The GPA Board of Directors unanimously approved Legislative Policy Priorities for the 2021-22 Georgia General Assembly at its February 9 meeting. The document is a statement of our Chapter priorities and professional position on policy and legislative issues. It will guide advocacy positions taken by the Chapter and is also intended to serve as a framework for local advocacy efforts by GPA members. The document makes a nod to the American Planning Association (APA) 2021 Policy Priorities, which are described on the APA website.
GPA’s legislative priorities include the following:
- Local Governance in Support of Home Rule
- Available, Affordable and Attainable Quality Housing
- Transportation and Infrastructure
- Healthy Communities
- Fair and Equitable Governance
- Environmental Stewardship
Thank you to the Policy and Advocacy Committee for collaboratively drafting these policies as a part of its duties as detailed in our Chapter Bylaws.
