Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle has tapped a Cumming attorney to serve on the Council of Regional Commissions.

Kevin Tallant’s two-year council term began Wednesday. Council members serve as primary planning entities for land use, environmental, transportation and historic preservation in their designated region.

“Kevin is an experienced and dedicated community leader who I am honored to have serving my office in this capacity,” Cagle said.

“He brings a wealth of knowledge from years of legal practice and local development experience that make him an excellent choice to lead future planning projects for northeast Georgia.”

The council was created in 2008 as the official regional planning and development organization for local governments and residents in designated regions.

Members help shape policy for short- and long-term comprehensive planning and serve as liaisons between their communities and the state government.

Tallant is one of the founding members of the law firm Miles & Tallant. He specializes in local government and land use law, real estate property disputes, contract and business litigation and estate planning.

A Forsyth Central High School graduate, he has been involved in local civic organizations, serving as a member of the Rotary Club of Johns Creek and president of the board of directors for Forsyth County Community Connection. He also holds several leadership positions in his church.

Tallant earned his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Georgia, graduating at the top of his class for both. He lives in Cumming with his wife, Heather, and their two children.
