JMP Family Partnership Property
T
he JMP Family Partnership property acquisition is located within a series of recently acquired parcels that will connect to form a continuous greenway corridor along Sweetwater Creek. Although this acquisition is comprised of only slightly less than one acre of property, the JMP parcel is entirely comprised of floodplain. The 100-year floodplain is defined as the area that has a one percent chance of flooding in any given year. Millions of dollars in structural damages can result if property is developed within the floodplain. The permanent protection of this greenway property will ensure that development does not occur inside the 100-year floodplain. Whether it provides connectivity, improved wildlife habitat or floodplain protection, every greenway property has its own unique features to contribute to the City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Project.
