The LCI ProgramThe Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) is a program developed by the Atlanta Regional Commission that awards planning grants to local governments to prepare and implement plans to enhance existing activity centers and corridors. The program also awards Federal transportation funding to implement the transportation elements (i.e. streetscapes, pedestrian connections) of LCI studies.
Midtown Roswell Redevelopment PlanThe Midtown Roswell Redevelopment Plan was approved by the Mayor and City Council in 2003 and was grandfathered into the LCI program. Midtown Roswell extends from Norcross Street to the SR 140/Holcomb Bridge Road area along SR 9/120. Click here to view the final report.
The City was awarded a grant of $2,246,400 through the LCI program (plus $561,000 match from the City) to implement the Alpharetta Street beautification. The Midtown Streetscape project was completed in mid-2012.
Atlanta Street Corridor/Town SquareThe Atlanta Street Corridor/Town Square was approved by Mayor and Council in 2008. The area includes the SR 9/120 corridor from Norcross Street southward to the River.
The most important project coming out of the study (thus far) is the Historic Gateway project currently in Design. The project will provide a number of transportation improvements most notably, the removal of the antiquated reversible lane systems south of SR 120 to the River along SR 9.
