Want to “get schooled” on the Atlanta Beltline?
Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) is launching Beltline University or “BeltLine U,” a four-month-long civic university that will explore the history, vision, programmatic elements and implementation strategy of the Atlanta BeltLine, according to an announcement Monday.
Selected participants will be notified in January.
Beltline U will consist of eight sessions facilitated by the staff of ABI and its project partners.
“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.
Priority will be given to applicants that are residents to the City of Atlanta and Atlanta Beltline neighborhoods.
Enrollment for the 2019 pilot of Beltline U is limited to 35 people.
Applications will close on December 15, 2018.
A $30 fee payable upon acceptance to the university covers meals and workshop materials.
