In order to execute a weekly pilot, we are choosing to focus on Peachtree Street for a number of reasons. Peachtree is in the heart of our city and links two of Atlanta's densest neighborhoods together -- Downtown and Midtown. Peachtree Street is also where our city’s momentum towards more sustainable modes of transportation is most visible. This corridor is where there’s a distinct opportunity for Atlanta Streets Alive to build on public enthusiasm for open streets and further establish sustainable transportation as an essential part of our city’s daily life and infrastructure.
Not only is there momentum, but strong support through partners like Central Atlanta Progress, Midtown Alliance, South Downtown, and Colony Square as well as a large concentration of retail businesses and restaurants -- all accessible by multiple modes of sustainable transportation.
