Connect Central Georgia Study

The Office of Planning has initiated the Connect Central Georgia Study to assess safety, mobility, and connectivity across one of the most important transportation links in the state. The 31-County study area, which spans the middle of Georgia from the Alabama border to the South Carolina border, includes four key cities – Columbus, Macon, Warner Robins, and Augusta. The area is home to three military bases (Fort Benning in Columbus, Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, and Fort Gordon in Augusta) as well as significant natural and agricultural resources that drive economic development in the state.

Stakeholder Meetings

As part of the study process a Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG) was organized to provide guidance and feedback to the study team. The SAG was composed of local elected officials and staff from Regional Commissions (RC), Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO), counties and cities, and military installations within the study area, as well as some of the area’s key industry representatives. Five stakeholder meetings were planned over the course of the study at key milestones in the process.
