The City of Atlanta and their partners, Newport USRE and the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, seek public input on Phase I of the South Downtown Street Plan. The extent of Phase I is Peachtree Street SW, between Alabama Street and Martin Luther King Jr Drive.

In October 2017, Atlanta City Council adopted the South Downtown Street Plan, which established a vision for street enhancements As envisioned, the Street Plan for South Downtown is consistent with the recommendations of the City of Atlanta Transportation Plan, the Downtown Transportation Plan, as well as other City of Atlanta projects previously identified for the streets of South Downtown.

Public investment in the right-of-way enhancements will be delivered with, and leveraged by, several private real estate investments in South Downtown. The South Downtown Street Plan did not receive any funding from the Renew Atlanta municipal bond (2015) or the TSPLOST referendum (2016). As such, the Department of Public Works, Newport USRE, and the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District are designing and implementing elements of the street plan
along one block of Peachtree Street SW, which can be scaled throughout South Downtown. Funding requests to implement the plan in its entirety are active.

You are invited to attend the Public Information Open House Public to learn more about the project and share your comments.

During the informal, drop-by session the project team will share conceptual designs and receive your feedback regarding the planned enhancements.

If you have questions or comments about the project, please contact Wesley Brown at
