They need to work on their scale or something, they're showing trees and at least a street right where the NS Railway tracks run.

Now what this development really needs is to be anchored by a commuter rail station. Right in front of that new county library looks like a good straight spot.

Right now there is a graveyard immediately west of City Hall.

What are they going to do with that?

When will GCT run buses to these 'walkable' areas and make them connected by some other way than car?

Yeah, a government-sponsored attempt to build a non-transit connected "walkable" area in the suburbs in an unwalkable area sure sounds a lot like "Olde Towne Morrow".

Good question. That is where Evan Howell is buried.

Actually, GCT Route 10B runs on Buford Hwy which is a very small block south of this development. 10B will take you all the way to Doraville MARTA station. So, it is actually very well connected. But it's OTP, so it's not worthy of your time or research.

Thank you, Ansley. The Howells have really had tremendous influence on Atlanta -- Howell Mill, editor of the Atlanta Constitution, founder of Alston & Bird, Atlanta Memorial Park, mayor of Atlanta, etc.
