Comprehensive Plan

Welcome to the webpage for the Comprehensive Plan for Morgan County and the communities of Bostwick, Buckhead, and Rutledge!

Background on Comprehensive Plans

A comprehensive plan is a locally adopted document that serves as a long-term guide to growth and development for a local government to use and implement. The document is required by the State of Georgia for all local governments and must be updated every five (5) years.


The purpose of the plan is to analyze where you are now as a community, where you are going, to develop ideas for where you want to be, and create strategies for how to get you there.


There are various topics addressed within a comprehensive plan including, but not limited to, community needs and opportunities, community goals, land-use, broadband internet, transportation, and a list of community work items.
