Atlanta Planning Commissioner exits role after 7 years

by The 100 Companies

Tim Keane has vacated his role as the City of Atlanta Director of Planning and Community Development.

The resignation comes a few months after Keane’s controversial zoning proposal, which included increased density near MARTA stations and eliminated parking requirements for most residential areas. It also reduced regulations for accessory dwelling units and was voted down by Atlanta’s City Council.

Hired in 2015 by former Mayor Kasim Reed, Keane worked to create a strong, long-term vision for Atlanta’s future and calls for increased affordable housing in the city. He is also credited with operational improvements to Atlanta’s permitting and inspections process.
