Initiation of Burke County Joint Comprehensive Plan

Burke County and the jurisdictions of the Town of Girard, City of Keysville, City of Sardis, City of Midville, City of Vidette, and City of Waynesboro will each hold a public hearing to announce the start of the creation of the new Burke County Joint Comprehensive Plan.  Although the plan will be a joint plan, each jurisdiction will have their own Community Work Program, therefore separate public hearings will invite public input.   A Community Survey will be available for public input.

Further information about the plan process and meeting schedule will be available.  Residents wishing to comment or make suggestions should be in attendance. Following are the places and times set for each Public Hearing:
