Join us for a discussion on transforming Atlanta into a new urban environment with parks and green space, the BeltLine, and alternative transportation options--i.e., plains, trains, non-autos. Three speakers will emphasize the research, public efforts, and coalitions supporting change to make Atlanta greener, healthier, and more livable. We'll discuss the emerging BeltLine project and other efforts to give Atlantans options for active living, outside of their cars and in the parks and streets of this booming city.

This event is co-sponsored by the School of Public Policy at Georgia Tech. The event is free and the public as space permits. Please register here: http://alumniandfriends.uchicago.edu/site/apps/nlnet/content2.aspx?c=mjJXJ7MLIsE&b=4725657&ct=9135603.
