ARC is forming a New Voices Global Atlanta Advisory Panel to ensure that the region’s dynamic, vibrant international community is well-represented at the regional planning table. We are accepting applications now through February 24 for this new initiative.
In 2016, WorkSource Atlanta Regional served more than 38,000 people in Cherokee, Clayton, Douglas, Fayette, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties. These individuals received a range of services designed to jump-start their careers, from resume preparation and career counseling to industry-specific training and computer literacy courses.
The cities of Norcross, Douglasville and Milton were recognized by ARC in January for leading the way to a greener region. These communities were certified through ARC’s Green Communities program for their commitment to environmental stewardship and their leadership in sustainability practices.

Transit-oriented developments, or TODs, are pedestrian friendly, mixed-use communities built around rail stations. How can we ensure that these popular projects do not price out the lower-income residents who need access to transit and jobs the most? The TransFormation Alliance has a website with some tools and information that can help.
Can public art improve and enliven the experience of transit riders in Atlanta? That's the goal of MARTA's En Route project. Atlanta artist Fahamu Pecou's striking mural at the King Memorial MARTA station is the first completed mural in the project. It was created with the help of funds from the Atlanta Regional Public Art Program.
