Organizer

Atlanta Planning Advisory Board

APAB is composed of twenty-five (25) delegates and  25 alternate delegates from each of the City's 25 Neighborhood Planning Units (NPU). The NPU Chairperson or official delegate is, by statute, the voting representative of their NPU. APAB elects officers yearly, and its officers, together with its committee chairs, constitute the Executive Committee of the Atlanta Planning Advisory Board.

APAB meets at 10:00am on the third Saturday of every month at City Hall. The public is invited to attend any regular APAB meeting. A brief period for public comment is a feature of the monthly APAB session. APAB meetings are televised live on City Channel 26, and are taped for archival purposes.

The primary mission of the Atlanta Planning Advisory Boardis to facilitate citizen participation in affairs of city government by drawing on its representation from the Neighborhood Planning Unit system and elsewhere and to advise the City Administration, City Council and others on citywide issues, goals and objectives relative to Atlanta's Comprehensive Development Plan and related concerns. It also advises on ongoing issues related to land use, zoning, transportation, environmental quality, license review, parks and open spaces.
