Westover Plantation Property
T
he Westover Plantation property acquisition will protect approximately 2,050 feet of Peachtree Creek, and over eight acres of greenspace located entirely within the 100-year floodplain. In this established area of Atlanta, vegetated stream buffers and greenspace help improve water quality and control flooding. The 100-year floodplain is defined as the area that has a one percent chance of flooding in any given year. Millions of dollars in structural damages can result if property is developed within the floodplain. The permanent protection of a conservation easement (a 100-foot wide segment) along Peachtree Creek will ensure that development does not occur inside the floodplain. Whether it provides connectivity, improved wildlife habitat or floodplain protection, every greenway property has its own unique features to contribute to the City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Project.
