Saporta Report: City of Atlanta Preparing to Acquire Eastside Trail Land

The City of Atlanta is preparing to acquire additional land to extend the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail, by condemnation if necessary.
The planned acquisition coincides with the plans by the Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. to begin the fairly extensive process of building a concrete mutli-use trail along a 1.5-mile section at the southern end of the existing Eastside Trail. The board that oversees the BeltLine could vote for a contract for this project as early as its meeting scheduled for Dec. 9.
