Councilman Howard Shook, who represents much of Buckhead, offered the amendment to eliminate that leg from both the text and the accompanying map.
“We know from previous analysis and discussion that a lot more thought needs to be put into this,” said Shook. “The day may come when the public will support sharing precious Peachtree Road capacity with streetcars, but today isn’t it.”
The amendment was approved unanimously.
The revived plan to expand the streetcar line to Buckhead had already been met with resistance from residents and officials.
