The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) today announced that it has awarded $1.6 million in Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) study grants to help 10 metro Atlanta communities develop plans and polices to create more vibrant, walkable, and connected places.

Once the planning studies are complete, these communities will become eligible to receive federal transportation funding for projects, such as sidewalks, multi-use trails, and intersection improvements, to bring their visions to life.

“The LCI program is an innovative way to help transform communities and improve quality of life across the Atlanta region,” said ARC Executive Director Doug Hooker. “So many of us today want to live and work in dynamic, lively places where you can walk or bike to get your errands done, grab a meal, or visit with friends. These investments will help foster these kinds of spaces throughout metro Atlanta.”

The Aerotropolis Atlanta Community Improvement Districts was humbled to to receive $350,000 of this grant amount. The Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs in cooperation with the cities of East Point, Forest Park, Hapeville, South Fulton, and Union City, and Clayton County will continue the work of the Aerotropolis Greenway Plan by developing concepts within the jurisdictions to implement their “Model Miles”.  Click here to read the full Press Release.
