Forums for Atlanta Regional Commission's Plan 2040
The Civic League for Regional Atlanta gives the residents of the 10-county region* a voice in addressing the changes ahead, alongside elected officials, policy makers and business leaders. We provide opportunities for education, collaborative problem-solving and consensus-building, and we represent the voice of the people in the regional policy arena.
President John F. Kennedy spoke of a generation’s responsibility to make decisions that leave the world a better place for the generations that follow. The Civic League understands that the best way to do this is to ensure that the many opinions and hopes represented throughout our diverse region are heard. Real people must be given a voice, as only then can we make decisions that will unite and strengthen the region for future generations.
*The Atlanta region includes the 4.1 million people living in Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties.

The Stockbridge Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) Study 10-Year Update is a community-based effort to prepare a plan for the future of Stockbridge’s core and nearby areas. It builds upon the work of a previous LCI study from 2001, which must now be reexamined in the light of today’s current economy and changing community needs.
The 2001 LCI identified a strong desire on the part of Stockbridge stakeholders to preserve and protect the city’s neighborhoods. Accordingly, this update will focus on identifying opportunities for growth and redevelopment within the community’s commercial areas, including along SR 138 and the greater town center area. In addition, it will explore opportunities to connect these areas to other parts of the city with sidewalks, trails, and community-scaled roadway improvements.
As the plan is developed between now and March 2012, meaningful public involvement will be key to its success. The City of Stockbridge and the consultant team are committed to an open, honest, and inclusive planning process grounded in a respect for the opinions of all Stockbridge stakeholders. Only by giving everyone an opportunity to help shape the future of the community can a lasting and sustainable vision for Stockbridge’s future be achieved.
