Murphy Crossing is a 20+ acre site at the intersection of Sylvan and Murphy streets in Southwest Atlanta, currently owned by the City of Atlanta and controlled by the Atlanta BeltLine, Inc (ABI). ABI will soon issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) to redevelop this site.
In response, the Murphy Crossing Coalition (MCC), a group of local neighborhood associations and NPUs, worked hard to ensure that community interests are heard and represented in the RFP. MCC released a Community Survey in late August which gathered over a thousand responses over the course of two months and built a report based on the findings from the survey.
That report, "Murphy Crossroads: A Community Responds to Redevelopment" has now been released to the public and can be obtained at https://murphycoalition.com/s/MCC-Report-11-Nov-final.pdf. It contains background information, survey results, and a host of recommendations that came from the community. These recommendations have been heard by ABI and are helping to shape the RFP.
ABI's next Murphy Crossing meeting is scheduled to be held tomorrow, November 16. To register to attend, go to https://beltline.org/the-project/economic-development-commercial-real-estate/murphy-crossing/#public-input and click on 'Virtual Meeting'.
