Atlanta City Planning, 1950-2000

I found an article in the Chicago Tribune which analyzes the impact of the 1996 Olympic Games on the city of Atlanta. For the most part, the games brought a new breath of life into the city as well as reviving the sluggish downtown area. However, some of the economic promise that the games might have brought seem not to be too glorious. yet some retain hope. As one person interviewed in the article states, "The Olympics is about economic development of cities’ institutions. It’s a corporate event, not a common-person event.”
