The Stone Mountain Community Improvement District (CID) Infrastructure Investment and Economic Development Plan will establish a framework for economic growth and revitalization for the CID area moving forward. Ultimately, the plan will help guide CID investment decisions and support the Stone Mountain CID in developing policies to accommodate emerging industry sectors and to redevelop a strong industrial and freight presence in the area. The study process began in June 2012 with anticipated completion in November 2012.
Study Funding, Requirements, and Coordination
The study is a joint initiative of the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) grant program and the Stone Mountain CID. The Stone Mountain CID was awarded a Plan 2040 LCI Innovation Study grant to develop the plan. As such, the LCI is being carried out in coordination with the ARC and within the standards for LCIs. This is one of the first such grants administered by the ARC to help achieve regional goals for increased economic prosperity and livability.
The planning process is being closely coordinated with the DeKalb County Departments of Economic Development and Planning and Sustainability as well as other strategic public and private partners.

The planning area is consistent with the boundaries of the CID, including East Ponce de Leon Ave to the south and the Gwinnett County line to the north with Mountain Industrial Boulevard and US Highway 78 bisecting the district in the north-south and east-west directions. The planning area includes the newly incorporated portion of the CID, which extends the CID boundary northward to the Gwinnett County line. [Map]
