GPA Board of Directors Approves 2021-22 Legislative Priorities

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.
