Join Downtown residents, businesses and property owners as we build a better block! From 6-11 p.m. we'll "Brighten Up" Southwest Broad St. between Mitchell St. and MLK Jr. Dr. with a block party that's fun for the whole family. Expect food trucks, live entertainment and much more!
"I can't wait to welcome visitors to the south Broad Street area as we Brighten Up Broad Street. The storefronts and sidewalks are perfect for restaurants, coffeehouses, and community-oriented nonprofits. With the right mix of commercial tenants and residents, it could be a unique oasis in the middle of Downtown. Come on down for the fun on September 14 and envision the future with me!"
-Kwanza Hall, District 2 City Councilman
"We look forward to welcoming families as they explore Broad Street, a central corridor in one of Downtown Atlanta's most captivating neighborhoods. This event will showcase some of the unique places you can find only in Downtown - from historic storefronts like Miller's Rexall to one-of-a-kind restaurants like Lunacy Black Market. We are excited to participate in Brighten Up Broad and look forward to seeing more events and economic development in this area of Downtown."
-A.J. Robinson, President of Central Atlanta Progress
"The Department of Public Works is committed to enhancing the city’s quality of life. We are accountable for a sound infrastructure system which includes our transportation network. The recently repaired sidewalks along south Broad Street are part of a greater effort to promote walkability in City neighborhoods. The new improved lighting and sidewalks will go a long way towards promoting a thriving downtown experience. We appreciate our partnership with Central Atlanta Progress as we continue to work together to make our Downtown safe and inviting to residents and visitors."
-Richard Mendoza, Commissioner of Public Works, City of Atlanta
