Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs awarded ARC grant

The Aerotropolis Atlanta Community Improvement Districts recently received $350,000 of $1.6 million in Livable Centers Initiative study grants awarded by The Atlanta Regional Commission. The grants are to help 10 metro Atlanta communities develop plans and policies to create more vibrant, walkable and connected places.

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.”

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, according to a press release.
