Presentation Description

During the summer on 2012, Livable Buckhead, working with AECOM, met with stakeholders, including residents, civic associations, commercial property owners and community leaders to gain feedback for the design of the GA400 trail. That feedback, along with experts’ advice, has led to the completion of approximately 30% of the design work for the trail project. Livable Buckhead’s executive director, Denise Starling along with AECOM design and planning consultant Carlos Perez, are now re-engaging stakeholders with the new designs.
