Project Background
In February 2016, the cities of Chamblee and Doraville were awarded $96,000 in federal transportation funds for a new Livable Centers Initiative Study for the Buford Highway corridor.  The grant provides 80 percent of funding for the study, with each city providing a 20 percent match (the total investment for the study is $120,000).  Although this is a joint project with both cities, the main point of contact will be the City of Doraville.

Following a competitive RFP bid process, a consultant team was selected to assist both cities in conducting the Study.  The LCI consultant team is comprised of:

  • Sixpitch
  • WeLoveBuHi
  • Perez Planning + Design
  • Nelson Nygaard
  • Canvas Planning Group
  • Mosaic Urban Partners
The Buford Highway Masterplan is part of the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Livable Centers Initiative (LCI), a program that helps communities envision and fund sustainable growth through planning studies and transportation projects in metro area downtowns, activity centers, and corridors.  The project began in September 2016.  The purpose of the Buford Highway Masterplan is to provide a community-based vision and plan to revitalize and enhance the Buford Highway corridor by promoting Buford Highway’s multicultural diversity while advancing multimodal forms of transportation, increased mobility and safety, and an enhanced quality of life, including housing opportunities, for residents, workers, and visitors of all ages and incomes.
