As the City of Sandy Springs enters its second decade, it is time to look ahead and beyond. How should we grow, develop and get around? What will be the character of Sandy Springs in the future? How can we continue to thrive? The Next Ten is a citywide dialogue that kicked off in 2015 to answer such important questions.

On February 21, 2017, the City of Sandy Springs adopted its updated Comprehensive Plan, the City’s guiding policy framework for growth and development. Concurrently, the City adopted detailed, geographically-specific Small Area Plans for four areas. 

The City now is in the process of updating its  zoning and subdivision regulations through the preparation of a new Sandy Springs Development Code, which will combine zoning with subdivision and other related development regulations into a single document. Combining all City development regulations into a single, easy-to-use document will bring the code in alignment with the policy priorities articulated by the Comprehensive Plan while adding certainty and order to the development review process.
