1) "Although my neighborhood is entirely enchanting with the tall trees, off-street parking for most houses, and the general sense of safety (and the farmers market when it's that season), the tourists are the worst, and, unfortunately, I don't possess the audacity to ask the elephants to leave.

1) "There are vacant lots that have been vacant for years because the developers went bankrupt and stuff. There's things they could do to improve some of those properties, whether it's putting in potted plants or whatever.

1) "Stone Mountain needs more hip and funky shops and a variety of restaurants, eateries and a beer pub.

It sucks that the only safe crossings are at the Starbucks and Clothing Warehouse, and think, it could be something that could have a Living Walls mural painted on it." — Spencer Ussery,... | more...
