Project Overview

The DeKalb County 2050 Unified Plan will combine two of the County’s long-range plans into one: a Comprehensive Transportation Plan that identifies priority transportation projects and policy recommendations and a Comprehensive Land Use Plan that establishes the framework for future growth and development. Transportation and land use investments have a direct impact on one another, so the combined plan will create a more consistent, unified strategy. The combined plan will address arts and culture, housing, health and wellness, public safety, sustainability, retail, and annexation.

The recommendations of this planning process will help DeKalb leadership determine which transportation projects to pursue for both local funding opportunities and state and federal dollars. The Plan will also include recommendations within unincorporated DeKalb activity centers for the types of growth and development that may occur based on new market realities and trends.


The DeKalb 2050 Unified Plan team is looking for your input on draft transportation and land use recommendations. We have multiple ways for you to participate! You can attend a virtual public meeting, visit us at a community event near you, or take the online survey from the comfort of your home or office. Or you can do all three!

Your input matters to this process. Please participate and share the opportunities with others interested in the future of DeKalb County.

Take the Survey - Closing June 13th

Give us feedback on our draft recommendations through our online survey.

Within our main survey, you can choose to answer questions about transportation, land use, or both.

We also have two interactive maps that allow you to provide feedback on transportation projects in more detail. The first map is for projects in unincorporated DeKalb County, and the second is for projects in the cities. City projects shown here include larger investments from multiple different planning efforts.

Attend a Virtual Public Meeting

We hosted three virtual public meetings in the month of May. If you were not able to join, you can view the recorded meetings and the presentation on the Resources tab.

The Unified Plan team was excited to partner with Super District Commissioners Lorraine Cochran-Johnson (Super District 7) and Ted Terry (Super District 6) for a Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday June 1st at 6 PM. If you were unable to attend the meeting, you can find the video here as well as Resource tab.
