ULI Atlanta, an Urban Land Institute (ULI) district council, announces Amanda Rhein as the new chair for the Livable Communities Council (LCC), which works to improve metro Atlanta’s quality of life through collaborative efforts in housing, transit and connectivity.
Atlanta Land Trust received a Strong, Prosperous, And Resilient Communities Challenge (SPARCC) grant to quickly gain land along the Lee Street corridor through the creation of a revolving fund. This grant will help ensure that long-time residents don’t get displaced near the Westside BeltLine trail and Fort McPherson.
