SUSTAINABLE ATLANTA ROUNDTABLE (SART)
Planning for a Sustainable Atlanta
February 6, 2015 | 7:30-9:00 am | Southface Eco Office
The biggest new development boom we’ve seen since the 1996 Olympics is currently underway in the City of Atlanta. What does this mean for Atlanta’s future? Will we expand our city’s walkable urban spaces or will we compound suburban sprawl and highway congestion?
The City of Atlanta Planning Commissioner, a position currently vacant, is responsible for the city’s comprehensive planning, and therefore has significant influence over the direction of new development in Atlanta. On February 6, three of Atlanta’s prior planning commissioners will convene to discuss Atlanta’s new development and what we need in a commissioner in order to position Atlanta as a forward-thinking sustainable city of the future.
Panelists: Michael Dobbins, Leon Eplan and Tom Weyandt
Date: Friday, February 6, 2015
Time: 7:30 - 9:00 am (doors open at 7:00 for networking)
Location: Southface Eco Office (241 Pine Street NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30308)
