to hold hearing in Rollins School, Jan. 22
To provide information on two proposed transit lines that will have
a significant impact on Emory, MARTA is holding a public hearing
on Thursday, Jan. 22, from 4 to 6 pm, in the Rita Ann Rollins Room
in the Rollins School of Public Health.
One proposal, the “C-loop,” would provide much-needed
transit from the Clifton Corridor to the MARTA Lindbergh station.
The number of comments provided to the Atlanta Regional Commission
(ARC) during the hearing process is a major consideration in the
ARC’s final recommendations. Many transportation proposals
compete for very limited funding, and unless the ARC receives a substantial
number of supportive comments for the C-Loop, it could be delayed
even further into the future.
For more information, contact Stacey Paschal in the Office of Governmental
and Community Affairs at 404-727-5166.
