ATLANTA BELTLINE CITYWIDE CONVERSATION ON ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE
Public is Invited to Participate on Saturday, March 10, 2012
On Saturday, March 10, the Atlanta BeltLine invites the public to an educational workshop on Environmental Justice at Atlanta City Hall. As part of its mission to build a sustainable redevelopment and mobility project that benefits all communities, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. is developing an Environmental Justice Policy.
Historically, industry and other developments with onerous land uses have disproportionately affected lower income and minority communities. The Atlanta BeltLine is building parks, trails and transit, and other new public infrastructure that benefits public health and safety. Much of this development will include the remediation of roughly 1,000 acres of brownfields, making it one of the largest brownfield remediation efforts in the country. Implementing an Environmental Justice Policy for the Atlanta BeltLine will ensure that the public is educated and informed about federally regulated environmental challenges ABI discovers over the life of the project.
The public is invited to attend and participate in this educational workshop which will include an overview of ABI’s draft policy; provide details on remediation efforts to date; an interactive learning activity on Environmental Justice; a question and answer session.
