Planning for the Future
June 2007, leaders in Troup County and the cities of LaGrange,
West Point, and Hogansville kicked off a
two-year strategic planning initiative to create a framework for sustainable
development. The goal of the effort is to develop innovative strategies for
promoting quality growth, fostering healthy economic development, enhancing
the quality of life of residents, and protecting Troup County’s
natural environment, sense of place, and community. Troup County
leadership wants to preserve and enhance places for area residents and
businesses by proactively, progressively and creatively directing the
community’s growth and development to shape its future.
Georgia Tech – through its Enterprise Innovation
Institute (EI2) and Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development
(CQGRD) – conducted research, assessments, and strategy development in
support of this initiative. The following documents and series of reports
were produced in 2008 in concert with these efforts.
