Garrett Hyer, a planner at TSW, has leveraged his research on airport cities around the world to enhance the development of community improvement districts (CIDs) around the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. While pursuing his studies at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Hyer conducted research on airport cities worldwide, studying their unique characteristics and how they interact with the surrounding communities. His research has proved valuable in informing the development of CIDs around the airport.
Community improvement districts are public-private partnerships that enable commercial property owners and businesses to invest in infrastructure, public safety, beautification, and other enhancements in designated areas. These districts leverage public and private funds to make targeted investments that stimulate economic growth, create jobs, and enhance the quality of life in the surrounding communities.
The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world, and the surrounding communities are in need of revitalization. Hyer’s research on airport cities has given him a unique perspective on the opportunities and challenges presented by the airport and its impact on the surrounding areas. He has applied this knowledge to his work at TSW, working with local stakeholders to develop CIDs that will help enhance the quality of life in these communities.
As a planner at TSW, Hyer brings a wealth of expertise in urban design, planning, and community development. He has worked on a range of projects, including master plans, transit-oriented development plans, and corridor studies. His knowledge of airport cities and community improvement districts has proven invaluable in his work on the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport CIDs.
In conclusion, Garrett Hyer’s research on airport cities around the world has been instrumental in informing the development of community improvement districts around the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. His work at TSW has enabled him to apply this knowledge to his community development projects, helping to create vibrant, thriving communities that benefit from the economic activity generated by the airport.
