Currently 27 Community Investment Districts (CIDs) span Metro Atlanta, with many making a huge impact through unique and thoughtful improvements in the communities they serve.
“Land and property owners willing to invest in themselves and the communities around them have seen a tremendous return on investment,” says the Council for Quality Growth. “They are also valuable in strengthening the unique character of each Metro Atlanta area.”
Here are a few examples of unique CID projects successfully working to improve, connect and evolve Metro Atlanta’s neighborhoods:
Cumberland CID: SunTrust Park is using nearly $5 billion to enhance public infrastructure and other area improvements.
Aerotropolis Atlanta CID: Installing an extensive greenway space around The Georgia Department of Transportation’s $10 million Diverging Diamond Interchange project.
West End CID: In partnership with MARTA, Atlanta United and the city of Atlanta, two new soccer fields will be installed at the Wet End MARTA station as part of the “Soccer in the Streets” initiative.
Buckhead CID: Plans for a signature park over GA400 consisting of a 9-acre green space is being explored as an opportunity to tie together residential and commercial districts on opposite sides of the highway.
Doraville Assembly CID: Grant money has been allocated for the collaborative effort to repurpose the General Motors Plant into the “Assembly Yard,” a one-of-a-kind hub for art, technology, creativity, living, recreation and commerce, slated for completion in 2022-2025.
These unique CID projects are only a part of Metro Atlanta’s vision to become an even more attractive city to live and work.
