A series of events are planned during the month of October for those who want to be involved in the redevelopment of the Brookhaven-Oglethorpe MARTA station.

A collaborative brainstorming and planning session known as a “charrette,” and several background sessions surrounding the proposed transit-oriented development at the station are being hosted by the city of Brookhaven, Southface, the Atlanta Regional Commission, MARTA and the National/Atlanta Board of Realtors.

The Atlanta Regional Commission has been working to promote transit-oriented development at MARTA stations. The Brookhaven-Oglethorpe MARTA station has been identified as a strong candidate for a mixed-use, pedestrian development due to its location in a thriving city with a need for more office and retail space.

A Livable Centers Initiative study by the Atlanta Regional Commission identified the MARTA station as a centerpiece for a Brookhaven town center that would include a mix of office, retail and public spaces.

All sessions will be held at Oglethorpe Presbyterian Church, 3016 Lanier Drive, unless otherwise noted.

Background sessions:

6:30-8:30 p.m. Oct. 7 – Understanding the Brookhaven-Peachtree Overlay and LCI study.

6:30-8:30 p.m. Oct. 14 – Transportation Planning: Putting the Pieces Together for a Multi-Modal Framework.

6:30-8:30 p.m. Oct. 17 at Mellow Mushroom Brookhaven – Workforce Housing: Good for the Community and Those Who Serve It.

Oct. 20-24 – Charrette
