Athens 2040 is the City of Athens’ Comprehensive Plan update process. The City has hired a multidisciplinary team of planning consultants led by Town Planning & Urban Design Collaborative, LLC (TPUDC) to engage the community in a public planning process that will culminate in the adoption of a new Comprehensive Plan for the City.
