Envision Marietta LCI

Envision Marietta Livable Centers Initiative (Completed)


In 2000, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) selected the city of Marietta as one of the first twelve communities to kick-off the now nationally recognized Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) program.

Marietta’s in-town area was designated as a regional activity center, and was awarded federal funds to conduct a master plan for the downtown and in-town areas of Marietta. The plan was completed and adopted by City Council in 2001, and since that date many of the recommended projects and policies have been implemented by the city or are underway.

The master plan has been reviewed and updated twice, once in 2005 and in 2010.
