You’ll learn about conventional and traditional ideas of development and how places that provide access and opportunity can create true community. Athens, GA, the seat of the University of Georgia, or to nearby Gwinnett County, a national leader in creating New Urban communities.
The GMA will accept credits through the ”Critical Issues” provision of elective courses offered by the Harold F. Holtz Municipal Training Institute.
