 The DeKalb County Comprehensive Plan is essential in promoting, developing, sustaining, and assisting coordinated and comprehensive planning by DeKalb County government. Interagency cooperation drives the planning process and includes the Governor’s Development Council, the Department of Community Affairs (DCA), the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) as well as DeKalb County, it’s local governments and constituents. State law requires that jurisdictions maintain and periodically update a 20-year comprehensive plan. Through the planning process the community develops a vision and assesses its needs in a range of planning areas including population, economic development, housing, natural and cultural resources, solid waste management, community facilities, land use and transportation and establishes strategic solutions to meet those needs.
