The map of the city of Lithia Springs created jointly by the city and Douglas County in the 1990s is the starting point of the analysis for this area.
Based on stakeholder feedback and the logical boundaries offered by existing streets, the project boundary was expanded. This area is contemplated as the “Historic Lithia Springs” Character Area. Recommendations for an expanded “Greater Lithia Springs” Character Area are also contemplated as a part of this study.
At the heart of this assessment is a parcel-by-parcel evaluation of the existing built footprint of the Lithia Springs area. The study area includes approximately 1,919 acres and 2,085 parcels. Douglas County overall is 128,640 acres and 54,553 parcels.
An assessment of greenfield, greyfield and brownfield development opportunities also pointed to the potential for new development.
The Lithia Springs area, and the greater Highway 78 corridor, have examples of all of these. And even though greenfield, greyfield, and brownfield parcels may co-exist side-by-side, a development approach needs to be tailored to the unique characteristics of the site.
