This survey is part of a project undertaken by the City of Covington, in partnership with Georgia Conservancy, to understand and assess Covington's ongoing housing needs. This information will be used to inform a land use study along 6 major corridors in Covington, including but not limited to U.S. Highway 278, Washington St, and Jackson Highway. Your feedback is critical for the success of this project and to help the City of Covington provide a place where everyone can thrive.
