Modifications Proposed to Area Plan

During their April 23 public workshop, the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission discussed several potential Modifications to the draft Historic River-to-Ridge Area Plan. They will vote on those proposed Modifications during another special PUBLIC meeting on May 18 at 11:00 AM.

As of May 1, this meeting is scheduled to be online.  Login instructions can be found below.
