Downtown Decides

“Downtown Decides!” is the participatory budgeting program created by Atlanta City Councilmember Amir Farokhi  in partnership with the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID).

Beginning in December 2019, the public was invited to submit their best ideas on how to spend $1 million Downtown on transportation infrastructure. Over 100 proposals were submitted, and 33 of them made the ballot. Over 3,479 people who live, work, study in, or visit Downtown voted to select the final 17 projects to be implemented by the Atlanta Department of Transportation and ADID.
