Developments of Regional Impact

Per state law (OCGA §50-32-14), GRTA is required to review all Developments of Regional Impact (DRIs) within its 13-county metro Atlanta jurisdiction. GRTA’s purpose is to evaluate the proposed development’s effect on the surrounding transportation infrastructure and to identify options to mitigate current and future impacts to mobility using best-practice standards for transportation and land use.

A DRI is a large, master-planned development that exceeds a threshold size and land use type determined by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. The Regional Commission determines if the project warrants a DRI review. GRTA reviews all DRIs as determined by the Regional Commission. GRTA and the Regional Commission coordinate to maximize the time and information provided and work together to involve partner agencies, adjacent local governments and the applicant’s consultant team.
