CoA faculty, alum on GPB's On the Story about the Beltline

External News Details

Nancy Green Leigh, professor and associate dean of research at Georgia Tech's School of City and Regional Planning, and Ryan Gravel (MCP/MArch '99) are featured in this week's On the Story's episode about the Atlanta Beltline. Dr. Leigh lauded the ambitious goals of the project, saying, "The component of [the Atlanta Beltline] that has come together first has been more the recreational part, but it's far more ambitious than that in terms of creating transit-oriented development in a circle all around the city." However, she sees a need for more attention to issues of equality. "We are now ranked the most unequal city out of the 50 largest US cities in the country. So what I would hope for the Beltline... is that would actually be something that is really at the forefront of the dialogue."
