The Piedmont Park Conservancy was honored to be a part of the 2017 Mayoral Candidate Forum Greenspace. The event was on Thursday, July 13th from 6:00pm to 7:15pm at the Georgia State University Student Center. This unique and crucial event was hosted in partnership with several nonprofit partners, all working toward the common goal of maintaining, conserving and building our city’s greenspace amenities: Park Pride, Trees Atlanta, Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, The Nature Conservancy, The Conservation Fund, Piedmont Park Conservancy, The Georgia Conservancy, The Trust for Public Land, and West Atlanta Watershed Alliance. The forum was generously sponsored by Cox Enterprises and moderated by Maria Saporta.
Knowing your potential mayor’s views on greenspace is critical to Atlanta’s future.
