How a Community Transforms, Part 1

By Kate Sweeney

How did it come to be that a small city a full 30 miles north of the city of Atlanta set the precedent for so-called “urban” design — the sort of pedestrian-friendly planning that’s taking suburban and in-town neighborhoods alike by storm?

In this week’s episode of What’s Next ATL, the podcast from the Atlanta Regional Commission, we hear the story of Woodstock, Georgia. It was long a fairly-typical suburb, characterized by fairly-typical suburban development. Today, its downtown is a regional destination and a model for new urbanism. How did that happen, and what can the rest of us learn from it? Learn more and check out the podcast.
