Atlanta planners start developing 50-year plan

Abstract:
With the state gripped in a drought, concerns that Atlanta's economic engine is sputtering and persistent gridlock fears, the Atlanta Regional Commission figured it was a better time than ever to start shaping the city's future.

The commission launched a two-year project Thursday to develop a 50 year growth plan for the 10-county region, and the state's water crisis wasn't far from the minds of the more than 1,000 business and government leaders who attended the launch.

One path is the city to become a "green leader" embracing more alternative energy and becoming a hub, once again, for passenger train service. Another is for the city to become a "Techtopia," focused on attracting businesses in the nanotech, life sciences and energy fields.
