“The Atlanta Beltline started as a grassroots movement, and community involvement is what keeps it moving forward,” Clyde Higgs, interim President and CEO of ABI, said in the announcement.

“Beltline U will equip its participants with the tools and deep knowledge to help shape the evolution of the project’s future.”

Participation is open to anyone passionate about the Atlanta Beltline who would like to learn more about the project and take an active role in its evolution.
