The Chattahoochee River holds a special place in our region, even if the closest some of us get to this vital natural resource is a fleeting glance from a highway bridge.
While parts of the river are lined with parks and paths, access remains limited in many areas. That’s why a regional effort called the Chattahoochee RiverLands Greenway Study launched last October.
The study is looking at a 100-mile stretch of the river, from Buford Dam on the north to Chattahoochee Bend State Park on the south and aims to reimagine the region’s relationship to the river and create a vision for the future. Read more about the study.
After months of research and analysis, the study team is ready for the next big phase of the project: to hear from you. Two open-house-style public forums will showcase informational stations featuring different aspects of the plan such as the design and engagement process, narratives about the history and role of the Chattahoochee River, partners involved in the Chattahoochee Working Group, an interactive map and more. Attendees will be encouraged to draw and comment on the map, share information about their favorite parts of the river and suggest opportunities for improvement.
We hope you will join us at one of these two public forums; registration is encouraged.
