This updated Regional Plan will include a Regional Vision, a list of regional priority needs and opportunities appropriate for action, and recommended implementation strategies for improvement and action. All concerned with the future improvement of the Heart of Georgia Altamaha Region and its growth and development are invited to submit their thoughts and ideas on the Region’s future, its vision, needs and opportunities, or needed actions to the HOGARC.
