Central Atlanta Progress
Imagine Memorial Livable Centers Initiative
The evolution of Memorial Drive and its historic neighborhoods between Downtown Atlanta and DeKalb County, from a traditional industrial corridor into a diverse urban street, is picking up pace after decades of long-term planning by its residents and business owners.
This Livable Centers Initiative plan aims to recognize, codify and build on their efforts to make the Memorial Drive Corridor a walkable, diverse and active urban street where residents can live their lives without being dependent on vehicles for most trips. The study is focused on creatively exploring mobility and safety opportunities in parallel with selected land use and zoning recommendations along the corridor in order to bring more clarity to the path forward. The plan seeks to to capture, reconcile and consolidate decades of community planning work and stakeholder input.
