Beltline officials will hold a "citywide conversation" tomorrow to discuss the design and look of the 22-mile loop of parks, trails and transit.

The multi-year design process is led by well-regarded firms Perkins+Will, which includes Beltline visionary Ryan Gravel among its staff, and James Corner Field Operations, the team behind New York's High Line. The two teams have been tasked with fine-tuning all aspects of the $2.8 billion project. That includes everything from where the utilities will be buried to where the bike trails will wind — and ultimately, exactly how the massive loop that's proposed to one day circle the city will look.

Tomorrow night's your chance to see what they've crafted thus far, along with the myriad design obstacles they've encountered while working with a project that snakes through more than 45 Atlanta neighborhoods.

The fun starts at 6:30 p.m. at Friendship Baptist Church on Mitchell Street near the Georgia Dome.
