Public Forum on Plan 2040 Nov 9 (North Fulton, North DeKalb, Gwinnett)

Fast‐growing region needs forward‐thinking plan: Civic League, ARC seek citizen input on Nov. 9

Residents of North Fulton, North DeKalb and Gwinnett counties are invited to join The Civic League for Regional Atlanta and the Atlanta Regional Commission on Tuesday, Nov. 9 from 6:45 to 9:00 p.m. for a public forum on Plan 2040, the 10‐county region’s plan for guiding economic and population growth sustainably over the next 30 years. The Plan 2040 Forum will be held at Christ the King Lutheran Church (5575 Peachtree Parkway, Norcross GA 30092), and though this is a free event, registration is requested by Nov. 5.

With a projected population increase of around 3 million people by 2040, regional citizens and policymakers have much to consider ‐‐ How will we all get around? How much farther out (or up) should our communities grow? How do we balance what we want against what we really need? Planners from ARC will be on hand at this event to explain Plan 2040 and answer questions, and The Civic League will facilitate a group discussion designed to solicit thoughtful feedback from all participants.

Since June, The Civic League and ARC have been hosting Plan 2040 Forums in communities around the region to engage a broad cross‐section of citizens in planning for the region’s continued strong growth. The Nov. 9 forum is located for the convenience of individuals who live or work in northeast metro communities, including Chamblee, Doraville, Dunwoody, Norcross, Lilburn, Berkley Lake, Lawrenceville, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, Johns Creek and Suwanee.
