@Piedmont Heights Business Alliance Member Discovery Experience - April 5th
16 things to do this weekend in Atlanta.
Atlanta City Councilmembers attended a press conference this afternoon where Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced that the City of Atlanta and the Atlanta BeltL...ine have concluded the purchase of land needed to close the loop on the BeltLine's Southside trail.
The 4.5 mile stretch of land spans the districts of Atlanta City Council Member Carla Smith, Atlanta City Councilmember Joyce M. Sheperd and Natalyn Mosby Archibong. It will connect the Westside Trail at University Avenue to the Eastside Trail at Glenwood Avenue, joining five schools, 18 neighborhoods and three parks.
Also joining Mayor Bottoms was Brian McGowan, BeltLine
president and CEO, and Craig Camuso, CSX Transportation’s regional vice president of state government affairs.
CSX has long owned the corridor in question and put it out of service for trains several years ago.
The Atlanta BeltLine is the most comprehensive revitalization effort ever undertaken in the City of Atlanta and among the largest, most wide-ranging urban redevelopment and mobility projects currently underway in the United States. This sustainable project is providing a network of public parks, multi-use trails and housing.
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms will announce on Thursday at a 2 p.m. press conference that the City of Atlanta and Atlanta BeltLine have concluded the largest single purchase of land needed to close the loop on the BeltLine’s Southside Trail.
