Your region, your future: Tell us what you want at spring Neighborhood ForumsImagine yourself 30 years from now. Where will you live? How will you get around? Hard to say, right? Most people reading this will be between the ages of 55 and 95 (knock on wood…), and it would be reassuring to think that in 2040, we will be living in an Atlanta region that offers a high quality of life for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren, with plenty of options for places to live, things to do and ways to get to wherever we need to go.
That’s the point of Plan 2040, the comprehensive land use and transportation plan in the works at the Atlanta Regional Commission for more than a year. The Civic League and ARC have visited communities across the region to find out how you want your region to grow, and this spring we’ll be back on the road, giving you an opportunity to preview the plan and offer one last round of comments. We’ll also be looking more specifically toward the future of regional transportation. This is a hot topic at the federal, state, regional and local levels, and it’s critical that metro Atlanta maintain a steady flow of citizen input so policymakers can make more informed decisions that truly represent the wishes of the people they serve.
