In my opinion, it already is. But it's only going to get better.

Does anyone have any more recent info about Mims Park. I haven't heard anything since it was approved.

Really looking forward to work on the westside portion. I think it is going to be interesting over there. I am curious to see how much, if any, immediate investment / redevelopment occurs once the work starts. I am inclined to think that if they don't go full bore on the westside trail and attempt to slowly complete small projects, they trail will be much less of a short term success. I think they need to go all "shock and awe" in that part of town to really spur redevelopment.

Does anybody know if the city/beltline is working towards gaining the ROW for the southeast portion of the beltline? I have heard various updates about every other section in creative loafing except for that one. Whenever I ask a beltline rep at festivals, they have no answer for the southeast quadrant. Anybody have any insight that I can't locate? If Grant Park and Zoo Atlanta were linked to the beltline sooner, it would provide families better access and a healthier way to get to the zoo, as well as further connecting the most urban and walkable parts of Atlanta.

Weird. I and a few others asked the same thing at some Beltline meetings, as I live on the westside. We were met with general groans and the feeling that it would be several (5-10) years before they even thought about starting.

One enthusiastic individual said the westside was the next focus after the completion of the Eastside Trail.
The SE part is still a semi-active railroad.

I can't answer, but this might be of interest -

From the Cabbagetown Yahoo Group:

Hello everyone,
Per our normal schedule the HP/Land Use committee meeting will be held at
7pm on Monday, February 4th at the Community Center (177 Estoria Street). This month we will be
hosting representatives from Atlanta Beltline Inc to discuss plans for the
SE portion of the Beltline which includes Cabbagetown.

As always, meetings are open.
