The Atlanta Streetcar and Revitalization of Sweet Auburn’s “Main Street”

After six years of planning and two years of construction, the Atlanta Streetcar opened to passenger service and welcomed thousands of expectant riders on December 30. A key goal of the Atlanta Streetcar is to attract investment to and revitalize the neighborhoods along the streetcar route -- particularly the neighborhood of Sweet Auburn, one of the most significant historically African-American commercial areas in the South. Learn how Sweet Auburn Works, a non-profit that utilizes the Main Street Approach, will help guide the redevelopment to ensure a dynamic, revitalized community that is firmly rooted in the historic Sweet Auburn district experience while also moving forward into the 21st century.
