Project Description

A Commitment to Our Parks

Mary Norwood says…

  • Everyone in Atlanta should have access to parks, playgrounds, forests, trails, community gardens and other types of greenspace.
  • Atlanta should be thoughtful when considering development proposals that reduce greenspace and request that developers do as much as possible to preserve or conserve land.

  • Supports the amendment to the city tree ordinance to allow for tree removal recompense to go towards parkland and forest preservation.

  • The City Arborist’s staff will be increased to provide for timely and strict code enforcement of tree protection ordinances and fines.

  • Renovate our city park recreation centers, working creatively with community partners such as the APS to maximize each center’s connection to the community it serves.

  • Work with nonprofit parks organizations, parks and recreation officials and the police department to improve and maintain safe city parks in all of Atlanta’s neighborhoods.

  • Support organizations, such as Trees Atlanta, which benefit small green spaces throughout the city and the BeltLine.

  • Move forward with implementation of the Westside Park Master Plan.
