We’ve received a clarification from the Lindbergh LaVista Corridor Coalition (LLCC) regarding the Feb. 2 meeting on the proposed Clifton Corridor Transit Line. In the original announcement, it was stated that preliminary data gathered on the environmental impact of the light rail line between Lindbergh and Avondale stations would be discussed.  Here’s the text of the clarification:

LLCC sent a notice out earlier this week regarding a scheduled meeting with MARTA for the proposed Clifton Corridor Transit Line. While any meeting that LLCC holds is a public meeting some clarity regarding the purpose of the meeting is, in fact, needed.

LLCC met with MARTA in the summer of 2015 to physically walk the corridor in the Lindridge Martin Manor and Woodland Hills neighborhoods. Out of this meeting several specific questions arose and MARTA agreed to address these and report back to the LLCC community as the EIS process progressed.

The purpose of this follow up meeting is to review that data with the affected LLCC community. This is a community meeting and is not intended to serve as an official MARTA meeting to provide new information for the entire Clifton Corridor project.

LLCC apologizes for this confusion.

The public meeting will still be held on Tuesday, Feb. 2, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Westminster Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, 1438 Sheridan Road NE.

MARTA is exploring running light rail from Lindbergh Station to Avondale Estates, with stops along the way at Cheshire Bridge Road, Sage Hill, Emory/CDC, Suburban Plaza and DeKalb Medical Center.
