Bill Passed in House to Accelerate Beltline Development


A bill that could allow development along Atlanta’s beltline to move forward at a quicker pace passed through Georgia’s House of Representatives with almost no contest this week; it has been passed along to the state Senate for approval. House Bill 960 expands the laws that govern redevelopment in urban areas so that private entities could help finance and construct transit-oriented projects. Representative Jay Roberts said that this bill would allow them to “streamline the process to get things done inside the Beltline a lot faster.” This is great news for the areas surrounding the 22-mile corridor, as walkability has become a major deciding factor for Millennials and other who are leading to push from the suburbs back to the city.
