Facilitating Public Engagement

The primary function of Atlanta BeltLine Tax Allocation District Advisory Committee (TADAC) is to ensure ongoing and meaningful citizen input into the planning, design and implementation of the Atlanta BeltLine. These documents outline the functions of TADAC, or provide supporting information regarding policies and actions related to TADAC operations.

Redevelopment Plan

The Redevelopment Plan serves as a framework for moving forward, outlines major public infrastructure projects that comprise the BeltLine project, and defines the type and scope of development that is consistent with good planning practices. The Plan also anticipates the need for continued public dialogue and decision-making about critical issues such as bond issuances, land use, and the design and development of parks, trails, and transit.

DocumentDescription
Redevelopment PlanThe Atlanta BeltLine is one of those rare projects that has the extraordinary potential to transform the City of Atlanta. By creating and enhancing greenspace, trails, transit, and new development along 22 miles of historic rail segments, this revived industrial landscape can become the solution to our scattered pattern of growth, and the framework for a truly sustainable Atlanta.
Redevelopment Area and Tax Allocation District Creation LegislationAdopted in 2005, the Atlanta BeltLine Redevelopment Plan and creation of the BeltLine Tax Allocation District (BeltLine TAD) was deemed necessary to "assure that the City of Atlanta maintains its historical position as the commercial center of the region and provides an alternative to the continued sprawling patterns of development in the region." The BeltLine TAD will continue through 2030, and will help improve economic and social conditions in the Atlanta BeltLine corridor, benefit underutilized and economically and socially depressed urban areas, and promote development and transit opportunities in the corridor.


Community Engagement Framework

The Atlanta BeltLine’s initial Five Year Work Plan included a Citizen Participation Framework, (later renamed the Community Engagement Framework). The framework consists 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.

BeltLine Citizen Participation Framework ChartThe Atlanta BeltLine’s initial Five Year Work Plan included a legislatively mandated Citizen Participation Frameowrk (later renamed the Community Engagement Framework). This chart shows the organizational flow of the five respective components of this framework.
BeltLine Citizen Participation Framework Enabling LegislationIn 2006, the Atlanta City Council adopted legislation approving the outline for the BeltLine Citizen Participation Framework (later renamed the Community Engagement Framework). The legislation establishes the five required components, to include: 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.The legislation also provides more specific descriptions for each component.


Tax Allocation District Advisory Committee (TADAC)

The Atlanta BeltLine Tax Allocation District Advisory Committee (TADAC) was established as a means of managing the TAD funding, and also engaging community members in the process.

View Documents+-

DocumentDescription
TADAC Enabling LegislationThe Atlanta City Council voted in 2004 to create the Atlanta BeltLine Tax Allocation District (TAD) to help fund the Atlanta BeltLine. The substitute legislation in 2006 outlines the requirements for TADAC membership and representation, and establishes the rules for structure, governance, reporting, and auditing.
TADAC BylawsThe Atlanta BeltLine Tax Allocation District Advisory Committee (TADAC) was approved by the Atlanta City Council in 2004. A subsequent vote in 2006 established the framework for the TADAC, and in 2007, TADAC Bylaws were adopted to establish the structure, purpose, and requirements for the organization.


Additional Supporting Documents

These documents provide further details about the framework for the development of the Atlanta BeltLine, and supplement the above categorized documents relating to TADAC functions.

DocumentDescription
Integrated Action Plan (IAP)ABI completed an Integrated Action Plan (“IAP”) in 2015 to determine how to achieve the 2005 Redevelopment Plan’s ambitious economic development and housing goals. The core elements of these goals are the following: 30,000 new permanent jobs; 48,000 one-year construction jobs; and 28,000 new housing units with 5,600 affordable workforce units.
Strategic Implementation PlanSimilar to the 2005 Atlanta BeltLine Redevelopment Plan and the original Plan of Work for 2006-2010 Budget (Five Year Work Plan), the Atlanta BeltLine’s 2030 Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) presents a framework to complete the short- and long-term elements of the Atlanta BeltLine program. Adopted in 2013, this document lays out a flexible strategy that will continue to be updated over the life of the program, bringing the full Atlanta BeltLine vision to fruition.
BeltLine Equitable Development PlanSuccessfully creating a vibrant sense of place requires that the newly created environment positively benefits the people living there, including both existing and new residents. The BeltLine Equitable Development Plan seeks to ensure geographic balance through equitable investment in all communities along the corridor, preserve single family neighborhoods, as well as cultural and historic qualities, minimize involuntary economic displacement through tax policies and affordble housing initiatives, and create long-term employment and small business opportunities.
Community Benefits AgreementThe Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) Guiding Principles are a broad set of rules developed to encourage, influence, and support the provision of community benefits. They were developed with input from the study group community and refined by a community-led working group , our TAD Advisory Committee, and a developer focus group. The CBA ensures that development on the Atlanta BeltLine is equitable and benefits all members of the community, contributes to a stronger local economy, and promotes increased public participation in the planning process.

Dedicated to Funding the Atlanta BeltLine Vision

The Atlanta BeltLine Tax Allocation District Advisory Committee (TADAC) is made up of a range of stakeholders representing various communities, governing bodies, and neighborhood groups. We are very appreciative of the time and energy they generously give to help make the Atlanta BeltLine vision a reality.
