Keen understanding of freight movement, timing, and the relationship to general district traffic

Identification of infrastructure needs and opportunities

Mobility improvements for freight and general users


Opportunity to create a positive regional impact on freight movement


Funding awarded by Atlanta Regional Commission through Freight Cluster Plan Program

Project Overview

Funded by a grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Freight Cluster Plan Program, the Town Center Community has initiated a plan to better understand freight-related needs, issues, challenges and growth opportunities in the district area. Through data collection and analysis, stakeholder and public outreach, and best practice research, the plan will work to identify strategies and projects that improve freight access and mobility supporting future growth and continued success within the TCCID area.


While locally focused, the Freight Cluster Plan highlights the Town Center community’s unique character and regional significance. As one of the last concentrated, economic centers in north Georgia before heading out of state, Town Center serves as a gateway for commuters, freight operations, and travelers to and from Metro Atlanta via I-75 and I-575. It is also home to a complex mix of retail, residential, university services, manufacturing, warehousing, and industrial uses.
