Latest Programs and Initiatives

The work of CAP and ADID includes a broad range of innovative programs and public-private partnerships focused on the economic development, the physical environment and the marketing of Downtown Atlanta.

Atlanta Streetcar

The long-term vision for the proposed streetcar includes a north-to-south route from the Brookhaven MARTA station to Fort McPherson and an east-to-west route connecting The King Center to the Centennial Olympic Park area west of Peachtree Street. Initial funding will kick start the first phase, focusing on the Downtown east-west route.

Woodruff Park

CAP/ADID has taken a leadership role in the creation of the Woodruff Park Master Plan. The Master Plan communicates and quides programming and capital recommendations to ensure an active and attractive park for years to come. Through agreement with the City of Atlanta, ADID is playing an active role in the daily management of Woodruff Park.

Stop Panhandling - Give Change that Makes Sense

Give Change That Makes Sense is the tagline of the three-tiered strategic campaign to address aggressive panhandling throughout the city of Atlanta, with a focus in the Downtown area. This initiative is a joint effort of Central Atlanta Progress (CAP), Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau (ACVB), the Mayor’s office, the Atlanta Police Department (APD) and other public certified law enforcement jurisdictions, with full participation of the private sector.
