 This Week's Tour...

...met at 9:00AM Saturday on the Beltline Eastside Trail near Parish (R.I.P...soon to reopen as "Painted Park"!). We walked for 1 1/2 hours, covering 1 mile of the Beltline, ending at Ponce City Market.

"The Tourists"...
What a great group! Long time Atlanta resident and recent landscape architecture grad!

Thanks for a great tour!

Tree of the week... the Chinese Fringe Tree...planted along the section of the Beltline as a display of the theme "Peace", so chosen as it roughly connects the King Center/Auburn Ave and the Carter Center, both places where Nobel Peace Prizes can be viewed (making Atlanta the only city in the world where 2 Nobel Peace Prizes are on permanent display!)

"Stump" of the week...
...featuring a question raised during the tour that Jeff couldn't answer.

Q: How does this Tax Allocation District (TAD) that funds the Beltline work?

A: The original TAD funding the Atlanta Beltline was for 25 years and is set to run-out in 2030. Lots more details and description (including of the SSD created for additional funding) found here.
