The Putnam County Board of Commissioners is seeking individuals interested in serving on the Comprehensive Plan Update Steering Committee.  These individuals must be willing to invest time, resources and energy in this project which may run through October 2017.  Members appointed should be representative of a cross section of the community, to include persons from the areas of education, media, business, religion, and community groups.  The responsibilities of this group are to facilitate the entire planning process and help formulate a Joint Comprehensive Plan for Putnam County and the City of Eatonton and to invite and encourage community participation throughout the planning process.  The Comprehensive Plan is intended to be a roadmap for a thriving community, a guidebook for local decisions, and a commitment to the communities’ future.

Interested persons should submit an application to the Putnam County Board of Commissioners, 117 Putnam Drive, Suite A, Eatonton, Georgia 31024. Applications will be accepted until Tuesday, August 30, 2016.  The board application form can be found on the county website at www.putnamcountyga.us (in the “How Do I…” or “Forms & Documents” sections) or by calling 706-485-5826.
