Urban Redevelopment Plan

(click HERE to download full pdf document)

The purpose of the Dalton Redevelopment Plan is to revitalize historic, but economically depressed neighborhoods throughout the City of Dalton and establish a proactive framework for future growth in these neighborhoods. In recent decades, many of the historic neighborhoods in Dalton have experienced disinvestments and decline. As a result, unfavorable conditions in these neighborhoods have increased to the point where there is a serious threat to the public health, safety and welfare of both current neighborhood residents and the residents of greater Dalton.

Over the past several years, the City of Dalton, Whitfield County, the Dalton-Whitfield Chamber of Commerce, the State of Georgia, and neighborhood groups have begun to tackle this disinvestment through a series of planning studies and initiatives. These initiatives include the 1999 Streetscape Master Plan for Downtown Dalton, and the more comprehensive 2001 Dalton Quality Growth Resource Team Report. In an effort to put these and other initiatives into a comprehensive framework this Dalton Redevelopment Plan entails a plan of action for coordinated redevelopment across a geographically broad, but economically and socially cohesive area.
