Community Choices Toolkit

Creating and sustaining quality communities is about providing balance and promoting choices. It is preservation, economic development, revitalization, transportation, neighborhoods and high quality services. It is the protection of community character and a place that residents call home. It is a safe environment in which citizens have a sense of unmatched spirit and pride.

 

The goal of the Community Choices Toolkit is to educate local officials about the choices available to them to create and sustain quality communities. The diverse set of concepts included in the toolkit take into account and complement the priorities of the unique and individual communities that are part of the Atlanta region.
