Creating the Southeast’s Premier Walkable Livable Center

The Perimeter Community Improvement Districts (PCIDs), representing both the Central (DeKalb) and Fulton Perimeter CIDs, are self-taxing districts that use additional property taxes to help accelerate needed transportation and infrastructure improvement projects. The PCIDs are leading the charge to implement vital transportation enhancements coupled with land use and zoning strategies that will enhance mobility and improve access to the Perimeter activity center.

The PCIDs then use these funds to leverage additional funding and expedite critical transportation infrastructure and quality of life improvements for businesses, employees, residents and visitors in the Perimeter market. Through partnerships with the cities of Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, and Brookhaven, DeKalb and Fulton Counties and multiple state, local and federal officials and agencies, the PCIDs are amassing a significant track record of improvements that are transforming the Perimeter market.
