As the region’s metropolitan planning organization, the ARC doesn’t necessarily endorse the ideas presented. Rather, the idea is to lend a stage to interesting thinking by experts on topics like economics, mobility and urban design.
ARC Executive Director Doug Hooker noted at the State of the Region event that this metro “must work hard, stay focused and collaborate.”
Given how quickly ideas that seem far-outside-the-box can zip toward mainstream reality in today’s fast-moving world, we applaud this effort to look ahead and embrace the future’s opportunities and challenges. Atlanta certainly can’t afford to fall behind in this regard.
