In September 2016, the City kicked off the rewrite of its Community Sustainability Plan. Updated every five years, the plan lays out the vision and priorities for the City in the upcoming years. After two series of public meetings and lots of work on our end, the draft of the plan is available for review. 


The plan in its entirety is attached to this page for review. List any comments you may have, whether they are editorial or content based, in the comment section. Comments will be accepted until Friday, May 5. 


There will also be two opportunities to meet with us to discuss the draft. Staff will be at the City Building on Saturday, April 22 at 1 PM. We will also be holding an open house on Tuesday, April 25 at 6:30 PM at Edward M. Felegy Elementary School . 


If you have any questions, please contact Katie Gerbes at or 301-985-5059. 

I apologize for not addressing specific items in this plan but I wanted to outline a few concerns I have regarding sustainability. With more development slated along the route 1 corridor, we need to start planning now for increased traffic volume. I would endorse ideas like a traffic circle at Jefferson & Route 1. Long term I think we also need to designate some retail areas as "pedestrian only." I also hope that redesigns of parks and new development will include features that can be used by the general public like splash fountains and performance platforms. Finally... I want to register my support for demolishing the current municipal building, moving the police to BB&T, relocating the Council and other staff in the county-owned building next door, and making that part of Gallatin a pedestrian walkway with retail space replacing the municipal building.
