The Atlanta-region Transit Link Authority (ATL) is strongly committed to seeking and encouraging public participation in the planning process. The overall goal of the ATL is to establish a framework for achieving mutual understanding of project issues among all concerned stakeholders involved and impacted by the relevant project or program change and to effectively engage minority, low-income, and limited English proficient populations in the public decision-making process. ATL engages in public outreach to ensure that its stakeholders receive information regarding the status of relevant project or program changes and participate in the decision making and planning process.
ATL endeavors to provide meaningful opportunities for the public to assist staff in identifying social, economic, and environmental impacts of proposed transportation decisions. This includes input from low-income, minority and LEP populations, through the public participation methods.
Additionally, ATL endeavors to ensure that the comments it receives are useful, relevant and constructive, contributing to better plans, projects, strategies and decisions. ATL works to ensure that opportunities to participate are accessible physically, geographically, temporally, linguistically and culturally.
