1 A N N U A L R E P O R T Fostering a Culture of Vision: 70 Years of Atlanta Leadership

2 vision and leadership Being a transportation hub makes Atlanta a valuable asset for multiple stakeholders, including Mayor Hartsfield, pictured here. This report represents a year of reflection and celebration of the co-dynamics of vision and leadership that are the sustaining values for Downtown Atlanta. More than any external pressure, Atlanta s leaders were driven to improve and build this city by their deep desire and pride to see things better for all who lived, worked or visited here. Our bent toward hospitality and community were deeply held by those who were born here and readily adopted by those who moved here. Strong committed leadership is a rare commodity in today s world, but in the midst of all of the changes in Atlanta since 1941, that virtue has remained our cornerstone. When Atlanta s leaders banded together in 1941, there was a belief that to achieve its potential, our city needed strategic and responsible investment so that all would benefit. Pictured: Peachtee Street in The Central Atlanta Improvement Association (CAIA) is chartered. Delta Air Lines decides to make Atlanta its home. A Highway and Transportation Plan for Atlanta recommends a Downtown freeway system, a modern bus terminal on air rights above the Gulch and a unified railroad passenger terminal. At CAIA s request, the Georgia General Assembly enacts legislation to build Georgia Plaza Park that is now part of Underground Atlanta. Mayor Hartsfield speaks at the CAIA annual meeting emphasizing the importance of the Downtown business community in maintaining decent race relations. O U R 7 0 Y E A R H I S T O R Y 1

3 THE CREATION OF THE AMBASSADOR FORCE BY CAP HAD A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE HEALTH OF DOWNTOWN. MOREOVER, IT HELPED ENABLE THE EXPANSION OF GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY BY MAKING DOWNTOWN SAFER AND CLEANER. Carl V. Patton, Central Atlanta Progress Chairman Emeritus, Georgia State University our mission We aim to build a 21st century Downtown as the heart of the Atlanta region a vibrant community with strong leadership and sustainable infrastructure that is safe, livable, diverse, economically viable, accessible, clean, hospitable and entertaining. For 70 years now we have owned this mission. Decade after decade we have challenged the status quo and raised our horizons to see a future community that was growing stronger to meet the demands and expectations of all its members. And 2010 was no exception to this legacy. While the skyline expanded, so did Atlanta s reputation for hospitality and hard work. Pictured: Downtown Atlanta, circa The Uptown Association is formed to promote the Ponce de Leon Avenue / North Avenue corridor. It also worked to promote housing code enforcement and aesthetic improvements in what is now Midtown. The launch of Atlanta magazine was an integral piece in building support for the core of the city. By communicating the stories of vision, courage and achievement of the people who made up the mosaic of our town, Atlanta magazine helped shape our conscience, outlook and sense of home. CAIA and the Uptown Association merge to form Central Atlanta Progress, Inc. (CAP) to focus on market-rate housing, faster public investments and support for citywide improvements. Central Area Study CAP s first comprehensive planning project which focuses on transportation issues, envisions MARTA and a massive expansion of expressway and mass transit systems to better link Downtown with the airport and surrounding suburbs. 2 3

4 PRESIDENT&CHAIRMEN SLETTER Fostering a Culture of Vision: 70 Years of Leadership TAkINGCAREOFTODAYWITHANEYETOTHEFUTURE Thoughtful planning led to a positive integration of ideas as well as the combination of functionality and beauty, such as urban greenspace like this one located on Peachtree Street Although few of us were around in 1941, we know a thing or two about the status of Atlanta some 70 years ago. What we call Downtown today was Atlanta back then, Delta Air Lines decided to make Atlanta its home in 1941 and the Atlanta Crackers played baseball at Ponce De Leon Park. And here s another historical note there was a group of business and civic leaders who had a vision to make Atlanta a better place for everyone and they formed the Central Atlanta Improvement Association to focus their efforts. We are certainly beneficiaries of the vision and caring of those early leaders who felt strongly that the emerging opportunities for Atlanta required commitment, focus and collaboration to fully realize greatness. But not greatness as an end in itself. There was a sense of stewardship that went along with the desire to conduct business, educate, or serve all who lived and visited here. Certainly, Atlanta has realized some of the dreams of those leaders who rose to the occasion. The mix of people and brands that have been synonymous with Atlanta around the world include: The Coca-Cola Company, Martin Luther King, Jr., Georgia Institute of Technology, Ted Turner, Billy Payne, The Home Depot, Andrew Young, John Portman, Morehouse College, Emory University, the 1996 Olympics, Hank Aaron, Robert Woodruff, Mayor Hartsfield, Maynard Jackson and many more who will be recognized for their contributions many years from now. This 2010 report reflects on some of the characteristics of our planning and development endeavors that have proved valuable year after year. As always, we will share with you what has been collectively accomplished in 2010 in carrying out our mission. In last year s report, we at Central Atlanta Progress (CAP) and the Atlanta Downtown n Improvement District (ADID) suggested that Atlanta would prove resilient and equal to the task of thriving in a challenging environment. We have many reasons now to affirm that judgment. We convened over 200 stakeholders in the inaugural GeorgiaForward Conference in Macon to foster solutions for all Georgians, propelled the 3rd annual BIKEFEST that focused on alternate forms of transportation and hosted the sold-out Downtown Development Day, which recognized excellence and featured Bernie Marcus talking about the economic impact of the Georgia Aquarium, including how 50% of visitors come from outside the state. The much anticipated Georgia State University football team kicked off a successful inaugural season that included home games at the Georgia Dome. And the school had a record enrollment for the academic year. Redevelopment projects like 200 Peachtree, new dining venues and the continuation of multiple streetscape enhancements and signalization projects show our commitment to infrastructure improvement that is vital to future-looking cities like ours. When US Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood, and US Representative, John Lewis, announced in October that the U.S. Department of Transportation had granted $47.6 million in funding for the proposed Atlanta Streetcar project, there was a sense that we had come full circle. While we see a multiplicity of challenges and opportunities before us today, they are similar to those faced by our forebears some 70 years ago. And we will address those challenges and opportunities with the same dedication and creativity that they did. We will do it because we care about Atlanta and because we have a vision to make our city better. Come join us! CAP organizes Park Central Communities, Inc., to develop a multi-use project on 78 acres in the Bedford-Pine Urban Redevelopment Area, west of Boulevard and north of Freedom Parkway in what was called the Bedford Pine neighborhood and prior to that Buttermilk Bottom. Slums with unpaved streets gave way to massive urban revitalization and construction of large projects such as the Atlanta Civic Center, the Georgia Power headquarters and new housing development. Bedford Pine is now known as Central Park. IN 2010, WE ENGAGED IN A COMBINATION OF FOLLOWING THROUGH ON OUR COMMITMENTS AND AMPLIFYING OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE.

5 sustainability THE ACCOMPLISHMENT I AM PROUDEST OF DURING MY TENURE AS CHAIRMAN OF CAP WAS THE FORMATION OF THE ATLANTA DOWNTOWN IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT (ADID) AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE AMBASSADOR FORCE. THAT EFFORT CHANGED THE IMAGE OF DOWNTOWN AND STARTED THE ROAD BACK THAT WE ALL ENJOY TODAY. A. D. Correll, Central Atlanta Progress Chairman Chairman, Atlanta Equity Investors, LLC Building a sustainable Downtown is a multifaceted endeavor, but we re not the only ones thinking about it. In practically every facility, hotel, classroom, office and shop, people are looking for solutions to become healthier, serviceable, safer and environmentally sustainable. All of this points to the importance of fostering leadership to serve the rest of the community now and in the future. Another factor in sustainability is the natural movement of people and their workplaces to a more convenient or desirable place. In fact, current research shows that many people are moving back to the city: To put it simply, the suburbs have lost their sheen: both young workers and retiring Boomers are actively seeking to live in densely packed, mixed-use communities that don t require cars - that is, cities or revitalized outskirts in which residences, shops, schools, parks and other amenities exist close together. In the 1950s, suburbs were the future, says University of Michigan architecture and urban-planning professor, Robert Fishman, commenting on the striking cultural shift. The city was then seen as a dingy environment. But today it s these urban neighborhoods that are exciting and diverse and exploding with growth. Harvard Business Review, May 2010 WHILE FUTURE DESIGNS AND PLANNING ARE BEING CONSIDERED, MANY CREATIVE IDEAS ARE BEING IMPLEMENTED RIGHT NOW. Downtown Transportation Management Association s (TMA) partner, Cousins Properties, continued its commitment to reducing congestion and air pollution in Downtown Atlanta with the recent implementation of a bike share program. The bike share program enables employees in 191 Peachtree Tower and the American Cancer Society Center to reserve one of two bicycles for short trips during the day. This program provides increased mobility options and adds flexibility for employees taking their lunch breaks, running errands or incorporating exercise into their workday; especially those who use alternative commute modes to get to work. Georgia State recently acquired two hotels that were converted into student housing for the University. The hotels are adjacent to the main campus. This transaction is attractive for all parties involved, as well as the hotel market in Atlanta. The University gains convenient student housing at an attractive price below replacement costs, and the seller receives a fair value for its real estate in a challenging market, Bob Hunter of Hunter Realty, the hotel investment advisory firm who sold the hotels, noted. Visionary leadership put in place a livable Downtown for a growing workforce and existing residents seen here near Hurt Park, circa CAP forms the Downtown Environmental Patrol, which evolves into the Atlanta Clean City Commission. Keep Atlanta Beautiful, formerly Atlanta Clean City Commission, was created in 1976 under Mayor Maynard Jackson s administration to tackle the issues of litter and environmental awareness. CAP establishes a $63 million mortgage consortium for close-in neighborhoods, understanding that healthy neighborhoods near Downtown would be beneficial to all. A mounted patrol financed by CAP is instituted as a means of increasing police visibility. Today, the program has 12 officers and is supported by the Atlanta Police Foundation. A plan for redevelopment of Underground Atlanta aims to enhance the 1960s/1970s entertainment district. 6 7

6 after collaboration In many ways, the growth and success of Atlanta was realized through collaboration and partnerships. Given the complexities of this new era, the time for tackling problems in isolation is over, said A. J. Robinson, CAP s current. We need comprehensive approaches. And we need partners who share our vision and who bring fresh ideas and new resources to the table. The desire for a unified vision led us to help gather Georgia s academic, civic, economic and government leaders in August for the launch of a constructive and visionary conversation. Over 200 stakeholders, representing every corner of the state, convened on the campus of Macon State College for the 2010 GeorgiaForward Forum. Under the banner of Together, improving the state of our state, attendees discussed the most pressing challenges facing Georgians today, including the economy, water equity, education and transportation. By taking a unified look at our state s issues we stand to improve the quality of our state s economy and infrastructure for future generations. The collaborative effort by non-profit organizations and business leadership has also been a hallmark of Atlanta s progress over the past 70 years. A recent example of this kind of alliance can soon be found at Woodruff Park in Downtown Atlanta. Playable 10, in partnership with ATOP (Atlanta s Taskforce on Play) and the Georgia Institute of Technology, sponsored an international design competition for an extraordinarily accessible and inventive playground design for Woodruff Park. Bank of America will support construction of the design challenge winner, providing a familyfriendly improvement for the park nestled in the heart of Downtown. Five Points was symbolic of the expansion of Downtown and the role it played in giving strength to the whole region. Pictured: Central City Park (now Woodruff Park), circa CAP starts the Downtown Child Development Center (DCDC), which provides childcare for 120. Supported by major Downtown employers, DCDC was originally located in the old Rich s Store for Homes before moving to the Healey Building, its home for many years. CAP organizes the Underground Festival Development Company (UFDC) to coordinate development of Underground Atlanta. UFDC utilizes an innovative public-private partnership to complete the project. The Central Area Study II, sponsored by the City, Fulton County and CAP at a cost of $1.7 million is unveiled. The emphasis shifts to quality of life in the Central Area. COMNET, the Security Communications Network, is initiated by CAP in cooperation with the Atlanta Police Department (APD). Monitored 24/7 by APD, COMNET is Operation Shield s exclusive two-way radio security communications network. CAP creates COPA, Inc. to redevelop the area around the new Centennial Olympic Park. 8 9

7 ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST MOMENTS THAT I CAN RECALL WAS THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE 1996 OLYMPICS COMING TO ATLANTA. IT WAS A MOMENT OF GREAT CELEBRATION AND PRIDE THAT EVERYONE SHARED. YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT, CAP HAS BUILT A GREAT ASSET, NOT JUST FOR THE CITY OF ATLANTA, BUT FOR THE WHOLE METROPOLITAN AREA BECAUSE SO MUCH DEPENDS ON DOWNTOWN S SUCCESS. B. Franklin Skinner, Central Atlanta Progress Chairman globalization Being accessible from anywhere at anytime, Atlanta has had the unique role of giving greatly to the nations of the world while also receiving great gifts from the citizens of most every nation. Hosting the 1996 Olympic Games was perhaps the exclamation point of our becoming a host to the world. But our business communities; educational institutions; healthcare and medical organizations and cultural, social and artistic communities have been connecting globally for decades. Here are some ways that our assets translate into benefits for all of us in 2010: The Aaron s International Soccer Challenge featured Mexico s top team Club America versus the world s richest club UK s Manchester City at the Georgia Dome on July 28, The match was a significant effort for Atlanta to show the world it could host international soccer. The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market opened in January of 2011 kicking off AmericasMart s 50thanniversary year. This is the longest running market in the U.S. and customers come from all over the world to do their purchasing. Not only have companies like Coca-Cola become international brands, they ve also become investors and advocates for keeping Atlanta strong. Pictured: the intersection of Peachtree and Pryor, circa Global brands like Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines, UPS, The Home Depot, CNN, Newell Rubbermaid and Equifax give evidence that Atlanta has not only launched global companies, but has attracted global leaders to its halls of commerce. Attracting global companies speaks most to the fruit of the culture of visionary leadership that has established an up and to the right trajectory for all of Atlanta s endeavors. The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site has been one of Atlanta s most visited destinations for many years, with more than 700,000 people from around the world enjoying the experience in The National Park Service marked the 30th Anniversary of the site in It was the visionary leadership of Ted Turner that put cable TV in the big leagues and launched the 24/7 news cycle. And doing his entrepreneurial work from Atlanta inspired others to do the same. Pictured: CNN camera person, circa Just before the Olympics, the Ambassador Force of Downtown Atlanta begins operation as part of the newly created Atlanta Downtown Improvement District. The presence of the Ambassador Force, combined with initiatives of Atlanta s police force, contributed to the drop in crime in Downtown Atlanta for three straight years. CAP s Municipal Court Study leads to the creation of the Atlanta Community Court. Northyards Business Park, an urban reclamation project, is developed by CAP affiliate, COPA. CAP and COPA gain approvals for the Westside Tax Allocation District. CAP creates Homeward, Inc. to battle homelessness that leads to the Rock, a homeless intake center. ADID initiates the Clean Team and expands its project area to 200 blocks. And CAP launches First Thursdays Art Walk

8 IN 1971, CAP PERFORMED THE CENTRAL AREA STUDY THAT WAS THE FIRST COMPREHENSIVE STUDY FOCUSING ON TRANSPORTATION AND OTHER PLANNING ISSUES FOR THE CENTRAL CITY OF ATLANTA. THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY VALIDATED THE REQUIREMENT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF MARTA, HIGHLIGHTED THE IMPORTANCE OF A CLOSE TO TOWN AIRPORT, DEVELOPED A MASTER PLAN FOR THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT FOR HARTSFIELD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, AND PROVED THE IMPORTANCE OF THE EXPANSION OF CONVENTION FACILITIES THAT LED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE GEORGIA WORLD CONGRESS CENTER. MANY OF THE INITIATIVES PROPOSED WERE ADOPTED AND BECAME MAJOR FACTORS IN ATLANTA S RISE AS A TRULY INTERNATIONAL CITY. Mr. John C. Portman, Jr. CAP Chairman hospitality From the mid-1950s, with the building of AmericasMart, Atlanta was on a trajectory of hospitality. Our hospitality and entertainment assets have remained a strong foundation for our success. Philips Arena has once again earned international acclaim as a top ranked entertainment venue, according to industry-leading publication Pollstar magazine. For the first half of the 2010 calendar year, Philips Arena has been named the No. 2 concert and events venue in the United States and the No. 5 concert and events venue in the world, based on attendance figures. Philips Arena hosted sold-out shows for such acts as the Black- Eyed Peas, George Strait & Reba McEntire, Jay-Z, John Mayer, Bon Jovi, Alicia Keys and Nickelback. Philips Arena is also home to the NBA s Atlanta Hawks, the NHL s Atlanta Thrashers and the WNBA s Atlanta Dream. The new World of Coca-Cola greeted its three millionth visitor in April after less than three years of operation. We re so excited to have had three million guests from all around the world visit us during our first three years, said Russell Jacobs, of Retail and Attractions for The Coca-Cola Company. We re humbled by the fact that our company and our brands enjoy such a strong connection with people that they want to make visiting us a part of their time with friends and family. Building MARTA in 1978 took the commitment of all of Atlanta s stakeholders. Constructing multiple stations was vital to Downtown. The OMNI became Philips Arena and the Atlanta sports and entertainment businesses took flight. Pictured: Philips Arena, circa CAP manages the Livable Centers Initiative planning program for southern Downtown. CAP also creates Downtown Atlanta Restaurant Week in an effort to introduce metro Atlantans to wonderful dining Downtown. It was also the year that CAP created the Lunch on Broad concert series on Broad Street. ADID s banner program enlivens Downtown streets while CAP starts Downtown Development Day to showcase creative design and development. Imagine Downtown, an eight-month strategic planning process, is launched. Also, Downtown s In Bloom installs flower baskets throughout the district. CAP/ADID launches a new website developed by Turner Broadcasting System. CAP received a $3.6 million Woodruff Foundation Grant and a $500,000 Turner Broadcasting contribution for Imagine Downtown. The Atlanta City Council, Fulton County Commission and Atlanta Board of Education approved creation of the Eastside Tax Allocation District for much of Downtown east of Peachtree Street

9 leverage: Making the most of Atlanta s assets During my tenure as, we wanted Downtown to maximize the long term economic impact of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. Under Pete Correll s Chairmanship, Downtown property owners agreed to assess themselves to pay for the creation of the Ambassador Force and created the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, which has since been expanded to include a larger area and other business benefits. The Urban Land Institute became our partner in convening national urban planners and architects to create a vision for the Centennial Olympic Park Area. Out of that study, housing, retail, hotels, THE World of Coca- Cola and eventually the Georgia Aquarium became a reality. Sam A. Williams, Central Atlanta Progress , Metro Atlanta Chamber Atlanta has tremendous assets that make it a desirable place to live, work, serve and learn. From climate and the airport to sports and entertainment venues to highways and schools, we have a lot to get excited about. Leveraging all that Atlanta has to offer should lead enterprising individuals and businesses to invest where they see opportunities. Expand In 2007, the Georgia State University Foundation purchased the SunTrust building on Woodruff Park; a two-block area that includes the 26-story office tower at 25 Park Place; a three-story bank building; a six-story annex building; a four-story vacant building and an eight-story parking deck. And in 2010, GSU announced that the university would be designing and constructing new buildings for its business and law schools. Share On November 12 th, the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, an outgrowth organization of Central Atlanta Progress, presented a $32,000 donation to the Gateway Center, Downtown Atlanta s most recognized transitional facility. The Gateway Center, a partner of the United Way Commission on Homelessness, operates with the philosophy of eliminating chronic homelessness by helping affected individuals go from the street to homes and regain self-sufficiency. Remodel The Georgia-Pacific Center on Peachtree Street, a Downtown landmark since it was built in 1982, is getting a $5 million makeover of its public spaces. The renovation won t change the sunset red hue of the granite exterior, but it marks the first update of the tower s lobby and other interior spaces. The investment by Georgia-Pacific and MetLife will include new features such as wood paneling and seating areas in the one-block long lobby plus a new main level coffee shop, a CVS pharmacy and MinuteClinic, and renovated elevators and training rooms. AJC.com by Rachel Tobin Build The College Football Hall of Fame will have a 3-D theater, broadcast facility and event space when it opens in Atlanta in Atlanta Hall Management, Inc. (AHM) revealed that the College Football Hall of Fame is expected to be built adjacent to the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) in Downtown Atlanta. AHM and the GWCC Authority are finalizing negotiations to put the $50 million, 50,000-square-foot Hall of Fame on the 2.7-acre Green Parking Lot on Marietta Street. The site is also adjacent to Centennial Olympic Park and the Omni CNN Center. To host world-class business, the city needed world-class facilities developed by public and private funding. From the Georgia World Congress Center to restaurants like TASTE (in 2011) in Georgia-Pacific Center, leveraging our assets has paid off CAP orchestrates an international design competition for a tribute to former Mayor, Congressman and U.N. Ambassador, Andrew Young. The tribute was conceived and funded by Aaron s, Inc. founder, Charlie Loudermilk. The Imagine Downtown vision plan is adopted by City Council. Mayor Franklin asked CAP to staff an appointed 19-member task force to study the feasibility of a Civil and Human Rights Center. The Coca-Cola Company graciously donates a 2.5-acre site for the cause. The Downtown and Midtown Wayfinding Signage System, including over 270 signs, is installed. CAP/ADID creates a weekly lunchtime concert series in Woodruff Park and partners with the City to create the Woodruff Park Reading Room. The Atlanta Police Foundation and the Atlanta Police Department, in partnership with Mayor Shirley Franklin, the Atlanta Security Council, CAP/ADID, and the Midtown Alliance, launches Operation Shield, a for members only program that exercises a fully integrated approach to carrying out our mission of addressing crime prevention and emergency preparedness. Give Change That Makes Sense is the tagline of the three-tiered strategic campaign to address aggressive panhandling throughout the city of Atlanta with a focus in the Downtown area, led by CAP, APD and the Mayor s Office

10 conscientious As we move forward, it is critical that we be prudent in maintaining our infrastructure that is so important to Atlanta s leadership role in our nation and the world. Continuing our tradition of public and private partnership has never been more important to our city than today when transportation, safety and community infrastructures are at the forefront. We have significant infrastructure maintenance and improvement needs, yet we have a condition of area safe. Started by a collaboration of public, private and foundation funding, the project exemplified the type of teamwork needed in today s economic environment. The scope of the project was described in an article on the website and reminded us of the complexities of our Downtown that we experience every day. And it reinforces our need to provide a vibrant, safe and smart home for restaurants, offices, hotels and businesses of all shapes and sizes. Infrastructure investment is critical In the last U.S. census, almost two-thirds (64%) of college-educated 25- to 34-year-olds said they looked for a job after they chose the city where they wanted to live. s for Cities, Carol Coletta, said that increasingly s understand that without a vibrant central city, their region becomes less competitive. Good s care about the fate of their cities, because they have to question whether that is the place where they can attract the talent they need, said Coletta. budget austerity that makes current financing of construction projects difficult or impossible. This is a challenge that will allow us to prove our commitment and vision for the future of Atlanta. We have a history of accomplishing important projects. In 2007, David Wardell, Vice of Operations and Public Safety for the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, helped deploy a citywide monitoring plan that has kept the Safe, clean and vibrant started as a slogan, but has become a mind-set for CAP and ADID members. Launching the Ambassador Force in 1996 was a tangible expression of our values. The Leadership Forum and Urban Lab launched in January 2010 was hosted by CAP and Cousins Properties to address topics related to Downtown Atlanta s future including water, energy, transit and livability. The gathering of government, non-profit and private sector leaders shared progress and charted the next phase of Atlanta s sustainable future. The economic impact as people are moving back into the city to work and live is huge for businesses and institutions that are making the necessary adjustments in their strategies. Through smart development and investments, enterprise leaders will intercept the future and gain sustainable market growth and retain long-term talent Downtown Restaurant Week is expanded to two weeks and over 60,000 diners are served. SKANSKA achieves LEED-certification while renovating the historic Olympia Building (pictured here) as the new home for ADID s Ambassador Force and Clean Team. In collaboration with the 18th annual Congress for the New Urbanism, CAP/ADID launches an initiative to transform the way that the Downtown community aims to create a sustainable, healthy and livable urban core. CAP, along with the City of Atlanta & MARTA, is awarded a $47.6 million TIGER II grant for phase one of the Atlanta Streetcar. Also, over 200 academic, civic, economic and government leaders begin a conversation about the future of our state. The 2010 GeorgiaForward Forum meets at Macon State College to discuss the most pressing challenges facing Georgians today, including the economy, water equity, education and transportation
