The Civic League for Regional Atlanta sponsored a series of Neighborhood Forums across the 10-county metro region in support of ARC's Fifty Forward visioning and planning initiative. The Neighborhood Forums offered an opportunity for grassroots discussions about what citizens want our region to look like and work like 50 years from now.
Watch a brief video about the visions some metro Atlanta children have for the future:

The results of these citizen meetings, which are captured in the reports below, were shared with ARC and included in the development of the Fifty Forward vision and plans for our Atlanta region’s successful future.
