My entire family grew up there and then some elders led us all to flee...but it'd love to come back. Several friends are still there from high school in the 70s. Love this revival.
They have fine talent in house to fill that role.
I'd love to throw an issue out there to be potentially solved at the next govathon. Guide me to where to submit it or read on...human services transit is funded, brokered, and provided by 3 state agencies who wish to collaborate and mobility managers across the state are working the people/outreach side of those partnerships. what is really needed is 1 application that all 3 agencies will use so there is coordination of efforts, maximizing efficiencies, stretching of rural/urban transit dollars. DOT, DHS, DCH are the big 3, and the first 2 created 2 routing/trip creation software in silos this year. develop 1 for all 3 please!
living walls as an event was fantastic, showcasing female artists, beautifying public spaces, touring it by bike. all great moments in an ATL event. better still, local neighborhood forum discussing its merits civilly and with a true understanding of the neighborhood because THEY live there. what stinks is local news channels misrepresenting the issue, stirring the pot, and totally missing the beauty of the STORY of the neighborhood coming together, folks visiting the blighted area, art provoking conversation with neighbors. thanks CL and shame on you Ch. 2, Ch. 11 & Huff Post. leave the mural and go visit it.
and boatloads of filming going on down in griffin too:
