In early 2017, the Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance (the Alliance) and Aerotropolis Atlanta Community Improvement Districts (AACIDs) completed a comprehensive master plan for multi-use trails in the Aerotropolis Atlanta area that aims to connect the communities around Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL).
The AeroATL Greenway Plan builds upon the idea proposed in the 2015 Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance Blueprint and a significant amount of public input, considering existing trails, economic, environmental and social constraints, key connection points, safety issues, and best practices.
Then, in 2020, seven jurisdictions took the next step towards implementation of that master plan, winning a grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) to develop site plans and engineering concepts for a model mile in their respective community. This is the beginning of trail connectivity in the airport area!
