  • 11. Strategy • Continue to enrich cluster around industrial complex – Explore supporting sectors: transportation, warehousing, etc • Continue to adapt to consumer demand – Keeps population & attracts new residents – Improves tax digest
  • 12. Population Growth Concerns: • The existing economy for Houston County is heavily dependent on government employment, particularly Robins Air Force Base, and the retail trade and service industries necessary for its survival. • Despite representing a relatively small percentage of the total employment, manufacturing industries contribute significantly to Houston County’s economy
  • 13. Transportation Means of Transportation to Work White Black or African American American Indian and Alaska Native Asian Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander Some Other Race Hispanic or Latino (any race) Estimate Estimate Estimate Estimate Estimate Estimate Estimate Estimate Total: 29,798 16,727 10,534 28 701 64 1,275 2,504 Car, truck, or van - drove alone 24,539 14,364 8,484 8 593 57 649 1,654 Car, truck, or van - carpooled 4,167 1,756 1,622 20 88 0 626 804 Public transportation (excluding taxicab) 62 13 39 0 10 0 0 0 Walked 356 169 157 0 0 0 0 30 Taxicab, motorcycle, bicycle, or other means 322 217 98 0 0 7 0 0 Worked at home 352 208 134 0 10 0 0 16 • This has two implications, one the residents are under utilizing the public means of transports and/or the walkways. The second implication could be that there is not enough public transportation options available to the residents and/or the public walkways are also not being maintain at a standard where they may be utilized as a means of transportation. • Both result in the need to expand and upgrade their water/sewer and transportation infrastructure in order to keep pace with the demand for new commercial and industrial development
  • 14. Housing and Population • Owner vacancy rate was a low 2.1% in 2000; while the renter vacancy rate was 11.2%. Both rates were higher than the State of Georgia and the nation. This is an indicator of the transient nature of the population due to the large workforce at RAFB. • With the exception of the working low/moderate income households, as mentioned above, the county’s lower than average housing costs, combined with the higher than average vacancy rates, plus above average household wages indicate sufficient affordable housing is available within Houston County.
  • 15. Housing • The number of housing units in Houston County increased from 27,397 to 44,509 between 1980 and 2000. The 17,112 units that were constructed during this period represent a 38% increase. • Approximately two-thirds of the housing units in 2000 were single-family detached. Manufactured homes more than doubled from 1980 to 2000 and represented 12.9% of the total housing units in the County. • Multi-family homes represented only 13.8% of the County’s housing stock.
  • 16. Land Use Concern • Lack of definable downtown area or town center in Warner Robins and Centerville. • Agricultural/forestry land is gradually succumbing to urban-type development. • The number and quality of the signs in the County is becoming an increasing concern. Opportunity • Establishing redevelopment strategies for the older strip commercial areas that correspond with the overall neighborhood redevelopment plan. • Taking advantage of new state program to acquire land to set aside for conservation and open space purposes or for the development of greenways, particularly in major wetland and floodplain areas.
