I'm pretty sure the residents in those areas would be happy to have a busy commercial airport in their backyard, LOL.

Maybe expanding Briscoe would be the shot in the arm to finally expand 316 into a full-fledged freeway from Lawrenceville to Athens? *looks out the window for flying pigs*
The proposal is pretty limitied. There would be a cap of 30-40 daily jet flights, using the single runway that exists (but expanded slightly). A small terminal with just a handful of gates has been proposed. The County seems VERY interested (as they never met a growth proposal they didn't like), but the wild card is the area residents.

So far, this whole deal seems to be flying under the radar.

Here you go.

I have three observations: #1 Downtown Atl has a horrible street grid(dallas' is horrible too,but a tad bit better).#2by the looks of the photos Dallas ha just as many trees as atl and is just as green. #3 DT Atlanta is way smaller than it looks in pics......but Atlanta is very impressive on all accounts.

Nice pics MikeandIke!

I consider Atlanta to be located in one of the most beautiful natural settings of any city in the U.S.

Love this one.
