Transform Westside Summit Composite Land-Use Action Plan

2,532 views

Published on

Six months ago on March first, the Westside Future Fund officially kicked off the creation of a Westside Land-Use Action Plan in partnership with City’s Department of Planning and Community Development. The goal is an ACTIONABLE Land-Use Map with strategies that impact our target neighborhoods of English Avenue, Vine City, Ashview Heights, Washington Park, Just Us, and the Atlanta University Center. A primary focus is to identify better ways to support current residents (both renters and owners) by developing measures to protect against displacement, identifying prime areas for affordable housing, and attracting commerce.

Heading up our Action Team is internationally recognized urbanist Dhiru Thadani and his national and local experts that include Atlanta’s APD Urban Planning Management. His team started with an exhaustive review of more than 18 previous plans - then we began a monthly series on March 28 of week-long public and stakeholder meetings that began with Mims Park/Boone Corridor and ended with the Atlanta University Center. Each week ended with a presentation here at the Transform Westside Summit of a DRAFT Land-Use Action Plan for each target area that you can find on www.planwestside.com.

This is a composite of all those DRAFT plans following an intensive week of feedback and reviews with stakeholders and community leaders. Over the past six months, we’ve met face-to-face with more than 1,200 individuals passionate about bringing positive change to the Westside. What you’ll see this morning is still a draft - with another 60 days for the community and stakeholders to help us refine and approve a Land-Use Action Plan that the community, the Neighborhood Planning Units and the City can get behind.
