Central Atlanta Progress and the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (CAP/ADID) are working with design consultant TSW to research, evaluate, design, document and execute creative placemaking and ‘tactical urbanism’ enhancements for the South Downtown MARTA Makeover Project – which includes the Five Points and Garnett rail stations. The project intends to implement quick, inexpensive, ‘tactical’ improvements in the Spring of 2015 with the expectation that the immediate tactical improvements will directly influence the short and long-term visioning plan.

We Need Your Input!
The South Downtown MARTA Makeover Project team seeks public input on the final design plans to improve the appearance of and experience at the Five Points and Garnett MARTA stations. The public is invited to stop by the Five Points MARTA station intercept during the times listed below to provide feedback and input.
