Community Engagement Progress

We Couldn't Do It Without You

The involvement of the surrounding community is essential to the success of the Atlanta BeltLine. We have held over 225 public meetings engaging over 5,000 participants in the planning process in an effort to keep everyone informed on progress along the Atlanta BeltLine. We have pledged to stay transparent and keep Atlanta informed as we take this journey together. A project that reflects the goals and aspirations of our neighborhoods is one we call a success!

The Community Engagement Framework

The Atlanta BeltLine’s initial Five Year Work Plan included a legislatively mandated Community Engagement Framework, consisting of five components: a Tax Allocation District Advisory Committee and Affordable Housing Advisory Board; a community representative on the ABI Board of Directors; a community engagement advocate on staff; formal community reporting; and the creation of a structure or framework in which to engage the community in the Atlanta BeltLine planning area. All of these components have been implemented.
