Upcoming Important Meetings


There are several very important meetings coming up in the next few weeks. We cannot emphasize the importance of your attendance. These issues are not singularly isolated issues. They are all interrelated and tied together, one way or another.

First is a Pickens County Planning Commission meeting.

The final draft of the Comprehensive Plan is to be reviewed.

We need to be there and get our eyes on it!

A link for your perusal:
