Stormwater and Urban Design: Urban Design Strategies for Four Sites on the Atlanta BeltLine
MetadataShow full item record
The Georgia Conservancy’s Blueprints for Successful Communities program, in partnership with graduate students from the College of Architecture at Georgia Institute of Technology, examined four different sites within metro Atlanta, adjacent to the Atlanta BeltLine (Ansley Mall - Peachtree Creek; Bobby Jones Golf Course/Colonial Homes - Peachtree and Clear Creeks; University Avenue - McDaniel Branch; and Boone Boulevard - Proctor Creek) and contrasted their development with existing drainage ordinances. These ordinances focus on controlling peak rates of runoff over more holistic, low impact development policies that could be adopted and implemented with great benefit to the community. Coordinators were: Leah Barnett, Georgia Conservancy; Richard Dagenhart, R.A., Professor, Georgia Tech; Tom Debo, PhD, P.E., Professor, Georgia Tech; Johanna McCrehan, Georgia Conservancy, Katherine Moore, AICP, Georgia Conservancy. Course instructors were Richard Dagenhart and Tom Debo.
