Stinson Property
T
he Stinson property is an undeveloped parcel located in the Cascade Heights residential area on Westport Way, in southwest Atlanta. Lush vegetation and mature hardwood trees, several of which lay fallen across the creek, characterize this segment of North Utoy Creek. The fallen trees indicate the possibility of erosion damage to the stream bank. During periods of heavy rain or high water levels, the root structure is weakened when the soil that anchors the trees is washed away. The vegetation protected by the Greenway Acquisition Project will be a natural riparian buffer to absorb water from the soil, and reduce the impact of floodwaters on the stream bank.
