Atlanta’s Outlook For 2012: Less New Condominiums, More Garbage Cans

The best part of hitting the midway point of January is that we can finally stop making gigantic resolutions, and opt instead for small, yet concrete victories. Last week, I read of two such small wins:

1) – There are less newly constructed condominium units on the market. According to the AJC there are a bunch of Atlanta developments on the verge of finally selling out. The market hasn’t been terribly forgiving for the overbuilding binge, so any news about increasing sales – even at dramatic discounts – is a positive sign.

2) – Our city is receiving more strategically placed garbage cans. The additional garbage cans are part of City Councilman Kwanza Hall’s seven point plan to help resusitate the stretch of Boulevard that runs from Freedom Parkway to Ponce de Leon Avenue. Known around many homes simply as “”that stretch of Boulevard where you never want to run out of gas,”” this area is in dire need of… something. Only time will tell if Hall’s plan is a solution or just a temporary salve, but I give him credit for stepping up to the plate.

Atlanta, I have a feeling that it’s going to be a great year!
