The City and Regional Planning studio, Industrial Land and Sustainable Industry in the City of Atlanta, was completed by Kale Driemeier (MCRP ’10), Nate Hoelzel (PhD class of ’12), Jodi Mansbach (MCRP ’10), Edward Morrow (MCRP class of ’11), Charles Moseley (MCRP ’10), Rahul Jain (MCRP and MSPP class of ’11), Shelley Stevens (MCRP ’10), and Ermis Zayas (MCRP ’10) in Fall 2009 under the direction of Professor Nancey Green Leigh, FAICP.  This studio responds to the growing loss of industrial land in the City, provides the core of what will be Atlanta’s first industrial land use plan and policy that promotes sustainability and equity, and culminates in a range of industrial retention and attraction and workforce development policies designed using examples from cities recognized as leaders in industrial policy-making. The project was funded by the Atlanta Development Authority.
