Re: “Residents, preservationists facepalm over Engineer's Bookstore demolition plan

@ atlantan109
I was involved back then because I was cynical about what the State Highway Department was attempting to do.
I can see that a focused response to a question is not one of your strengths.

Came up dry, didn't you?
Don't bother lecturing me about the Stone Mountain Freeway as I was living off Ponce then and was involved with the protests. But that protest was against the State Highway Department (now GDOT), not the City. And it took 20 years to come to a final resolution.

Perhaps so. Can you cite any instance where an Atlanta City neighborhood association has forced Reed to do anything? The Blank neighborhood association doesn't count.

You've contrived a well intended, feel good gesture that is unfortunately defeated before it begins. Reed doesn't respond to efforts like this unless there's something in it for him, and a petition isn't it. Come up with something more effective.
Perhaps you could set up a crowd funding effort to buy the building from the owner.
By the way, the correct spelling is alma mater.

Re: “First Slice 7/24/16: Buckhead condo hi-rise skirts water and sewer bills, resident says

""It says something profound about the state of our nation — and our fair city of Atlanta — that no one trusted actual residents and community members to ask questions. The event was so tightly scripted that no one — including us — was allowed to ask questions."

And it never occurred to VOX they were being used as part of a captive and silent audience so the sponsors could claim transparency? And it never occurred to them to stand up and ask some questions?

"Why does an Atlanta police officer have to travel so far to receive counter-terrorism training? What exactly are they learning? And why Israel?"

Because the Israelis are the best in the world at counter-terrorism, and you had better hope the Atlanta police learned well.

Re: “Fulton officials to mull Central Atlanta Library renovation proposal

So $40-$55 million of taxpayer's money is to be spent to add more space to the already overbuilt Downtown commercial real estate market. In a few years this building will be sold at a loss, like Underground and the Civic Center. But that is not this Library Board's problem - they will just kick the can down the road to their successors.
