Planning Services

Comprehensive Planning

The Northwest Georgia Regional Commission assists member local governments with implementing the Georgia Planning Act of 1989. Local comprehensive plans address community needs and objectives for economic development, community facilities, natural and historic resources, housing, and land use. Plans must be updated every ten years.

The RC encourages counties and municipalities to work together to identify common problems and opportunities and to seek countywide solutions through joint plans. Local plans were used to develop a joint regional plan that identifies opportunities for counties and municipalities to work together on a multi-county basis. The Northwest Georgia Regional Commission have prepared a regional plan for the 15-county State Service Delivery Region 1. The RC also assists local governments with preparing solid waste management plans as required by the Georgia Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Act. These services are implemented in partnership with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. Further information on planning in Georgia can be found on-line at Georgia Planning

It is available for individuals ages 19 and older and for workers of any age whose plants have had major layoffs or have closed. People who receive ITAs must have met the criteria for training under Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funded services.
