The city of Kennesaw is receiving an $80,000 grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Livable Centers Initiative for supplemental studies to help implement their LCI through additional studies and zoning changes.

ARC awarded $800,000 in its latest round of grants to 11 metro Atlanta communities, including Kennesaw. The LCI grants will help these communities create new plans for what it considers “quality growth” and help develop policies that “support more vibrant, connected communities.” Once their studies and plans are complete, these communities will be eligible for additional LCI grants for transportation projects needed to implement their plans.

The LCI program is funded with federal transportation dollars. The grants fund 80 percent of the study, with the recipient making a 20 percent match. So altogether, there will be a $1 million LCI investment in these 11 communities, $800,000 from the LCI program and $200,000 in local match.
