ARC’s Annual Budget and Work Program

Since 1947, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) and its predecessor agencies have developed a framework of plans and programs that have fostered the Atlanta region’s positive development and ensured a high quality of life. From creating the first parallel runway plan in the U.S., which led to the most traveled airport in the world, to protecting the region’s major water source, the Chattahoochee River, regional initiatives have shaped our present and will continue to mold our future.

ARC’s Strategic Plan serves as a framework to guide both current and future board members and staff in focusing resources and efforts most efficiently on the region’s most critical needs. The Strategic Plan defines ARC’s purpose, vision, mission, values, core policies, objectives and strategies.

The Budget and Work Program align with and detail delivery of ARC’s Strategic Framework. Further guidance and aspirational direction is drawn from the update to The Atlanta Region’s Plan, which was adopted in 2020.
