"The Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable provides an excellent overview of what's going on across our community on so many important issues - transportation, building ordinances and water, to name a few. It's also a great place to network!"

Urban Placemaking and the Role of Community Improvement Districts
Friday, May 2, 2014 from 7:30 - 9:00 am

During the most recent real estate cycle, 50 percent of Atlanta’s metro area development occurred in walkable urban places. The fourth largest of these developments, the Cumberland Community Improvement District, recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. Community Improvement Districts (CIDs) are increasingly important for placemaking and walkable, sustainable urbanization. Join us for a conversation with Cumberland CID Chairman Tad Leithead to discuss the Cumberland CID’s successes as well plans for transit, continued urbanization, and, of course, the new Braves stadium.
