Regional Assessment

The Regional Assessment is the first part of the regional plan. The purpose of the Regional Assessment is to present a factual and conceptual foundation upon which the rest of the regional plan is built. It is an objective and professional assessment of data and information about the region and prepared without extensive direct stakeholder involvement. The Regional Assessment is divided into four sections:


  1. A list of potential issues and opportunities the region may wish to take action to address
  2. Analysis of projected regional development patterns and areas requiring special attention
  3. Evaluation of current policies, activities, and development patterns in the region for consistency with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, Quality Community Objectives
  4. Analysis of data and information to check the validity of the above evaluations and the potential issues and opportunities. 


The Regional Assessment will be used by stakeholders during development of the Regional Agenda portion of the plan.
