1. INTRODUCTION
An experiment with Geodesign at multiple concurrent scales has been conducted in the coastal region of Georgia, USA, using
Carl Steinitz' Geodesign framework [1,2] and the geodesignhub web-based software system (geodesignhub.com) Our group
collaborated with the Coastal Regional Commission of Georgia, the body coordinating planning in the six coastal counties and
four contiguous inland ones. The coast is lined with salt marshes and with barrier islands under varying levels of conservation
protection. While the region is predominantly rural, it is enjoying strong economic development led by the Port of Savannah,
manufacturing industries and a proposed Space Port, as well as increased tourism to the coastal beaches and cultural and
historical richness of Savannah. Some counties have vigorous economies projected to grow with high rates of in-migration as well
as natural growth, others face population decline. Planning tools such as development controls or incentives operate at the county
and municipal level in the United States impeding coordinated region-wide planning for regional transportation, wildlife corridors,
flood control or responses to climate change. Economic development, population growth and projected sea-level rise are three of
the regional-scale forces affecting the future of coastal Georgia.
The aim of this study was for ten single-county teams working at the county scale and two regional teams, each looking at issues
of conservation and development through a series of iterations and negotiations, to generate and compare alternative designs
scenarios for the future of the coast of Georgia. The objective was to generate a region-wide negotiated and collaborative design
within which the planning needs of ten counties could be satisfied (Figure 1).
