Findley Plaza Update
The Little 5 Points Community Improvement District (L5PCID) submitted a Livable Center Initiative (LCI) supplemental grant application with Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) on Friday, March 29, 2019.
The supplemental grant was for The Little Five Points Smart Mobility Improvement Project with a Study Project Cost of $315,000.
The final design plans for the Findley Plaza redesign passed the Urban Design Commission on March 14th. Now, the designs go into the City of Atlanta’s procurement process where contractors will bid for the project. We hope the process will yield a contractor to start in June.

A letter from the Little 5 Points Community Improvement District board chair, Anna Foote:
Little 5 Points is on the cusp of some exciting changes, and I want to make sure you are the first to know. Over the past several years, your CID Board has volunteered thousands of hours of their personal time to lead vital projects and lay the foundation for the improvements coming in L5P. So much has been bubbling below the surface, and now, in a very short period, this dedication will help deliver the greatest transformation L5P has seen in decades!
