The City of Atlanta Department of City Planning is pleased to invite you to participate on the Stakeholder Advisory Committee for the 2021 Atlanta Comprehensive Development Plan.
The Comprehensive Development Plan guides Atlanta’s growth and development. It is used to prioritize infrastructure investment across the city and make changes to neighborhood and corridor plans. The State requires it to be updated every five (5) years, and this year’s update will happen when Atlantans are facing unprecedented development, a global pandemic, economic uncertainty, and a national reckoning on racism and injustice.
As we take on this effort, we draw upon Atlanta City Design: Aspiring to the Beloved Community and its core values of equity, progress, ambition, access, and nature. The 2021 Comprehensive Development Plan is our chance to embrace an Atlanta designed for growth with greater density while conserving the unique character and scale of our neighborhoods. The Atlanta City Design challenges us to design an inclusive city and become the beloved community.
We are convening a group that is broadly diverse. Your organizations give voice to others. Many of you guided past city-wide planning efforts, such as Atlanta City Design, Atlanta Transportation Plan, Atlanta City Design – Nature, Atlanta City Design – Housing (2020), Atlanta Future Places.
Your continued leadership will ensure the values of Atlanta City Design are put into action in the Comprehensive Development Plan. This group will give insights and feedback to inform decisions throughout the planning process. Equally important, the group’s deep connections with Atlantans will help break down barriers to truly give voice to those who don’t have it yet, particularly those who are suffering from racism, poverty, hunger, homelessness and other injustices.
Atlantans must be heard, especially in these times, and be allowed to influence comprehensive development planning if our city is to be for everyone.
We will hold a virtual introductory meeting to orient the Stakeholder Advisory Committee members.* This meeting will be on Wednesday, October 28th from 12:00 to 1:00pm. The meeting will be recorded and shared to the group if you cannot attend live.
Please indicate your interest, or designee, to participate by registering below.
When: Oct 28, 2020 12:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
