The TSW team recognized the importance of gathering input from the public and stakeholders during the design process for the BeltLine EIS Trail Design & Development. As a result, they conducted an extensive community engagement process that included public meetings, workshops, and online surveys to gather feedback on the proposed transit and trail alignments. The goal of this process was to ensure that the final design of the BeltLine corridor reflects the needs and desires of the communities it serves, and that it is a sustainable, transit-oriented development that preserves the natural and cultural resources along the corridor.
One of the key challenges faced by the TSW team during the study was the need to balance the competing demands of creating a sustainable, transit-oriented development while preserving the natural and cultural resources along the corridor. To address this challenge, the team used a variety of tools and techniques, such as GIS mapping, to identify and evaluate alternative alignments and minimize potential impacts on the environment.
The BeltLine EIS Trail Design & Development was a comprehensive and thorough process that involved input from a wide range of stakeholders, including community members, local organizations, and government agencies. The study resulted in a trail master plan and feasibility assessment that is responsive to the needs of the community, and that sets the stage for the implementation of a transit and trail network that will connect and revitalize the city’s neighborhoods and greenspaces.
Overall, the TSW team’s commitment to community engagement and environmental stewardship is evident in the final design of the BeltLine corridor. The trail master plan and feasibility assessment that was developed as a result of the study will serve as a guide for the development of the Atlanta BeltLine, and will help to create a more sustainable and connected city for all residents and visitors.
