That we have a city hall that gets it when it comes to transit and sustainability

Atlanta might be the capital of what's fast becoming the most backward state in the country, but the city's way ahead of our Georgia brethren when it comes to thinking about transit, sustainability, and making Atlanta a better place to live. In the next four years, city leaders plan to double Atlanta's 60 miles of bike lanes and paths. Civic groups and the local government have teamed up to tame hectic streets to make pedestrians more comfortable. Our mayor talks about "aesthetics" and wants the city to look and act world-class. There's even been mumblings about a network of urban farms, with the planned garden across the street from City Hall serving as a demo space. Now, it's not perfect. The downtown streetcar route has skimped on bike lanes. And not all the projects are guaranteed to become reality. But if we can think it, it can happen. And that's what people on Trinity Avenue are doing.
