Connect Atlanta Plan in-depth workshop dates

The Connect Atlanta Plan, the city's first-ever comprehensive transportation plan, will be holding workshops throughout February and March at various locations around town. Residents and stakeholders will have a chance to engage project planners and provide input as to what exactly they would like to see in terms of transportation fixes in the city proper. This public-focused effort is still early in the process and planners stress that now is a great time to make sure your voice is heard. Pasted below is the release and information for the first workshop; others follow after the jump.

The Connect Atlanta Plan is a yearlong planning process to develop the City’s first citywide transportation plan. These interactive sessions are designed for you to drop by at your convenience and work with us on specific transportation challenges in your area. While the public can come anytime during the day, each multi-day workshop will have an introductory and final meeting in order to introduce you to the plan and workshop and then to present the work accomplished during the week. Your input is critical to this effort; please join us in your neighborhood!
