Gabrielson Property
T
he Gabrielson property acquisition will protect approximately 116 feet of Peachtree Creek. Located in northwest Atlanta, recent property acquisitions along Ridgemore Road and nearby Margaret Mitchell Drive will be contributing factors to the improved water quality and health of the creek. This Priority-1 Greenway Acquisition will protect vegetation within a minimum 100-foot conservation easement of the creek. Vegetation along the stream bank is left undisturbed in a conservation easement, which acts as a protective buffer against pollutants that could potentially harm sensitive water resources. In addition to the water quality benefits, conservation easements allow the owner to retain their private property rights.
