Thought Leadership: Some Much-Needed Infrastructure Love Underway in Buckhead Village
This is a Saporta Report Thought Leadership piece by Jim Durrett, executive director – Buckhead CID
In 2015, the Buckhead CID was approached by some commercial property owners in the part of Buckhead that many people refer to as the “West Village.” This area is bounded by Paces Ferry Place, East Andrews, Roswell Road and Irby Avenue, along with properties on the east side of Roswell Road (see figure). These property owners were requesting to come into the Buckhead CID and tax themselves so that improvements could be made to enhance safety, aesthetics and walkability.
After an initial analysis of the opportunity was completed, The Buckhead CID board of directors unanimously approved the initiative to expand the CID into the West Village.
