City of Atlanta District 12 Neighborhood Blueprint Plan
The Council District 12 Neighborhood Blueprint Plan was a planning study led by District 12 Council Member Joyce Sheperd’s Office and the City of Atlanta Department of City Planning. The District 12 Neighborhood Blueprint Plan focuses on the redevelopment potential at existing neighborhood commercial nodes.
The District 12 Neighborhood Blueprint Plan is envisioned to provide concepts and policies to guide transformative redevelopment at key nodes in the study area. This study aims to serve the multi-generational community with diverse uses and community amenities, and encourages economic development and job growth, while preserving the distinct character and history of each neighborhood for existing and new residents.
Key redevelopment nodes/commercial districts were identified, with the help of market analysis and community input. These nodes have the most potential to become thriving commercial districts, due to visibility from through traffic, high traffic counts, existing structures capable of renovation, existing plans and investors/ developers interested in redevelopment.
