Learn More About Livable Communities
The livability of a community is measured by the many factors that contribute to a community’s quality of life. These factors include the built and natural environments, economic prosperity, social stability and equity, educational opportunity, and cultural, entertainment, and recreation possibilities.
Communities nationwide have made the characteristics of livable communities a priority within their municipal operations. Partners for Livable Communities, formed in 2005, is one such example. The Coalition unites over 50 organizations working to change the way metro Atlanta grows by focusing on land use, transportation, housing, and conservation of open green space and natural resources. Member organizations include regional leaders in the areas of aging, building and development, business, urban and landscape design, government, housing, planning, sustainable development, the environment, and transit and transportation alternatives.
