Imagine Memorial is a study of the Memorial Drive corridor commissioned by Atlanta City Council Member Natalyn Archibong in Fall 2014. The semester-long study was conducted by graduate students in Georgia Tech’s School of City and Regional Planning, led by former Atlanta Planning Commissioner Michael Dobbins.
The original 2014 study is available on Council Member Archibong’s website. Since the study was completed, the plan has received hundreds of comments from citizens and public officials. The plan is currently being revised, expanded, and updated with the goal of earning “grandfathered” approval as an Atlanta Regional Commission Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) plan. When those revisions are complete, the draft plan must be presented to the community for additional input and further revisions. Then the plan must be adopted by legislation of the Atlanta City Council and approved by the Atlanta Regional Commission.
