As part of Chatham County’s comprehensive plan development process, the Planning Department invites residents to play the Growth Chip Game as a way to provide feedback on various aspects of future county planning. The deadline to play is Dec. 1.
You can find a link to the Growth Chip Game and instructions at: www.planchatham.com. Using this game, participants can weigh in on important transportation areas, appropriate land uses and types of development, desired locations for parks and where natural resources should be preserved.
When you visit the webpage, you will see a link to access the interactive map for the Growth Chip Game. There is second link to detailed instructions and what the map icons mean. The game works best on a tablet or a computer. A smart phone works but the screen size will make it very hard to view important elements.
Once you are on the map page, click the EDIT button in the top left corner to get started. You will be able to place various types of chips on the map. You also can add a comment in the description field to offer more information on how the county should grow.
