This evening Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms addressed a standing room only crowd as she and other local leaders gave the Quarterly Update on the ATL Belt Line.
Some estimates put the number of attendees at the Friendship Baptist Church at well over 500.
Members of the audience were allowed to ask questions. Many of which were tough, passionate and respectful. Questions included increasing number of affordable housing units, increasing access for seniors, actually using input from community engagement sessions, as well as equity issues and quality of the westside trails as compared to the east side trails.
The panel facilitator was excellent!! He also asked tough questions of the panel that included City Department heads and Odetta from the Transformation Alliance, a local non profit.
