Master Plan

The CID, in coordination with its consultant team of Jacobs Engineering and Bleakly Advisory Group, led the Master Planning process in close collaboration with a variety of partners. Funding for the study was provided by the Atlanta Regional Commission with matching funds from the CID.

Key steps in the planning process included:
1. Analysis of existing conditions – including freight and multimodal transportation conditions, land use patterns and policy, urban design, and market conditions
2. Stakeholder engagement
3. Development of the I-20 Gateway Concept
4. Development of the final report

The planning team interviewed over 30 area stakeholders, led a Steering Committee of over 50 local, regional, and state partners, and carried out two public meetings to develop the plan. Data gathering included a review of recent planning efforts, coordination with key partners and ongoing initiatives, analysis of existing data and policies, and multiple visits to the FIB corridor to better understand the area’s true needs.
