Yes, but that's pretty much normal for most big cities in the East North or South.

The key to remember though is that this is mainly due to the smaller defined area of inner ring suburbs as compared to the central city.

For instance, the best example of this is New York City and Hudson county, NJ just over the river. Every city in Hudson county has a higher population density than New York City proper and several have population densities higher than that of Manhattan than itself.

So take it with a grain of salt. It's easy to have a high population density in one our two square miles, but much harder to sustain that over several dozen.

One of the interesting, but also future problem areas for Atlanta is most what we call intown areas are actually suburbs that were built for a much smaller city.

Ansley Park and Capital View Manor were some of the first car suburbs built. Back then most things were downtown and Peachtree through midtown was more like a suburban retail center.

Magnuson set a July 2012 deadline for Georgia, Alabama and Florida to work out a resolution. ...

But Judge Stanley Marcus of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday said he believed that the imposition of such a deadline constitutes an injunction. If that were the case, Magnuson should have weighed the potential harms and equities of such a result, Marcus said.

He then looked up to Parker Thompson, who was arguing the case on behalf of Florida, and asked, "You would have no problem with us vacating that?"

Parker, after looking back to lawyers from Alabama, then told Marcus he would not oppose it.

Both Mills and Marcus pressed Michael Gray, a lawyer representing the corps, to give the court an idea of how long it will take the corps to issue a final decision.

Gray estimated it would take 24 to 30 months.
That's excellent news! If the 2012 deadline gets thrown out and the corps are able to do their own evaluation, we are in a much better position for negotiating about long-term solutions. That's not to say the court won't ultimately rule the same way (that we need to stop using Lake Lanier unless we reach a deal), but it seems like the timeframe for neogitating could be eased significantly.
