From the Civil War to the 1996 Olympic boom to the current housing crisis, the city's history is a cycle of rise and fall, ruin and resurgence. In Planning Atlanta, two dozen planning practitioners and thought leaders bring the story to life. They probe the city's economic and environmental growing pains. And they look toward new plans that will shape Atlanta's next incarnation.
