The City of Atlanta is updating the Connect Atlanta Plan, its first comprehensive transportation plan adopted in 2008. The result will be Atlanta’s Transportation Plan, which will support the long-term vision of the Atlanta City Design effort and provide policy and project recommendations to build a world class, sustainable transportation system that addresses congestion in a growing and evolving city. Atlanta’s Transportation Plan will leverage local funding sources through the MARTA and T-SPLOST sales taxes and the Renew Atlanta infrastructure bond program. The plan also ties into regional and federal funding opportunities through the Atlanta Regional Commission.

Gabe Klein was the CityFi lead on the project and focused on stakeholder engagement at all levels, strategic visioning and communication strategy. CityFi also drafted the Implementation Strategy focused on “future proofing” around policies, infrastructure, services and technology that is rapidly changing the way cities work, and can be utilized for positive change, but should not distract from the fundamentals that make cities like Atlanta great.
