BeltLine Model Mile
October 1, 2007
The Beltline “Model Mile” is coming to Westview and West End!!!! The first mile of the Beltline will cut through Westview and West End – we need your help to make it happen.
On OCTOBER 20TH between the hours of 8:30am and 12:00 noon a massive clean-up will take place in association with WEND, Park Pride, PATH, Trees Atlanta, and the BeltLine Partnership. This hands-on project will remove kudzu, pick up trash, and generally beautify a one-mile stretch on the southwest side of the BeltLine. Volunteer check-in will be at Brown Middle School in the West End – 765 Peeples St, Atlanta, GA 30310. Please pre-register at http://www.treesatlanta.org/volunteer.html.
