Woody Giles Presents Hampton LCI Recommendations
The town of Hampton, located 25 miles south of Atlanta, has recently completed a Livable Centers Initiative study with the help of TSW, a community planning firm. The study focused on revitalizing downtown Hampton and creating a more livable and sustainable community.
Woody Giles, the project manager for the study and a community planner with TSW, presented the recommendations to the community during a recent Open House event. The proposed plans include expanding the system of sidewalks and bike paths in the town, as well as creating a mixed-use village that could serve as a focal point for a proposed rail station.
The revitalization of downtown Hampton would involve a variety of improvements, such as enhancing public spaces, improving the streetscape, and creating new development opportunities. The proposed mixed-use village would be a pedestrian-friendly area with a mix of residential and commercial spaces, as well as public amenities such as parks and plazas.
In addition to these recommendations, the study also identified a number of other initiatives that could improve the livability of Hampton, such as creating a new public transportation system and improving access to healthy food options. These initiatives are all designed to make Hampton a more sustainable and equitable community, with a focus on promoting walkability, connectivity, and access to public amenities.
The Livable Centers Initiative study process is an important step for Hampton as it seeks to create a more livable and sustainable community. With the help of TSW, the town has developed a set of recommendations that will guide future development and help to make Hampton a more vibrant and connected place to live.
