LCI – what?

LCI stands for “Livable Centers Initiative,” which describes a study funded largely by the Atlanta Regional Commission.  An LCI grant pays for a planning study of a specific, closely-focused area—usually around an existing MARTA station or neighborhood commercial center—with the aim of:

•  Connecting homes, shops and offices;

•  Enhancing streetscaping and sidewalks;

•  Emphasizing the pedestrian;

•  Improving access to transit and other transportation options; and

•  Expanding housing options.
