Complete Streets

ARC has released an application for Fulton County municipalities that are interested in implementing existing plans, policies, or regulations related to complete streets. Successful applicants will receive technical assistance to help them engage residents, gather data on existing pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, and assess existing policy. There is no match requirement. Applications are due Friday, June 12.


Livable Centers Initiative Awards

ARC’s Community Development and Aging & Health Resources divisions partnered this year to offer funding to organizations or jurisdictions who would use tactical urbanism to create places that work for all residents regardless of their age or ability. The two successful recipients of the Livable Centers Initiative awards were the Atlanta Bicycle Campaign for its Atlanta Streets Alive event in Atlanta’s Historic West End and the City of Snellville.

Lifelong Communities Archives

In February of 2009 ARC, in partnership with Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company, hosted a nine-day Lifelong Communities (LLC) Charrette.  The full report, broken down below, documents the results of the LLC charrette and shows how each of the five “Lifelong Community” sites studied by the design team incorporate the lifelong community principles into its master plan.
