Description: LLCC will begin its series of neighborhood meetings regarding the Clifton Corridor Transit Initiative. The Clifton Corridor Alternatives Analysis involves investigating the need for high-capacity transit connections between the Lindbergh Center/Armour Yard area in north-central Atlanta to Clifton Road employment centers and the City of Decatur in west-central DeKalb County.

To assist LLCC in evaluating the proposed project\'s direct impact on our community and its compatibility with our own long-term vision, we enteredinto a contract with the Perkins +Will design firm. We\'re pleased to have Senior Transportation Planner, Heather Alhadeff, providing additional analysis.
