2016 was pivotal for the Aerotropolis Atlanta Community Improvement Districts (AACIDs). We experienced immense, positive changes confirming that we remain on a successful track for greater economic development and prosperity.
To start last year, the Airport West CID in Fulton County and Airport South CID in Clayton County formed a new partnership to enhance the impact of each entity. The new Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs effort has taken off, and we are working with the Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance to support economic development initiatives.
The last 12 months saw the AACIDs accomplish key goals in public safety, beautification and infrastructure. The AACIDs also completed a master plan, which established two key goals for the districts – Change the brand and perception of the area to establish an authentic Aerotropolis brand, and support economic development by making the Aerotropolis attractive for business and industry.
We’re confident that these goals will help the AACIDs to move the needle in 2017.
