The Atlanta Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects is pleased to host a special general body meeting focused on the role of design and architects in the future growth of City of Atlanta and ways to support the City’s under-served communities.

 

Under the leadership of Mayor Kasim Reed, the City of Atlanta has begun a robust dialogue to design the vision for a future Atlanta of approximately 1.3 million people in the next 35 years. Through increased dialogue and new initiatives like the Atlanta City Design Project and the new Atlanta City Studio, the City of Atlanta is working to collaboratively design an inclusive vision. Architects and design professionals will play a critical role in helping to accomplish the City’s goals. This event will offer a candid panel discussion on how architects and design professionals can play a key role in the future growth of Atlanta and how we can help ensure that our historically under-served communities are not left behind.

 

The leaders will discuss how proven design, planning and economic strategies can address issues impacting the City and its under-served communities within the context of a potential city of 1.3 million residents. Key issues can include gentrification, economic and transportation equity, access to quality education, in-fill development and affordable housing.

    What is your position–as it relates to the current COA Zoning Update– on “inclusionary zoning”, and would you support a “mandate” in the near future?

    Does the COA mandate minority participation in all federal funded development projects?
