City residents are invited to provide input at a meeting this week on an upcoming redevelopment project.

The goal of the Thursday meeting is to compile input that will be used to create a plan to guide expected redevelopment along the Atlantic-Arlington Land Use Corridor.

The redevelopment planning area extends from Grand Avenue to East Raleigh Boulevard, said Brad Kerr, the city's director of engineering.

“We want to hear how area residents and businesses want the corridor to be developed and any concerns they may have about the expected redevelopment,” Kerr said.

WPR Consulting will facilitate a panel discussion with breakout group sessions on topics ranging from what the study is and what it hopes to achieve to the types of development and amenities the community would like incorporated into redevelopment plans to include suggestions on how to preserve quality, inclusive housing and businesses in the area, according to information from city staff.

The Thursday meeting is set for 6-8:30 p.m. at Tri-Faith Ministries at 140 Goldleaf St.
