MARTA is signaling it plans to continue its strategy of building developments around transit stations.

There’s already a transit oriented development at the Avondale MARTA station under construction and at the Edgewood/Candler Park station. King Memorial will become a transit oriented development at some point, too. The East Lake MARTA station could also become one.

MARTA is holding more public input meetings about other possible transit oriented developments. The first one will be held on Nov. 8 at the Lou Walker Senior Center from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. A second meeting will be held Nov. 9 at the Community Achievement Center in Decatur from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.

“The purpose of the I-20 East TOD Strategic Plan is to create a blueprint for future TOD at proposed transit station sites along the I-20 East corridor from the Indian Creek MARTA Station to the Mall at Stonecrest,” the announcement from MARTA says. “At both meetings, participants will review exhibits that provide background on the study effort and give feedback on the types of development and amenities they would like to see along the proposed I-20 East transit corridor.”

Here’s the full announcement from MARTA:
