Richard Milligan (Geosciences, Urban Studies Institute) is working on $1.5 million grant through the Atlanta Regional Commission to conduct a 100-mile Chattahoochee River Greenway study.
The Greenway Study is being managed by a joint Project Management Team (PMT) consisting of the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), the Trust for Public Land, Cobb County, and the City of Atlanta. The project is being designed in collaboration with the Chattahoochee Working Group (CWG).
Milligan has worked on the stakeholder engagement and equity aspects of this effort, helping to organize and conduct dozens of stakeholder and working group meetings, a series of public forums, equity design studio hours, and river rambles that engage the public in design through outings on the river. In May, Milligan co-authored a report with the design team: Chattahoochee River Greenway: Literature Review and Existing Conditions Analysis. More recently, the design team for this project, including Milligan as co-author, has published a “Project Vision and Design Strategies” report, Revealing the Riverlands: Reimagining Metro Atlanta’s Relationship with the Chattahoochee River
