I feel like the suburbs and city have a lot differing issues. Chicago has theirs separate and ATL may need to do this on city data. Thoughts on this?

No, the issues discussed here are too interrelated to have to bounce between forums.

No, there is enough ITP vs OTP infighting already.

That's not a particularly meaningful distinction in the Atlanta area. Some suburbs are more urbanized than many areas within the city proper.

The suburbs are also where you go to find diversity.

No, Atlanta metro is not dense enough to warrant a separate forum for city proper vs. suburbs. You would have minimal activity and overlap in each forum making it frustrating to follow.

Never understood why so many in the suburbs think those of us that live intown live in a "different world" when we are really just a short drive.

One reason to separate the threads. Less fighting.
