"A proposal to spend $3.6 billion to expand the Atlanta Streetcar system to connect it with the Atlanta BeltLine was met with opposition not only by residents, but members of the Atlanta City Council’s Community Development Committee during a June 23 public hearing.

Officials from the Atlanta BeltLine were on hand to discuss the plan to add 50 miles of streetcar lines around the city that connect with MARTA and the 22-mile Atlanta BeltLine loop.

The plan immediately drew criticism from the city council members on the committee because the southwest corner of the city – including the Greenbriar Mall area, Cascade Road and Campbellton Road – was excised from the streetcar expansion.

Rather than sending the proposal on to the full city council, the issue was tabled and additional review and community meetings were called for to address what Councilmember Keisha Lance Bottoms, who represents Southwest Atlanta’s District 11, called the “inequity” of the plan."
