Euchee Creek Greenway Master Plan Columbia County, Georgia - The Jaeger Company produced a greenway master plan for Columbia County, a rapidly developing suburb of Augusta. The Euchee Creek Greenway Master Plan provides specific guidance for the development of nearly 10 miles of creek side trail within the county. Illustrative graphics were created for use in galvanizing community support for this bike and pedestrian corridor and to aid in pursuing grant funding. The proposed trail will traverse wetlands, woodlands and streams while connecting the community’s parks, schools, residences and businesses. The multi-use facility features boardwalks, bridges and observation areas making the trail safe, accessible and enjoyable for a variety of groups and modes of travel. The master plan report records the findings from the study and concludes with a preferred trail route. These tools provide Columbia County with the necessary information and graphics to successfully procure funding, excite the local community and guide development of construction documents.

Francis Marion Trail Strategic Plan: Master Plan for a Heritage Trail, Interpretive Centers, and Revolutionary War Sites 10-Country Region, South Carolina - The Francis Marion Trail Commission contracted with The Jaeger Company to prepare a Strategic Plan to protect and preserve sites associated with Francis Marion across a 10-county area. Bringing Revolutionary War sites and the esteemed General Francis Marion to life in the South Carolina Low Country for local residents and visitors was the primary goal of this Strategic Plan. The plan incorporates recent archaeological findings with additional investigations and research to identify and evaluate 94 Marion-related historic sites in the creation of a regional framework. A system of interpretive centers linked by multi-modal connections promotes site preservation, heritage education, recreation and tourism. Linkages include designated scenic byways along existing roadways, bikeways, and canoe routes, connecting regional and local interpretive centers and the Marion Sites to one another. The creation of the Francis Marion Trail is a multi-disciplinary endeavor that involves the expertise and cooperation of historians, archaeologists, planners, designers, and private citizens.

Athens-Clarke County Corridor Management Program Strategy
Athens-Clarke County, Georgia -
The Jaeger Company (TJC) assisted Athens-Clarke County in the development of a county-wide Corridor Management Program Strategy. The project goals were to: (1) develop a systematic approach to corridor improvement projects; (2) improve and/or maintain the appearance of County corridors; (3) identify gateway opportunities; (4) establish clear expectations for (public and/or private) development of the rights-of-way outside of  travel lanes; and (5) reinforce the character and identity of Athens-Clarke County.  The recommendations, essentially design guidelines along with a process for project prioritization, were presented to the Mayor and the Commission for review and discussion before the final program was developed.

In a follow-up project with the Athens-Clarke County Planning Department, TJC led a series of public workshops as part of a new County Comprehensive Plan. The workshops were designed to: (1) identify appropriate future land uses; (2) describe appropriate characteristics of new and infill design; and (3) recommend planning strategies to achieve the land use and design scenarios along significant corridors within the County.

Each workshop focused on a particular corridor type, such as rural to suburban transitional corridors, with two roadways selected as specific examples for workshop teams to discuss.

Following the completion of the workshops, TJC provided a report summarizing the results and included specific recommendations for the Comprehensive Plan.

McFarland Road/Stoney Point: Livable Cities Initiative Study (LCI) Continuation Forsyth County, Georgia - The Jaeger Company assisted the Forsyth County Planning & Development Department in generating an Overlay District for the McFarland Road/Stoney Point Study Area, an approximately 2,150-acre district experiencing rapid growth.  Components of the plan included an amendment to the County’s Unified Development Code (UDC) written for the McFarland Road/Stoney Point Overlay District and an associated Design Manual. Performance standards, written for the UDC, addressed streetscape design, site design and development, landscape design and open space design criteria. These standards were supported by graphics in the Design Manual, further illustrating the design intent. A goal of the Overlay District is to provide connectivity to a proposed greenway trail along Big Creek through design standards for pedestrian, vehicular and bicycle circulation. The Overlay District also sought to integrate mixed-use development while maintaining the rural character of the area. In meeting these goals, the study area was divided into “Character Areas” as a means of appropriately addressing the design recommendations for the UDC and Design Manual.
