ARC Board Committees

All members of the ARC Board serve on at least one committee and additional committee members can be appointed from outside ARC.

The committees meet monthly to consider specific subjects referred to them by staff, the Commission or initiated by the committee itself.

ARC may also, from time-to-time, appoint special purpose task forces or organize collaborative efforts to examine issues affecting the Atlanta region or to help implement projects or programs to effect positive community change.

Community Engagement

ARC welcomes input from interested citizens from the Atlanta regional community.  In order to properly hear from interested persons and respond to their comments, ARC requests that citizens follow the ARC Policy for Citizen Input.
