Centennial Group Meetings

Atlanta Beltline Tour - Saturday November 1, 2014

Join the Sierra Club for a bus tour of the Atlanta Beltline project. The Beltline project proposes to create a network of light rail transportation encircling the city of Atlanta. The proposed route will join many of Atlanta’s older neighborhoods and industrial brown sites and act as a catalyst for new, multiuse development. It’s a great opportunity to see all of these old neighborhoods.

The bus follows the route of the beltline and a guide will describe the Beltline concept and history, project planning, and implementation. The tour takes three hours and includes a rest stop in West End and a walking tour of the now defunct Bellwood Quarry in Northwest Atlanta.

The tour departs from the Inman Park MARTA station, located at 1055 Dekalb Avenue, NE, Atlanta, GA 30307. To sign up or for more information, contact Bob Springfield at bob@bobspringfield.com or (770) 365-9440. Limit 15 persons.
