.

The task force further developed a plan for initiatives to be undertaken during the 12 months starting July 1st, 2019 and running through June 30, 2020.

In September of 2019 the task force was transitioned into Rockbridge Opportunities Kick Start or "ROKS". This permanent group will move forward with the implementation of the 2019 / 2020 plan and develop a new plans to be implemented each year moving forward.

Annexation Plans

Update: In 2018 Council determined that rather than concentrating on annexation we would put that energy into improving the Rockbridge Commercial Corridor. All annexation plans except for tw properties on Rockbridge road were tabled for the foreseeable future.

In April 2017 after conducting two Town Hall meetings to discuss the pros and cons of annexation, a Work Group was formed of residents and Council members to make a recommendation to Council on how to proceed. The Work group presented a three phase plan to Council at the August 14th meeting and at the August 29th meeting the Annexation Plan and Map was approved unanimously.

Starting in Q1 of 2018 we will begin an Annexation Study for the 1st phase mapped out in the plan, with the intention of getting legislative support to present a bill to the 2019 Georgia Legislative Session.
