First Slice 1-22-16: Atlanta Police body cam program put on hold
Don’t expect to see body cams on officers anytime in the foreseeable future.
Ryan Gravel, the renowned urban planner and mastermind of the Atlanta Beltline, has joined Mayor Kasim Reed’s administration to lead the Atlanta City Design Project. According to the press release, the project “will envision what Atlanta should look like decades from now, as well as guide future decisions on the growth and development of the city.”
Speaking of development, Invest Atlanta has agreed to drop $10 million to go toward a new mixed-use project across from City Hall. The money will help finance a building the city purchased last month and has planned to convert to apartments (including some affordable housing units), retail, and parking.
