  • ARC Names Jane Hayse Director of Center for Livable Communities

    (ATLANTA, March 7, 2013) The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) has selected Jane Hayse to direct its new Center for Livable Communities. She will lead and coordinate efforts among four divisions of metro Atlanta's regional planning agency: Community Development, Natural Resources, Research & Analytics and Transportation Accessibility & Mobility.

    Ms. Hayse joined the regional planning agency in 1989 and has led ARC's transportation planning division since 1998, coordinating the development of the Atlanta region's $61 billion long-range transportation plan. Prior to that, she worked in Cobb County's Planning and Zoning Department and for the Metropolitan Council of the Twin Cities in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Ms. Hayse was instrumental in the establishment of the Georgia Association of MPOs and its first President.

    "We are fortunate to have Jane's diverse experience and capabilities to enhance our region as our first director of the Center for Livable Communities," said Doug Hooker, ARC executive director. "I know she will fully apply her vision, dedication and intellect to take our region to the next level as a top quality place to live."

    Ms. Hayse holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Political Science from the University of North Carolina and a Master of Science in Urban and Regional Planning from Florida State University. She has served in many local and national leadership positions in her field and has received numerous awards, including the 2008 National Award for Outstanding Professional Achievement in Metropolitan Transportation Planning by the Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations. She is a graduate of the Institute for Georgia Environmental Leadership and the Regional Leadership Institute.


  • Congratulations to the Gainesville-Hall MPO!

    The GHMPO 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) was recognized as one of the best planning documents throughout the United States. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration and the Florida Metropolitan Planning Organization Advisory Council, studied long range transportation plans from 359 MPOs in the country (excluding Florida's 26 MPOs) and determined that the GHMPO MTP exemplifies long range planning "best practices". The recently published report by FDOT recognized the MTP as good example of a descriptive plan that informs the public and speaks at an appropriate level that can easily be understood. Below is a graphic showing the MPOs selected and the final report can be accessed here: www.dot.state.fl.us/planning/policy/metrosupport/LRTPReport.pdf.
