What is Thomasville: Blueprint 2028?
Thomasville: Blueprint 2028 is a comprehensive plan for the city. A comprehensive plan sets the tone of a city’s growth and development for the next twenty to thirty years. Your input and feedback are instrumental as the future of Thomasville is envisioned.
What is a Comprehensive Plan?
The City of Thomasville has begun an initiative to craft a comprehensive plan that will build upon several visioning and strategic planning sessions throughout the community. Known as Thomasville: Blueprint 2028, the City’s comprehensive plan will provide the basis for regulations and policies that guide our community’s physical and economic development. Thomasville: Blueprint 2028 will establish priorities for public action and direction for complementary private decisions concerning land use and development, historic and cultural resources, environmental and natural resources, economic development, municipal services, transportation, recreation, housing and priority investments.

Fall 2017 Update
During the week of September 18-22, 2017, more than 600 Thomasville citizens took part in community design workshops to help craft Thomasville’s future. Throughout the week, a series of charrette activities were held that included a kick-off and hands-on design session, open design studio sessions, lectures and technical meetings on topics including community design and character, mobility and health, housing, the Roses site, civic services, and more. Audience response technology was also utilized during key sessions to ask specific questions regarding design elements and gain immediate feedback from participants. All of the information gathered was compiled into a work-in-progress presentation that is available here.
The comprehensive planning process will continue, and feedback and public input is always welcome. The next steps will include a staff presentation later this year and a draft presentation to the public next spring. For more information, contact Brian Herrmann, City Planner, at 227-4118.
