Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable
October SART: Finding a Home in Atlanta: History, Development, and the Future of Atlanta's Neighborhoods
Across the city and the region, progress and development are changing the face of our neighborhoods, bringing new opportunity, new amenities and new infrastructure. How do Atlantans hold on to a sense of place and history as the landscape around us changes? How do we balance the benefits of new development with preserving our civic identity? These questions are at the heart of current efforts to redesign the city and grapple with the consequences of progress.
Join us this month to hear from two native Atlantans who have dedicated time and energy to understanding Atlanta and what it means to create a home in an ever-changing urban landscape. Hannah Palmer, author of Flight Path: A Search for Roots Beneath the World’s Busiest Airport, will be joined by Ryan Gravel, creator of the Atlanta BeltLine and author of Where We Want To Live to discuss writing, urban placemaking, holding onto your roots and the future of development on the Southside of Atlanta.
