Margaret Mitchell Drive Property
T
his greenway acquisition is comprised of a linear vacant lot which has never been developed. The plant life on the property is diverse, and includes some extremely large and beautiful hardwood trees. This property is also partially located in the floodplain. Preserving the floodplain in an undeveloped state reduces the risk of flooding downstream. Due to the unusual linear shape of this property, an exceptional amount of stream frontage is protected by this acquisition. The property is also located across Peachtree Creek from the Ridgemore Road property. Both of these acquisitions are located adjacent to the confluence of Nancy and Peachtree Creeks. Therefore, this area is an area vulnerable to erosion. Having multiple protected properties that are adjacent creates a more stable system for habitat protection. This acquisition also protects a small tributary that is located near the southern corner of the property.
