TSW is in Augusta this week for the Augusta Sustainable Development Implementation Program charrette. The charrette kicked off Tuesday night and a work-in-progress presentation will be held Saturday, November 17 at 10AM (Josey High School, 1701 15th Street, Augusta, GA 30901) to present the preliminary concepts for the study area.
The City of Augusta and the TSW Team are developing a detailed corridor plan and implementation program for a Priority Development Corridor, which is a 4.5 mile north-south “spine” in the core of the city. This spine runs from downtown to the vacant Regency Mall area along 15th Street, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and Deans Bridge Road. This project, called the Augusta Sustainable Development Implementation Program, entails four interrelated initiatives:
- Creating a detailed plan and implementation program for a cluster of transit-oriented development neighborhoods along the corridor
- Developing a detailed plan for a multi-modal transportation corridor
- Revising current codes to facilitate higher-density, mixed-use and mixed-income development
- Creating an implementation plan for green, affordable housing in this corridor
