Regional Plans are a guide for future decision making that addresses critical regional issues and opportunities and provides a framework for advancing the state's planning goals. Regional Plans are also wider in scope than local plans, and deal with broader issues that involve a variety of entities, including state and federal agencies, local governments and private organizations. Each of Georgia’s twelve Regional Commissions develops a regionally-specific plan, which must be approved by DCA and adopted by its Regional Council.
