South Atlanta Pushes for Community Improvement District

Hoping to strengthen the economic vitality of the Camp Creek corridor, several leaders from Southwest Atlanta, as well as East Point, College Park and Fulton County, want to create a community improvement district. The aim is to lure more retail and the logistics-related businesses, according to a recent report in the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Such entities, or CIDs as they're called, are created when businesses agree to raise money by taxing themselves, with those monies going toward improving infrastructure and boosting economic development.
