Downtown Mcdonough Livable Communities Initiative Action Plan and Smartcode

McDonough, GA

The Lawrence Group provided a strategic action plan intended to create a road map for a prosperous downtown area in McDonough, GA. The final report represents a strategic five-year plan for organizing, promoting, designing, and retention/recruitment that will position McDonough to revitalize the Town Square and the downtown area. A form based code for the area was also prepared as a companion document by Lawrence Group. The code is intended to completely replace the current zoning standards for the area and help focus on the construction of human-friendly civic realms that include pedestrian and bike friendly streetscapes, lively shopfront, and range of housing choices in close proximity to walkable, urban centers.
