Beltline cleanup on Nov. 8

" width=

So you'd like there to be more public transit in Atlanta, want to see more smart-growth development, but you still don't know exactly what the Beltline is all about. The Beltline Partnership, the 22-mile project's fundraising arm, operates twice-a-week tours of the proposed loop of transit, trails, parks and development, so that's one way.

Another way is to help clean the project up. Last year, volunteers cleaned up the Beltline's southwest portion, and on Nov. 8, they plan to do the same in the northeast quadrant.

Here are the details:

Last week, TruGreen LandCare, lawn and landscape professionals, donated their time and expertise to prepare the area for volunteers by accomplishing some of the heavy lifting.

On Saturday November 8, Atlanta BeltLine Inc., Ponce Park, the Historic Fourth Ward Park Conservancy, City of Atlanta, Park Pride, Trees Atlanta, Atlanta Community ToolBank and PATH are orchestrating the northeast corridor BeltLine clean-up. This is necessary to achieve the clean-up’s goal of taking a first step in creating a useable connection between Piedmont Park and Freedom Park. See images below.

Volunteers will pick up litter and remove kudzu from trees along the 1.5 mile stretch. You can register as a volunteer for the clean-up at www.keepatlantabeautiful.org.
