For metro residents dreaming of getting out and about the AeroATL Greenway trail system is hosting interactive online meetings to discuss how the trail is being planned.
In early 2017, the Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance and Aerotropolis Atlanta Community Improvement Districts completed a comprehensive master plan for multi-use trails in the Aerotropolis Atlanta area that aims to connect the communities around Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The AeroATL Greenway Plan builds upon the idea proposed in the 2015 Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance Blueprint and a significant amount of public input, considering existing trails, economic, environmental and social constraints, key connection points, safety issues, and best practices.
Now, in 2020, seven jurisdictions have taken the next step towards implementation of that master plan, winning a grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission to develop site plans and engineering concepts for a model mile in their community. This is the beginning of trail connectivity in the airport area.
Residents are asked to go to each jurisdiction’s Social PinPoint site to learn about each unique model mile. On each site, you can:
Provide critical input on our interactive mapping tool
Take a survey on key issues and opportunities
And, find information on future public engagement opportunities
There will also be seven individual virtual public meetings, one for each model mile community. Meetings can be accessed on a laptop or desktop computer or by phone at the specific date and time for each community’s meeting. Attendees will need to install the Cisco Webex Meetings app to join by video otherwise they may join by phone.
