Greene Property
T
he Greene property acquisition was a unique opportunity for the City of Atlanta to work with The Conservation Fund, a non-profit land trust, to preserve greenspace along Utoy Creek in southwest Atlanta. This property is comprised of 99.89 acres, most of which is floodplain that winds along 6,400 feet of Utoy Creek's main stem. This acquisition also presented an opportunity to combine Georgia Greenspace funds with Atlanta Greenway Acquisition project funds. Through the use of money from two sources, more land was able to be protected by the City of Atlanta. This acquisition will also continue to build connectivity on Utoy Creek. A high percentage of property owners along Utoy Creek have participated in the project, which has resulted in a connected corridor of protected greenspace. A connected corridor provides a more stable habitat for plants and animals.
