The Official Planning Agency for the 11-County Atlanta Region
About the Atlanta Regional Commission

The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) and its predecessor agencies have been working since 1947 to plan for a better, brighter Atlanta region. Over the years, ARC’s work portfolio has evolved and now includes regional transportation planning, aging services, community development, water resources management, workforce development, and homeland security.
ARC is charged with considering issues from a regional perspective and working with its community partners to plan the investments and programs needed to improve quality of life for all residents.
