CRC provides guidance on ARC’s Regional Development Plan, Livable Centers Initiative (LCI), Developments of Regional Impact (DRI) review process, Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District work, and other issues. CRC members consist of elected officials, non-profit leaders and private sector professionals appointed by the ARC Chairman. Each committee member serves two years and until his or her successor has been appointed.
