From DeKalb 2050 Unified Plan -

"The DeKalb County 2050 Unified Plan will combine two of the County’s long-range plans into one: a Comprehensive Transportation Plan that identifies priority transportation projects and policy recommendations and a Comprehensive Land Use Plan that establishes the framework for future growth and development. Transportation and land use investments have a direct impact on one another, so the combined plan will create a more consistent, unified strategy. The combined plan will address arts and culture, housing, health and wellness, public safety, sustainability, retail, and annexation.

The recommendations of this planning process will help DeKalb leadership determine which transportation projects to pursue for both local funding opportunities and state and federal dollars. The Plan will also include recommendations within unincorporated DeKalb activity centers for the types of growth and development that may occur based on new market realities and trends.

We are preparing for our final round of community engagement! In the month of May, we will be hosting virtual public meetings, participating in community events around the County, and gathering feedback through an online survey.

Our three virtual public meetings have been scheduled – registration links are on this page for you to sign up. In the meantime, please hold your calendar for a day and time that work for you (content will be the same for all three meetings) :

We want to hear from you! Please register to be added to our communication list so you can be informed of the latest updates regarding opportunities to provide feedback. Your input matters to this process and to the future of DeKalb County.
