ARC Pop-Up Open House @ Conyers Rockdale Arts Council
Oct 15 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Atlanta Regional Commission will be holding a series of pop-up open houses Oct. 4 – Nov. 2 that offer an engaging, interactive way for residents to provide input on a major update to the Atlanta Region’s Plan, the region’s long-range blueprint that details the investments needed to ensure metro Atlanta’s future success.

The Atlanta Region’s Plan incorporates a range of planning and programmatic elements, including transportation, community development, natural resources, workforce development and aging & independence services. The plan aims to improve mobility, create vibrant, walkable communities, ensure a clean, abundant water supply, and meet the needs of the region’s population of older adults and disabled individuals.

The Atlanta Region’s Plan is regularly updated, with major updates like the one currently underway taking place every four years. The plan update is set to be approved by the ARC Board in February.

The one in Rockdale takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 15, from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Conyers Rockdale Arts Council, located at 910 Center St. NE, Conyers GA 30012.
