his property was ideal for acquisition under the Greenway Acquisition Project because it is a vacant, Priority-1 status property, with mature forest vegetation and an approximately 100-foot wide floodplain. This property was also desired for acquisition because it is located adjacent to another Greenway Property, the Swann Preserve (the southern Swallow Circle property boundary is a shared boundary with the Swann Preserve property). Acquisition of adjacent properties is an important component of the Greenway Acquisition Project because connectivity allows for greater protection of Metro Atlanta streams through the establishment of greenway corridors that not only add to number of linear streamside feet protected, but overall stability of the protected area.
