Woodcliff Property
A
s the first acquisition under the City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Project, this property acquisition is also one of the most notable. The surrounding community struggled to keep this Priority-1 status property from being developed for over two years. With the assistance of the community and a non-profit agency, The Nature Conservancy, the City of Atlanta was successful in acquiring this property using multiple City funding sources (Greenway Acquisition Project funds, Georgia Greenspace Program monies, and City of Atlanta Park Impact Fees). The property was purchased for a total price of $1,942,844, however only $56,719.90 of Greenway Acquisition Project monies were used. The Woodcliff Terrace community reduced the City of Atlanta's final purchase price by contributing funds raised for the acquisition of this property. Shortly after the acquisition and final preservation of this property, the City of Atlanta and the Woodcliff Terrace community held a collaborative, on-site celebration.
