Adair Park featured in Beltline News Story

The west side trail of the Atlanta Beltline is getting underway soon! One of our own neighbors, Michelle Rushing, was featured along with Adair Park in this WSBTV recent news story. Michelle is actually a 10+ year resident of Adair Park. A little disconcerting that the money goes away if they have not broken ground by the fall, but from neighborhood meetings that seems easily attainable. Watch the video for more information.
