All,

Here is a bit of an update from CL from 7/22 on the eminent domain issues in the SW quadrant/along the SW connector trail. Still no maps or a lot of detail, but it does discuss a Beecher Hills property owner's back and forth with the city, and mentions several of his neighbors would have property condemned as well.

At least there is a good bit of wooded area there, and the lot goes back fairly far (just under 20,000 sqft). 3500 square feet out of my yard would be more than half of the open space! But I can see the concerns of having a pathway (that's fairly isolated--we're not talking the NE trail segment here) hidden out of view behind residences.

I believe the holdup with the Beecher property owners was one of the reasons affecting whether or not a future trail phase will come down Centra Villa or Boulevard Lorraine (don't you love our "exotic" 1920s street names!) in order to link Adams Park to the Beltline.

That doesn't make sense - the community declined because of a growing school in the park?

"Expect to see a*23-foot-tall*Corinthian column erected as part of the Art on the Atlanta Beltline*exhibit. The 13-ton edifice is an ode to Atlanta's railroad history — built entirely of rails, spikes, plates, switches and rail anchors."

Me too, and it sounds like it will be. First sentence of the article:
"The Beltline's permanent art collection is about to get a whole lot more "

I'd like to see them either move or get rid of that 54 Columns site on the corner of Glen Iris and Highland. Man, what a bland, soulless eyesore that is. Apologies if you're the one who designed it....but it sucks.

I like this a lot and hope it fares better than some of the other Beltline art.
