Airport Area Planning

The Atlanta Regional Commission engages local governments and businesses surrounding Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and played an integral role in the development of the Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance.

This nonprofit organization is focused on helping to develop a vibrant “Aerotropolis” around the world’s busiest airport and serving as a catalyst for economic development and investment.

The airport is a primary driver of metro Atlanta’s economy. But until now, no collaborative effort has brought together the area’s many varied stakeholders under a joint vision and strategy to truly leverage the airport’s role as an economic powerhouse.

Aerotropolis Atlanta is a new vision of metro Atlanta’s southside. The goal is to transform the airport vicinity into a world-class Aerotropolis by stimulating investment and strengthening public coordination for the benefit of all Aerotropolis Atlanta stakeholders.
