Does your community have idle or underused spaces that could be put creatively to public use? Many communities do, and there is relational opportunity in such "wasted" spaces. Atlanta demonstrates what can be done with one such space – the Atlanta BeltLine, including its annual Lantern Parade. "The Atlanta Beltine," says its website, "is the most comprehensive transportation and economic development effort ever undertaken in the City of Atlanta and among the largest, most wide-ranging urban redevelopment programs currently underway in the United States." And it's brimming with community eneregy. 

Liz Lapidus Public Relations in Atlanta clued us in to the BeltLine.
