06 Jun A Curbside Discussion – Corridor Revitalization in Atlanta
Date: Tuesday, June 13
Location: Manuel’s Tavern
Registration is required: https://www.georgiaconservancy.org/greeneggs
For the summer installment of Green Eggs & Ham – an ongoing program of Generation Green from the Georgia Conservancy – panelists and attendees will discuss the investment, design, and community involvement necessary to revitalize some of Atlanta’s most historic and culturally significant transportation corridors.
From Peachtree Street to Memorial Drive to Buford Highway to Howell Mill, Atlanta’s embrace of the automobile as the dominant mode of transportation is evident. But, changes are afoot. An understanding of the multi-modal needs and wants of Atlantans is growing and the many economic benefits of inclusive corridor planning are beginning to be recognized.
Join us for an engaging discussion with panelists from various organizations to learn about the changes that have already taken place within many of Atlanta’s transportation corridors and what we may expect to see across the city in the future.
