ARC Transportation Survey

From Emory's Clifton Community Partnership director:  Please see the link below to a very important survey from the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC).  The ARC is asking citizens who reside in the 10-county ARC region to take this survey to provide their input on transportation projects they would like to see funded through the Transportation Investment Act referendum, which will be voted on in 2012.  As many of you know, legislation passed in 2010 by the Georgia General Assembly, divided the State into 12 regions, each charged with providing a list of projects that would benefit that specific region, to be included on the 2012 ballot.  The ARC region, in which most if not all of you reside, will approve a final list of projects in October 2011, which will be the ones voters will hopefully approve in 2012.  The final (constrained) project  list will be determined by the 21 member ARC Roundtable, which consists of the 10 county commission chairs (in DeKalb’s case, CEO Ellis), one mayor from each county and Atlanta Mayor Reed.  Each of the 10 counties have submitted their unconstrained projects  (“wish list”) to Todd Long, Planning Director of GDOT, who will work with the ARC Roundtable members over the next month or so to whittle down the large unconstrained list and determine which projects will ultimately be included on the final (constrained) list in October.  While there is specific criteria for a project to be considered for the final list, citizen support for a project will also factor into the decisions.

Beginning this summer, the northern edge of Emory's campus will take new form as construction gets under way at Emory Point.  The project, a mixed-use development by Cousins Properties, will transform the fenced area next to the Emory Inn, across from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

The site was originally planned for development in 2008 and 2009, but plans were put on hold following the economic downturn.

"Our first phase of development will include 440 luxury apartments, and approximately 80,000 square feet of retail space," says Jason Frost, vice president for development, Cousins Properties, Inc.  "The first phase generally is the same as contemplated before the downturn, but now has a slightly smaller retail space than was originally planned, and fewer housing units."

New park planned for Emory Village

From Emory Report: by David Payne. An oasis is taking shape amid the ongoing construction related to the Emory Village roundabout and streetscape improvements. The roadway for the new roundabout will open space that is currently covered in asphalt for a new "pocket park" adjacent to the Chevron gas station and North Oxford Road. The small park -- approximately 8,300 square feet –- will be one of the newly created public spaces in the revitalized Village.
