GET INVOLVED

The Northwest Atlanta Industrial Area is an "economic ecosystem" filled with a vast array of stakeholders working together to sustain quality jobs, economic activity, and a vibrant sense of community in area neighborhoods. Understanding how each stakeholder group influences and is impacted by freight movement is central to this study and paramount to improving the transportation system. The Project Team is committed to a participatory and inclusive planning process and has developed various opportunities for the community to participate and provide feedback.

INVOLVING EVERYONE

The Northwest Atlanta Industrial Area is a complex mix of growing residential neighborhoods, active commercial corridors, multiple Community Improvement Districts (CIDs) and Tax Allocation Districts (TADs), and hundreds of industrial businesses occupying approximately 30 million square feet of industrial/flex space. The proximity and mixing of industry with residential and commercial uses can lead to conflicts and unwanted freight movement in neighborhoods and corridors. This study aims to identify the priorities and needs of all stakeholders, including those with different viewpoints, to find ways to coexist and improve mobility and safety for everyone. Every voice matters.
