Central Atlanta Progress is hosting a public information meeting Wednesday to discuss the Multi-Modal Passenger Terminal project planned for (eventual) construction in the downtown “gulch.”

“The project team will introduce the project and provide background on planning efforts surrounding the MMPT, as well as why this process is different,” CAP said in an email. Planned topics of discussion are “the national trend of transit-oriented development (TOD), the role of public/private partnerships, the relationship of the MMPT to the City of Atlanta and the State, and how this project can help build a stronger Downtown.”

The meeting is scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Georgia Pacific building at 133 Peachtree Street. Georgia Pacific is right next door to the Peachtree Center MARTA station and is also served by the route 110 bus.
