Public Notice: Criteria and Procedures for Regional Commission Boundary Changes

The Georgia Planning Act authorizes the Board of Community Affairs ("Board") to determine and establish from time to time, the territorial boundaries for Regional Commissions (“RCs”) (O.C.G.A. § 50-8-4(f)(2)). Any boundary change, however, must be ratified by joint resolution or legislative act of the General Assembly before becoming effective.

The proposed revisions to the “Criteria and Procedures for Regional Commission Boundary Changes” (last updated October 2010) are accessible below.
