100+ Residents Show Up to Make East Lake MARTA Theirs, Ours, and Yours

City of Atlanta Councilwoman Natalyn Archibong and Decatur Mayor Patti Garrett kicked off two days of collaborative East Lake MARTA planning discussions Monday night by echoing sentiments shared by the the ambitious project’s multiple partners — the cities of Decatur and Atlanta, Dekalb County, and MARTA:

“There is no preconceived plan before tonight’s meeting,” said Mayor Garrett. “We are starting with a blank canvas and look forward to working with all of you to craft a vision for this station and its corridors that makes East Lake MARTA yours.”
