CITY OF REFUGE
Neighbors and City Councilman Adam McGough hoped an Atlanta-based nonprofit would realize the dream of a 12-acre urban farm at 12000 Greenville Ave., which would also provide resources and opportunities for homeless and low-income neighbors. The proposed project eased through City Hall until November, when concerns arose in City Council. The nonprofit, City of Refuge, has backed off the project but McGough says he still wants to make the concept a reality.
