The city of Atlanta, like any big city, faces any number of questions as officials try to plan for its future. Questions about transportation, housing, preservation and sustainability, among others, top the list.

Answering some of those questions falls into the domain of a city planning commissioner, and Atlanta has a new one. Formerly with the city of Charleston, South Carolina, where he had a similar job, Tim Keane was confirmed by the Atlanta City Council as the city’s new planning commissioner in July.

Keane answered some looming questions for Atlanta, like the future of Turner Field when the Braves leave next year, on “Closer Look.” He also talked about how Atlanta and its neighborhoods might develop in the future and what factors might impact that development.
