City of Atlanta Planning and Zoning Rewrite

Tim Keane, City of Atlanta Planning Commissioner, was the featured speaker in a seminar titled, “City Planning.” that I attended recently.  I have heard Commissioner Keane speak before and his insights are fantastic as they relate to the City of Atlanta, architecture and city planning. 

Commissioner Keane discussed the process of City Planning, advancements of the planning department as well as the City of Atlanta’s Zoning update.  City of Atlanta is doing a zoning rewrite and they are implementing a series of “quick fixes” to address issues that can be easily corrected.  The City has held public comment on this process and will present a package to the Mayor and Council later in the year.  To learn more about the Zoning Update check out: www.zoningatl.com.

I was also intrigued by the very long term and comprehensive planning being done by his office.  To see the highlights check out this website as well: ATLCityDesign.com.
