Rebuilding an Atlanta Park
Larry Copland of USA Today looks at NRPA's plans to revitalize Selena S. Butler Park in Atlanta, which had fallen into disuse after a local housing project was demolished:
"In 2008, a tornado further devastated the park. It was closed and soon became a hangout for prostitutes and drug users.
Soon, though, Butler Park may shine again."
The NRPA is putting $1.5m into the park, which is now surrounded by new housing but is still suffering from neglect.
