Planning > “the project has changed Gravel’s life.”

(press.)  Nice profile in Planning, the journal of the American Planning Association, which held its 2014 national conference in Atlanta in April 2014. Link: “At the beginning” by Ben Smith > article runs after the headline story, “Emerald Necklace, Southern Style” by Alexander Garvin.

Excerpt: “Mass-mailing a graduate student thesis to a bunch of elected officials isn’t the best way to sell a plan for reinventing a city. But when the history of Atlanta’s BeltLine gets written, sometime after the project’s 2030 completion, that’s exactly how the story will begin.”
