The city of Chamblee is one of 11 communities to win a Livable Centers Initiative study grant from The Atlanta Regional Commission.
The $80,000 award helps design phase 3 of the Chamblee Rail Trail, which extends the trail to Ingersoll Rand Drive. It also will provide an analysis of the trail’s interaction with the planned Peachtree Road Streetscape project, and the ongoing Town Center Master Plan process.
The 11 LCI planning grants awarded this year include two major updates to plans already underway, and nine supplemental grants to help continue and/or expand existing studies.
ARC awarded $742,400 in total, and the grants will help recipients develop plans and policies that create more vibrant, walkable and connected places. Once the studies are complete, these communities will become eligible to receive funding for transportation projects such as sidewalks and intersection improvements, to help implement their visions.
