For the past year they have been working on area tests for Lawrenceville and Winder Airports. Lawrenceville proved dead due to location and density. Winder/Barrow is looking positive. It will be a few years out mostly due to zoning and dollars, big dollars.

Now of course if Winder / Barrow fails the next approved location is JohnAtl's back yard

Interesting read. As a new person in this city, Prior to moving here when someone mentions ATL I always think of Coke. I never knew there was a civil war history in Atlanta at all. Kinda like when I hear St. Louis, I think of Budweiser. Also the city was built around rail....are so I have read. Since being here Coca Cola does seem like a big part of ATL but I didn't see it mentioned. Also I don't find any "Atlanta Progess" sites to blog on, Some where you can discuss new developments, history & impact based on Atlanta. I wish there was a site like that.

I think the Atlanta Main Library should be remodeled. It seemed a lil out dated to me.
Are people waiting on the Ted Turner dude to die? It seems like he did a lot for the Atlanta area as well, yet he has no monument or anything. So I guess dude has to die first. I never see the city flag around. Some people don't even know what it looks like and have lived here for years. They should fly the local flag with all the others.

Thats all I got for now. It sometimes seems like Atlanta is bored with itself lately. Maybe its the cold weather.

LOL, Georgia!

Not too likely though. I live under the approach to PDK, and some of my neighbors already foam at the mouth every time a plane flies over. There would probably be rioting in the streets around here if there was ever a proposal for commercial flights at Peachtree DeKalb!

Why are you dealing with traffic woes? Fix it! If it's so bad that you can.not.deal....fix it. Move closer to your job; live in an area where traffic isn't so heavy; schedule your times when traffic is lightest; etc. etc. etc. There are many solutions to that situation.

Hey Deacon..... listen up. I work somewhere different every week (for the entire week) and usually just commute on Monday mornings and Friday afternoons. I have figured out many ways around it, like staying in a hotel across town all week. And I do live in an outlying community.

The thread asks what you'd like to see in Atlanta. I answered.

I was trying to help you with some options...you said you can't take it anymore, and that sound pretty serious. There are options - ones that aren't all that difficult. It sounds like you've been doing some things to help you cope...and you still can't take it only commuting Monday and Friday? That sounds a little overdramatic...

From the sound of it, it's your job that's the problem, not Atlanta.
