Atlanta Regional Plan 2040

Location Atlanta Georgia
Organization Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development, Georgia Institute of Technology College of Architecture

The first-ever HIA on a major metropolitan transportation and comprehensive growth plan will be led by the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development (CQGRD) at the Georgia Institute of Technology's College of Architecture. Plan 2040—which is being conducted by the Atlanta Regional Commission, the local intergovernmental-coordination agency—integrates multiple aspects of regional planning, including transportation, land use, water and air quality, housing and greenspace through the year 2040. CQGRD will examine the plan's potential impact on a range of health issues, such as injury and asthma rates, and the risks of obesity and diabetes.
