District 11 Council member Marci Collier Overstreet and the City of Atlanta Department of City Planning are updating a plan for the Greenbriar Mall area. This joint effort between the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) and the City of Atlanta is to update a previous LCI study completed in 2001.

The update will focus on assessment of the 2001 plan, market analysis, conceptual plans, recommendations for land use, zoning, urban design, and transportation, and an implementation plan.

“Please join me as we work collaboratively with neighborhood residents and partners to capture our vision and priorities for transforming our neighborhoods contributing to a higher quality of life for our families and friends,” Council member Marci Collier Overstreet said.

Community involvement is key in ensuring the plan update truly captures the spirit and desire of the various voices that represent the communities around Greenbriar Mall. Residents, business owners, service organizations and other stakeholders will have several ways to take part in the process in person and online. Face-to-face engagement opportunities will include community meetings and workshops. A project website – https://www.atlantaga.gov/greenbriarlci – will serve as the online hub for project information such as key milestones, public meeting announcements and summaries, draft documents, and an online survey.
