Green Space for Blighted ATL 'Hoods?

Creative Loafing continues to bring the journalistic heat with an excellent piece on the ongoing effort to revitalize two historic but downtrodden West Side neighborhoods. The latest plans involve converting blight into a tapestry of parks and restored natural environments. Programs to aid the residents of Vine City and English Avenue and help them restore their neighborhoods to their former vitality has attracted support from British royalty and the foundations of Atlanta corporate titans. But the ravages of the recession combined with the enormity of the task have stifled momentum; the realization of these plans for parks could be a game-changer. [Creative Loafing]
