2023 Oconee County Comprehensive Plan Update

Oconee County Government is embarking on a five-year update to its Comprehensive Plan, to be completed in 2023. The update will include information on and for the City of Watkinsville.

Community members are asked to respond to this online survey available through Thursday, September 1, 2022. Responses will help planners identify issues that are important to the community and that should be addressed in the Comprehensive Plan. 

The Comprehensive Plan is Oconee County’s  road map for the future. This official, living, county-wide plan is a public document that provides long-range policy direction for land use, transportation, economic development, housing, public facilities, intergovernmental agreements, and natural resources. 

It serves as a guide for elected and public officials by providing the framework for evaluating development proposals. Included in the Comprehensive Plan are strategies for program funding for local government services.
