Flowery Branch City Council plans to huddle with city officials Saturday to discuss the big picture on issues — such as a possible housing boom — facing the South Hall city.
“It’s just a day to get staff and council basically on the same page, prioritizing where we see the city going … for the next 5 to 10 years,” Mayor Mike Miller said.
The planning retreat’s timing coincides with proposals before the council and residential development plans that could bring hundreds of homes to the downtown area.
“Everything is hitting at the same time and we’re a small city,” Miller said.
The event, set for 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Flowery Branch Depot, 5302 Railroad Ave., also includes a redevelopment presentation by Duluth City Manager James Riker, former Flowery Branch city planner.
