City of Stone Mountain Gets $64,000 LCI Grant

Grant to be used for a planning study.

The City of Stone Mountain has received a $64,000 grant through the Atlanta Regional Commission's Livable Centers Initiative.

The money will be used for a study to look at how to develop the city, said city manager Barry Amos.

The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), says through its Livable Centers Initiative (LCI), it has awarded 10 local communities a total of $796,000 in planning grants, which are meant to help "local governments and communities "create new quality growth plans that can seed new ideas for livability or help implement such community-developed visions."

The City of Stone Mountain has had an LCI plan in place for over a decade…unfortunately, the only significant piece ever implemented was a $25,000 stockade that local leaders called a dog park that was never maintained andis now closed due to storm runoff piped into it by public works. Good work there guys! Wonder what great new ideas will stem from this grant that will go unimplemented by this inept, backwards, "funny farm" of a town.

Responding to Funny Farm's comment: Excellent point (even though I like the dog park)! Not only did the City spend the $20,000 to $25,000 on the dog park that they have "temporarily closed," they now say that they are looking for another location for a dog park. More money down the drain!
