The Gateway Marietta CID was founded in June of 2014, with the mission to help establish the area as a premier business center in Metro Atlanta. The CID is conveniently located right off I-75 only a few miles north of I-285, within the City of Marietta. The Gateway Marietta CID is currently focusing on improving the area through public safety, landscaping, and infrastructure improvements.
What is a CID?
A Community Improvement District is a self-taxing district established by property owners for purposes of improving local infrastructure & public safety. In addition to infrastructure and public safety, CIDs also provide a unified voice for an area giving property owners more control. CIDs are managed by a seven person Board of Directors who are voted on by other property owners.
There are currently 20 CIDs in the Metro-Atlanta area. You can find links to all of them here.
The Gateway Marietta CID is located right off I-75 at the Delk Road and South Marietta Parkway Interchanges, 5 minutes north of I-285.

NORTHWEST CORRIDOR INVESTMENT
Over the next few years there will be billions of dollars invested along I-75 northwest of Atlanta.
The Northwest Expressway, the two new HOT lanes being added to the west side of I-75, will relieve traffic going into and out of Atlanta during rush hours and provide easy access into the CID.
SunTrust Park, only a few miles south of the CID, will not only be home the Braves, but also world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment.
