Walking Tour of Castleberry Hill and Atlanta University Center, Oct 4

Posted by on Sep 25, 2014 in News |

Falcons_stadium-site-cropped-I.S2.-1024x691Join us on October 4 to talk with elected officials, community leaders and others about increasing connectivity between the Atlanta University Center, Castleberry Hill, the new Falcons stadium and downtown Atlanta. The walk has two options-

One-mile walk
If you’d like your walk to include the stadium area, meet us at 4pm at International Plaza between the Georgia Dome and Phillips Arena. (close to main entrance of the Dome/Phillips Arena Marta station)

Two-mile walk
If you’d prefer a shorter walk, join us at 5pm in front of Atlanta University Center’s Robert Woodruff Library, 111 James P. Brawley Dr. SW.

For both Castleberry Hill and the Atlanta University Center, connectivity issues remain challenging. The new Falcons stadium and other proposed developments could help overcome challenges – or make them even worse. We look forward to learning your ideas on re-connecting downtown neighborhoods.

We’ll finish with a reception at the intersection of Peters and Fair Street. Together with food trucks and local vendors, we’ll transform a parking lot into a lively public space. For more info, visit PEDS.  See you there!
