Aerotropolis Atlanta Key Initiatives
The Aerotropolis Atlanta Blueprint is a first of its kind strategy for the Atlanta region—providing the framework and impetus to transform metro Atlanta's Southside around Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). The Blueprint is the Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance's visionary, community-derived development plan that intends to leverage the airport as a major asset to drive economic investment, job growth, and quality of life in the area.
The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) led an effort in partnership with local governments, CIDs, and the Alliance to develop the Blueprint, which was completed and adopted by the Alliance board of directors in July 2016. Using a $200,000 grant, ARC contracted with Jacobs and its subs over a 12-month in-depth process to produce the report. This process included a series of tasks that began with considering existing conditions and gaining stakeholder insight, then developing a structured framework around key goals and unique strengths of the area, and concluded with stakeholder review and sign-off on the final product. The final document provides a framework of recommended actions that will guide the Alliance into the future.
