Two years and $100,000 from now, Georgia State’s School of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will know a lot more about how Atlanta’s favorite project is shaping the city. The two organizations are building a team of more than 20 specialists on topics like public health, air quality, and the built environment, and that dream team will proceed to interview more than 400 BeltLine area residents to learn more about everything from physical activity levels to changes in crime. Paul Morris, president and chief executive officer of Atlanta BeltLine Inc., says, “We have the opportunity, and the obligation, to positively impact each unique neighborhood around the Atlanta BeltLine. Our job is to create a healthy, vibrant environment for everyone by building the foundations to work, learn, play, and shop near where they live.”
