The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is asking for feedback on a 25-year blueprint of the region.

Comments are being accepted on the Atlanta Region’s Plan through Jan. 15 of 2016.

The plan includes transportation, community development, water resources, aging & health services, and workforce development. The full plan is 600+ pages online.

A press release from ARC said:

The plan is built on three pillars that define success for metro Atlanta: providing world-class infrastructure; fostering healthy, livable communities; and building a competitive economy. The Atlanta Region’s Plan includes an $86.1 billion investment in the region’s transportation infrastructure, providing new choices for residents and keeping our economy competitive. Transportation expenditures through 2040 include:

  • Construction of managed toll lanes (114 miles): $6.9 billion
  • Major roadway and intersection improvements: $9.8 billion
  • Potential transit expansion projects: $12 billion
  • Transit operations and maintenance: $30.7 billion
  • Road maintenance, operations and safety: $24.3 billion
  • Bicycle/Pedestrian facilities: $1.9 billion
  • Management of Demand on the network (promoting carpooling, telecommuting and other commute alternatives): $.5 billion

ARC said the public can submit formal comments by mail, email, or phone, or they can take a survey. Details for these can be found on ARC’s website. There will also be a public hearing and an open house on Jan. 14.
