Regional Excellence Awards

ARC’s Regional Excellence Awards recognize planning and development projects in metro Atlanta that that enhance the surrounding community and support the goals and policies of the Atlanta Region’s Plan, metro Atlanta’s long-range, comprehensive blueprint.

Local governments, developers, and other organizations are awarded Regional Excellence Awards for visionary planning and innovative design projects that make the 11-county Atlanta region a better place to live, work, and play — improving quality of life, transit accessibility, housing affordability, and economic development, all while advancing social equity and community resiliency.
