WHAT: Each year the Georgia Tech Student Planning Association hosts a panel discussion, open to the public, surrounding a current planning event to celebrate World Town Planning Day (www.planningtheworld.net). This year, the panel discussion will focus on innovations in zoning for large cities and how these could be applied in Atlanta. The panel will discuss the state of zoning in Atlanta, where Atlanta is heading with its zoning code update, and lessons in land use policy that could be learned from other cities. We will hear perspectives from the City of Atlanta, global urban policy and design experts, and local developers.
