Comprehensive Development Plan Update
The City of Atlanta 2016 Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) is underway! The Georgia Planning act of 1989 calls for local governments to develop and adopt a comprehensive plan. The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) establishes the standards and procedures for coordinated and comprehensive planning as well as the date by which a comprehensive plan must be adopted. The City of Atlanta’s Comprehensive Plan has to be adopted by October 31, 2016. In addition, the Charter of the City of Atlanta mandates the preparation of a Comprehensive Development Plan.
Atlanta Zoning Rewrite
The Atlanta Zoning Ordinance Rewrite Assessment is a project of the Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) Office of Planning. This work is being led by the consultant team of TSW, Canvas Planning Group, and The Zoeckler Firm. This Assessment includes a review and analysis of best practices in major peer cities and innovative zoning and land use practices such as form-based ordinances and hybrid zoning ordinances (i.e. those that incorporate form-based and conventional land use-based provisions). Additionally, the Assessment will focus on how well the current Zoning Ordinance implements City policies and plans, such as the Comprehensive Development Plan and will also identify the strengths and weaknesses of the existing Zoning Ordinance in terms of its content, structure, organization, clarity, ease of use, enforcement,zoning districts and district standards, regulations of general applicability, definitions, graphics, and procedures
