Downtown Atlanta continues to face crime, substandard housing, poverty, and foreclosures. Due to the economic downturn individuals, families, schools, and neighborhoods throughout metro Atlanta have suffered. Homeless men and women flood the streets in search of food, water, and shelter. While residential neighborhoods are lined with dilapidated housing, fragmentary developments, and hazardous recreational areas.
As a result of gentrification sectors of Atlanta have experienced a change in affluence and resources, creating the image of a flourishing metro Atlanta community. However, an overall scope of metro Atlanta neighborhoods would reveal in different image, one that the depicts neighborhoods struggling with the common problems endemic to marginalized communities. The goal therefore is to provide constructive recreational environments for all communities, encourage and accommodate a wide range of activities and interest, and inspire growth and opportunity for underserved neighborhoods struggling to survive.
Metro Atlanta's proximity to several bordering neighborhoods offers opportunity for strong community partnerships, revitalization, support, and progression.
