Cherokee County seeking public input on overlay zoning district along Highway 20

CANTON, GA (Dec. 15, 2023) – Cherokee County will be seeking public input just after the New Year regarding an overlay zoning district along Highway 20, from Canton to Forsyth County.

The Cherokee County Planning and Zoning Department will launch a visual preference survey for the corridor starting on Jan. 2. The survey comes in response to the Georgia Department of Transportation’s SR 20 Corridor Widening Project.

“The visual preference survey is a key element for residents and stakeholders to influence the design vision for the corridor,” said Director of Planning & Zoning Margaret Stallings. “The survey will include comparative images allowing participants to contribute to the area’s potential development. It’s also important to note that the overlay will not modify existing zoning districts but will establish a unique design standard for the corridor.”

An online visual preference survey for the east side of Highway 20 from Canton Marketplace to the Forsyth County line will open starting Jan. 2 and run through Feb. 16. The county is also planning in-person public input meetings during the process set for Jan. 18 and Feb. 7, from 6-7:30 p.m. The in-person meetings will be held in Victory Hall of the L.B. “Buzz” Ahrens Recreation Center, located at 7345 Cumming Hwy., Canton and are intended for citizens to drop in, take the survey and to ask questions regarding the survey or the overlay.

Once the survey is open, a live link will be provided on the county website. To participate in the shaping the future of the SR 20 Corridor, visit
