Atlanta! Fast-growing Southern city with a visionary mayor. We saw the Atlanta BeltLine, a project that is transforming the definition of beltways. Today, it is a bike/ped trail following alongside the city's inner loop. But they're preserving right of way for a parallel streetcar extension. It's already attracting $1B in private investment & bringing new residents into downtown Atlanta. What is also really neat is how they are extending the BeltLine into historically underserved areas & improving quality of life.
