The City of Anniston will hold two public meetings in coming weeks as part of its comprehensive planning process.

On Sept. 9, there will be a “charette” or planning workshop in which members of the public will work together in small groups before presenting their ideas to the comprehensive planning team. The meeting will be from 5-8 p.m. at the Anniston City Meeting Center, 1615 Noble St.

On Sept. 13, the comprehensive planning team will present a concept plan to the public, then take questions from the public. The meeting will be from 5-7 p.m. at the Anniston City Meeting Center.

Masks are required for both events. Social distancing and sanitizing guidelines will be followed.

The city has contracted with Walker Collaborative, a Tennessee firm, to develop the plan.

State law requires that cities the size of Anniston and larger have such a plan, but city officials say Anniston hasn’t gone through the full comprehensive planning process in several years.
