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.
