About the CID

The South Fulton Community Improvement District (CID) was formed in 1999 by business leaders interested in improving freight access to warehousing, manufacturing and industrial sites along Oakley Industrial Boulevard and connectivity to I-85. Soon after its formation, the South Fulton CID began work on the Oakley Industrial Bridge—a bridge to connect Oakley Industrial Boulevard over the CSX Railroad Tracks. The project was eventually completed in 1996, and the original plan expanded to include a connected, improved roadway system throughout the CID area for all types of traffic.

The CID Strategy

The CID leverages money collected by funding studies and preliminary engineering. The CID does not replace city and county infrastructure improvement programs, but supplements them by providing a means to advance projects within the area. When construction money becomes available from the state or local jurisdictions, the CID has projects ready to go. The projects created by this investment are chosen, designed and constructed with the business community in mind, making the area more accessible and more appealing for businesses, employees, residents and consumers.
