City on the Verge: The BeltLine in Atlanta’s Past, Present and Future
A Panel Discussion with Ryan Gravel, Alexander Garvin, and Mark Pendergrast, Moderated by Jim Langford
The Atlanta BeltLine is helping to transform our city. Originating as “belt line” railroads built over a century ago to expand the industrial base of the city, the corridors were largely abandoned by the late 20th century, but are now being repurposed as a planned 22-mile trail and transit loop that will connect new and old parks. Already, the completed trail sections are helping to revitalize neighborhoods, but not without controversy and concern over economic and cultural displacement.
