Over the last few decades, logistics, hospitality, information technology and life sciences have blossomed in the Atlanta region. Incentivizing start-up opportunities and local business development and expanding successful ventures will ensure continued prosperity. The Atlanta Region’s Plan seeks to further improve the region’s economic viability by preserving access to key intermodal freight facilities and by advancing policies that make the region more attractive to business.
The Region’s Plan policies support equitable access to digital infrastructure, such as high speed internet, to ensure all parts of the region can attract new employers and allow for innovation. The Atlanta Region’s Plan also encourages developing and enhancing existing and emerging employment centers, which serve as the backbone of the region’s economy, through improvements in transportation and land use.
