Proctor Creek Greenway opens, an amenity with a little anxiety

Official Atlanta got out the big blue scissors on Monday morning, this time to cut the ribbon on some three new miles of multiuse trail along Proctor Creek.

Purpose Built adds Atlanta’s Grove Park to its national network

Atlanta-based Purpose Built Communities will partner with a new Grove Park neighborhood organization to revive a community in the same way the founders of the nonprofit have revitalized East Lake and areas around the country.

The Grove Park Foundation, a newly-formed nonprofit that grew out of the Emerald Corridor Foundation, joins the East Lake Foundation as the second Atlanta-based member of the Purpose Built Communities Network.
