Fixing southern sprawl

This video is part of an award-winning, six-part series called American Makeover and features many of the local thinkers, developers, and researchers who participated in this month’s Congress for New Urbanism’s conference in Atlanta. One of the participants was David Byrne, who was interviewed by Creative Loafing about bicycles, cities, and Atlanta.

Hmm, I was hoping that there would be more to the story here than just a feature on one in-fill neighborhood. What about the work on the BeltLine? or other neighborhoods that are making walking/biking a priority? Atlanta needs some love!
