City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Project Responsibilities
In 1999, USI was contracted by the City of Atlanta to prepare the
City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Plan. Development of the City
of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Plan involved collecting, assessing,
and mapping data, preparing the Greenway Acquisition Plan, and facilitating
public participation throughout the planning process.
Following plan development, the City of Atlanta retained USI to
implement the Greenway Acquisition Plan. Implementation activities
involve the acquisition of selected stream-corridor lands; performing
Phase I environmental site assessments; implementing restoration
projects; inspecting greenway properties; collecting data to determine
the environmental and public health benefits resulting from the
establishment of a greenway; hosting citizen advisory committee
meetings; and advertising the Greenway Acquisition Project through
website and brochure development.
The City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Plan is currently being
implemented by USI and will continue through March, 2007.
