PlanFirst is Georgia DCA’s program to recognize and reward communities that clearly demonstrate an established pattern of successfully implementing their Local Comprehensive Plan. Any size community is encouraged to apply, provided it has a history of public involvement with the development of the plan, active engagement in plan implementation, and proven progress with achieving the community’s stated vision or goals. PlanFirst designation is awarded to local governments on an individual basis. DCA encourages joint local planning; however, each government is responsible for achieving the activities in its community-specific work program. Multiple governments within a county that plan jointly must apply for PlanFirst separately.
