Abstract

In recent years, tension has begun between local and regional governments because of the trend toward doing planning and development on a regional level rather than a local level. These tensions are illustrated particularly clearly in Georgia with the establishment of the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority, one of the strongest moves toward regional planning. This article analyzes the historical tensions between local and regional planning in Georgia as well as the changing landscape brought on by the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority, and evaluates the current boundaries between regional and “home rule.”

Keywords: local government, regional government, real estate planning, finance foreclosure, Georgia Regional Transportation Authority, home rule, property planning
