Town Center LCI
Location: Kennesaw, Georgia
Through this initiative the Town Center Area CID (TCACID) sought community input to develop a shared vision for the future growth of the study area. Kennesaw State University has seen tremendous growth, bringing with it a population of students, faculty and staff looking for housing options, entertainment, recreation, shopping, and access to the local office parks. This LCI study provided market based guidance for future growth and quality of life in Downtown Kennesaw to create vibrant, walkable, mixed use centers that address this growing community’s needs.
An extensive public engagement program was undertaken to involve all stakeholders in the study process. An articulated and community supported vision for the study area was identified, along with various issues, needs and aspirations to be addressed in the master plan. This involved several stakeholder meetings, interviews, visioning sessions and design workshops. This collaborative effort was an integral part of gaining consensus and support of the various stakeholders in the community.
