SIX BIG IDEAS: 

1. Develop a district-wide multi-use trail to connect and celebrate the area history and culture.
2. Activate and enliven a continuous network of streets and destinations.
3. Enhance mobility to and from GA400 and beyond.
4. Foster a distinctive Buckhead identity along Lenox Road.
5. Diversify housing opportunities.
6. Define the civic heart of the community through parks and green space.

BCID’s Role: 

The Buckhead CID will be pursuing projects that are consistent with the Six Big Ideas found in the BUCKHEAD REdeFINED master plan. In the short-term, the Buckhead CID will advance the Lenox Road Complete Street project, which will provide pedestrian and bicycle access from Piedmont Road to East Paces Ferry Road. The BCID will also launch the scoping study to assess the feasibility of a new GA400 interchange. Lastly, the BCID will study the Piedmont Road corridor, from Peachtree Road to the Buford Connector, to determine solutions that will create a safer, more walkable environment.
