Well thats a far cry from years ago you could not poossible get any support for wanting to be apart of the city.
Most likely group that does not want in are older residents who have lived in the area many years when Atlanta politics was very undesireable.

The original idea of the BeltLine was to be a transportation corridor, if you read Ryan Gravel's thesis.

Your link didn't work for me.

The Beltline until about a month before the deadline for the TSPLOST projects was simply a circular route. They apparently realized almost no one wanted to go around in a circle and have to transfer to get places they really needed to go and so they added the spurs into downtown to get ridership up to a tolerable level.

I don't know what his thesis said, but the Beltline website was showing just a circle. His thesis was the starting point, but has long since become irrelevant. Others are driving it now.

The Atlanta BeltLine and Atlanta Streetcar are now one. Once streetcars were decided as the preferred technology, crosstown links were planned, including the downtown loop.

Sure it does. From maintenance and policing of the roads affected to the disruption in traffic in productivity. Private will not cover all the tangent costs.
