The AeroATL Greenway Plan will be a comprehensive trail master plan for the Aerotropolis area, connecting the communities around Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (H-JAIA). Each of the partners (Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance, Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs, College Park, Clayton County, East Point, Forest Park, Fulton County, Hapeville, and H-JAIA) have identified a need for a greenway plan through the Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance Blueprint, approved in 2016. In addition to the Atlanta Regional Commission grant, each of the local partners have contributed funds toward the study.
The AeroATL Greenway Plan will build on the greenway idea proposed in Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance Blueprint, considering existing trails, topography, key connection points and best practices. A significant amount of public input will be sought to complement the technical work.

Over the past 35 years, the National Main Street Center has developed a Main Street America network of over 2,000 downtowns dedicated to catalyzing reinvestment and fostering pride of place. Hapeville’s Main Street Program has been in place since 2003. As per the National Main Street Center’s requirements, all accredited Main Street cities must have a signed MOU to retain DCA services and use of the official Main Street America ™ name. Should the Mayor and Council approve this document, the Main Street Board Chair and Staff Program Manager will also be required to review and sign the document. The 2018 MOU is essentially the same as 2017 MOU.
As per the National Main Street Center’s 2018 requirements, all nationally accredited Main Street cities must have a current signed sublicensing agreement to retain the DCA services and use of the official Main Street America ™ name. This will allow use of the National Program “Main Street America” accreditation logo and the “National Main Street Center” words, logos, and branding.
Council has authorized city staff to review the cost associated with and specify budget amendments if necessary to cover the costs in the FY2018 budget or to budget for costs in the FY2019 budget.
At this time, the Mayor opens the floor to comments from the audience. Comments should relate to a specific agenda item, not listed on the agenda for a Public Hearing, or to a concern within the jurisdiction of the City. Mayor and Council meetings serve the purpose of conducting city business and are not a forum for the unlimited expression of opinion. The Mayor reserves the right to limit comments to matters germane to city business and may refer speakers to the City Manager or other staff for resolution.
