Be a Part of Planning the Atlanta BeltLine
There are many different ways for people to get involved in the Atlanta BeltLine. This is a project by the community for the community, and residents have an active role in every phase of the process. Study Groups and Advisory Boards are opportunities to engage in high-level discussion with neighbors, planners, developers, and elected officials tasked with making the Atlanta BeltLine happen.
We encourage the community to participate with the Atlanta BeltLine in many ways. We welcome your ideas, participation, and input. Our Citizen Participation framework outlines the specifics of our Advisory Board opportunities. Learn more

Study Groups are the primary way to participate in planning the Atlanta BeltLine. Created by the Atlanta City Council, Study Groups enable direct input into the planning, design, and implementation of the Atlanta BeltLine. There are five Study Groups around the Atlanta BeltLine (N, NE, SE, SW, W), and they focus on topics ranging from park design to transit planning.
