How often do you think about the future of your community? Are there things right now that you want to see get better? What about those attributes about your community that you love?

A new regional survey being conducted by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) poses these questions and more to find out exactly what you think is important to ensure that Metro Atlanta remains globally competitive, raises the best workforce possible and continues to be a great place to live.

This is the first of three surveys that ARC will conduct over the course of updating the Regional Plan, set to be adopted in the Spring of 2016. This first Regional Plan survey is available HERE and is open from the beginning of July through the end of September 2014.

Please contact Melissa Roberts, Atlanta Regional Commission with any questions at or 404-463-3272.
