Your chance to shape metro Atlanta's future

Want a say in how metro Atlanta develops in coming decades? You’ll have a chance at a series of upcoming meetings.

The Atlanta Regional Commission is seeking input as it updates its long-range plan for development in the region. The plan touches on the transportation and other investments needed to shape the region’s future.

The agency will hold six open houses in coming weeks to solicit input. You’ll have a chance to explore the region’s future with hands-on activities and learn about key regional issues like advances in transportation technology and efforts to preserve affordable housing. You’ll also be able to search an online database to learn about transportation projects planned for the next 30 years.
