The Northeast Georgia Regional Commission is proud to announce the release of our Northeast Georgia Regional Housing Guidelines. The report includes a detailed analysis of housing issues in the region and provides recommendations to local governments on how to implement and influence local housing development. Like much of the U.S., the Northeast Region of Georgia is facing a housing shortage, and the challenge of creating and maintaining a sufficient housing stock is having an adverse impact on many of our residents. Our planning staff has identified existing and innovative planning tools that can be utilized by our region’s local governments to help fill the housing gaps in their communities. While this pressing issue is complicated, the information provided in this report can help governments in Northeast Georgia approach the topic of housing in a more informed and strategic way at the local level. This document can be used in conjunction with the 2020 NEGRC Housing & Transportation Analysis.
NEGRC staff who contributed to the project include Mark Beatty, NEGRC Planning & Government Services Director, and Phillip Jones, Community Planner. If you have any questions about the report or would like to discuss housing strategies for your local community, please contact Mark Beatty, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Phillip Jones, email@example.com, by email or by phone at (706) 369-5650.
