Public meeting to kick off new Livable Centers Initiative

Livable Centers Initiative

Students, faculty and alumni of Life University and SPSU, local residents, and business and property owners are invited to give feedback about a study that will redevelop Cobb Parkway and South Marietta Parkway, increase the visibility of Life and SPSU and help to connect the universities with the surrounding community.

Representatives from the city of Marietta and the two universities will hold a public information meeting on Thurs., Dec. 13, from 4-6 p.m. at the Life University Center for Chiropractic Education (CCE) Building, Room 149.

Speakers will discuss the study’s initial findings including the area’s design, land use, transportation and market conditions and trends. The meeting is the first of four that will be held to receive public feedback about the study.

The purpose of the Marietta University Enhancement District Livable Centers Initiative (MU2 LCI) study is to develop a plan for making the area in Marietta’s Green Tech Corridor that includes the universities, the Cobb Community Transit (CCT) bus terminal and its neighboring park-and-ride lot a more well-balanced activity center where people of all ages can live, work, study and play. A community-supported vision for the area and a five-year implementation plan will result.

The study is a joint initiative of the city of Marietta, Life University and SPSU and is funded through the Atlanta Regional Commission’s LCI program.

Signs leading to the meeting will be posted on the Life University campus. For more information, please go to the city of Marietta's website, click here, or contact Kyethea Clark, senior urban planner for the city of Marietta, at 770-794-5668.
