The City of Atlanta is investing heavily into weather systems to turn Atlanta into a Smart City, but in order to make our the efforts meet the community's needs, we want your input. In this workshop we will equip participants with tools and resources to design their vision for what an ideal response to flooding, snow, storms, and other weather effects looks like.
