Augusta Sustainable Development Agenda Projects

Augusta-Richmond County commissioned a $500,000 study that divides the city into urban, suburban and rural character areas, designates "strategic action corridors" for immediate action, creates an extensive best-practices policy agenda and devises "prototype projects" for each of the areas. Here's a look at the 11 projects.
