Meeting to highlight Atlantic-Arlington Corridor
Posted on 12/05/2018

Residents will soon have the opportunity to give their input on an upcoming redevelopment project.

A meeting will be held from 6-8:30 p.m. on Dec. 13 at Tri-Faith Ministries, 140 Goldleaf St., regarding the Atlantic-Arlington Land Use Corridor Study.

The goal of the meeting is to compile input that will be used to create a plan to guide expected redevelopment along the corridor.

WPR Consulting, LLC will facilitate a panel discussion, and there will be breakout group sessions with topics ranging from what the study is and what it hopes to achieve, to the types of development and amenities the community would like incorporated into redevelopment plans, and suggestions on how to preserve quality, inclusive housing and businesses in the area.

“We want to hear how area residents and businesses want the corridor to be developed and any concerns they may have about the expected redevelopment,” Director of Engineering Brad Kerr said.

The Atlantic-Arlington corridor extends from Grand Avenue to East Raleigh Boulevard. Visit https://www.rockymountnc.gov/engineering for a map of the corridor study area. Call 252-972-1121 for more information on the meeting.
