Beltline officials decided last year that the $2.8 billion project's streetcar or light-rail line will be built in segments. Now they just have to figure out which of those segments gets built first. And where they'll get the cash.

Officials with Atlanta Beltline Inc., the nonprofit tasked with planning and developing the 22-mile loop of parks, trails and transit, will kick off a "citywide conversation" on Thursday night at City Hall to discuss those topics.

Expect a very brief project overview to give people some context. Beltline planners will then present the different transit options and routes they're exploring. They'll point out which segments might be good candidates to receive funding from the regional transportation tax, which voters will decide in 2012. Officials will also seek the public's thoughts about the options.

According to the event's Facebook page, only 22 are listed as attending. We can do better than that, people.

The two-hour meeting at City Hall starts at 6 p.m.
