In November 2017, the Barnesville City Council adopted a new Comprehensive Plan. The purpose of a Comprehensive Plan is to aid in the decision making of Barnesville’s elected officials and to guide City staff. Stakeholder groups were utilized to understand the thoughts and feelings of Barnesville residents on a variety of issues. In addition, a public survey was conducted to gain input from residents from a broad base of perspectives. For questions about the Barnesville Comprehensive Plan contact City Administrator Mike Rietz at 218.354.2292.
