Looking at Atlanta, Georgia, one might conclude that the city's notorious sprawl, degraded air quality, and tenuous water supply is a result of a lack of planning - particularly an absence of coordination at the regional level. In Atlanta Unbound, Carlton Wade Basmajian shows that Atlanta's low-density urban form and its associated problems have been both highly coordinated and regionally planned. Basmajian's shrewd analysis shows how regional policies spanned political boundaries and framed local debates over several decades. He examines the role of the Atlanta Regional Commission's planning deliberations that appear to have contributed to the urban sprawl that they were designed to control. Basmajian explores four cases - regional land development plans, water supply strategies, growth management policies, and transportation infrastructure programs - to provide a detailed account of the interactions between citizens, planners, regional commissions, state government, and federal agencies. In the process, Atlanta Unbound answers the question: Toward what end and for whom is Atlanta's regional planning process working?
