This grant money should a long way toward revitalizing the westside...

This time Atlanta apparently pulled it off.
A year after falling just short of being awarded the funds for neighborhood revitalization, this time the city is likely to be named a recipient of a $30 million "Choice Neighborhood Initiative" grant, Atlanta Business Chronicle has learned. The funds could spur millions of investment in Atlanta's overlooked West Side neighborhoods, once centers of urban housing and commerce.

Another chance for CoA politicians to plunder public money.

You can start the countdown on the investigation as soon as the money flows

Thanks for the positive encouragement, Atlanta will be sure to use the Braves stadium deal as a blueprint of doing things right.

On the bright side, it will take CoA twice as long to steal it than it would Dekalb.

We should all keep a close eye on how all this money is spent on the Westside. The status quo is not acceptable

Actually, I wonder about the justification for this type of grant at all. Money just going to 5 cities?
And its not like some kind of pilot project where the rest of the country could learn.

They better get Mims Park built. And also fix some southeastern neighborhoods with parks and development, the westside doesn't need all the attention.
