Atlanta ranks high in quality of life

A T L A N T A your new hometown

WELCOME HOME!

…to a city where every other street seems to have “Peachtree” in its name, where its citizens are as determined and resilient as

Scarlet O’Hara, where a soft drink has become “the Real Thing” the world over, where the courageous leader of America’s civil rights

movement called home and where the status of an international city is firmly established by hosting the Olympics.

The area of Atlanta was originally populated by a Native American moundbuilding

society. Many of Atlanta's corridors follow the paths created by the

Creek and Cherokee Indian nations, who inhabited the area until the early

19th Century. A large Creek settlement was called Standing Pitch Tree after

a tall lone tree. Over time, the "pitch tree" became "peach tree." No matter

where you go in Atlanta, you always seem to be driving on Peachtree.

At the time of the American Revolution, the Creek, thought to be

descendants of the early inhabitants, had established Standing Peachtree

Village near the site of an ancient mound by the confluence of the

Chattahoochee River and Peachtree Creek. The village was a hub for

several major trails and functioned as an important trading center. A large

section of one of the main trails, which ran from the village to present-day

Suwannee, was upgraded by local European settlers near Fort Daniel built,

during the War of 1812, in what is now Gwinnett County. This led to the

building in 1813 of Fort Peachtree on a rise overlooking the Chattahoochee

River. The former trail that now connected the two forts became known as

the original Peachtree Road.

In 1821 the Creek ceded the lands surrounding the Atlanta area to the

State of Georgia. The first European settler in what is now Atlanta was

Hardy Ivy, who in 1833 built a cabin near present day Courtland Street

and International Boulevard. In 1836, in an effort to compete for trade, the

Georgia legislature approved the construction of a railroad to connect the

area near Chattanooga, Tennessee to “"...a point on the southeastern bank

of the Chattahoochee River." Army engineer Colonel Stephen Harriman

Long was chosen to determine the most practical route for the new

Western and Atlantic Railroad line. After exploring half a dozen options

he chose a site nine miles south of the river. In 1837, a stake was driven

into the red clay on Hardy Ivy’s property and the town that was to become

the city of Atlanta became the “end of the line.” Aptly named Terminus by

the railroad’s chief engineer, the town boomed. As the town continued to

grow and prosper, the name Atlanta was chosen to represent the thriving,

progressive community that today nearly 5,500,000 residents call home.

Today, the Atlanta metropolitan area consistently ranks high

in overall quality of life when compared to other cities in the country

for numerous reasons. It is home to notable businesses such as Cingular

Wireless, CNN, Cox Communications, EarthLink, Equifax Georgia-

Pacific, Horne Depot, the Weather Channel and UPS, and continues to

function as a major economic hub.

With a passenger terminal complex equivalent to more than 45

football fields, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the

world’s busiest passenger airport. Atlanta is an ideal location for carriers

like hometown Delta Air Lines, as the city is only a 2-hour flight away

from 83 percent of U.S. cities. Every day, nearly 250,000 passengers travel

through Hartsfield-Jackson making it the world’s busiest passenger airport.

Atlanta offers its residents distinct seasons and a temperate climate.

The flowering of the dogwood trees in the spring brings a festive air to


The Georgia Aquarium

hockey’s Atlanta Thrashers. Three state-of-the-art facilities, Philips Arena,

the Georgia Dome, and Turner Field host these events and have also been

home to the World Series, Major League Baseball’s All Star Game, two

Super Bowls, NCAA Regional and Final Four basketball tournaments, the

Peach Bowl and the SEC Championship Game.

Education is well served in the Atlanta area with 26 public school systems

and over 150 private schools. Atlanta consistently ranks high in the total

number of post¬secondary degrees conferred annually. Students from

around the world come to Atlanta to attend renowned institutions such as

Emory University, the Georgia Institute of Technology and Georgia State

University.

Housing choices abound in the metro Atlanta area. Because the region

covers such a large area there are homes and settings available to match any

lifestyle. For those who enjoy in-town living, choices can run the gamut

from quaint bungalows, 19th century Victorian homes and amenity-rich

condo and apartment communities to trendy urban lofts, posh high-rises

and modern, custom-built mansions. Prefer a suburban setting? There are

plentiful options that range from family-oriented neighborhoods to upscale

golf, equestrian and tennis communities featuring luxurious homes.

The rural areas of the metro region offer spacious settings for existing or

new homes with a relaxed feel embodying the graciousness of the South.

Land is available for people who have plans for building a dream house,

while existing homes offer choices sure to satisfy anyone seeking a pastoral

repose.

Opportunities are also available for homeowners with exclusive tastes.

Numerous choices exist in golf and country club communities offering

private memberships and custom homes.

the city, one of the greenest metro areas in the eastern part of the nation.

Summers, which can have extended hot and humid spells, are tempered

somewhat by Atlanta’s elevation on the edge of north Georgia’s Piedmont

region. When fall moseys into the Atlanta region, the abundant greenery

creates a decidedly more colorful canopy. Winters can be cold but daytime

temperatures are usually comfortable enough to enjoy being outdoors.

Due to Atlanta’s ideal location, recreational activities abound in Georgia.

Day trips offer opportunities in hiking, water skiing and whitewater rafting.

A four-hour drive from Atlanta can bring you to the charm and grace of

Savannah and the Georgia Coast, or the splendor of the North Carolina

Mountains.

With over 8,000 restaurants in the metro area that range from simple

and satisfying to elegant and gourmet, one never needs to go far to find

a good meal. With every major U.S. regional cuisine represented as well

as offerings from the cuisines of Europe, Latin and South America, Africa

and Asia, those in search of outstanding culinary experiences will have an

endless adventure.

Cultural appetites can also be well sated. The High Museum of Art, The

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Atlanta Ballet, the Alliance Theater, the

famous Fox Theater and the Civic Center plus art galleries, comedy clubs,

live music venues and local festivals are but a few of the host of choices

available for a sophisticated night on the town or a weekend of fun. For

entertainment the whole family would enjoy Atlanta offers Six Flags Over

Georgia, the Presidential Center, the Fembank Natural History Museum,

the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, Zoo

Atlanta, the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coke.

Pro sporting events run year-round in Atlanta, which is home to baseball’s

Atlanta Braves, football’s Atlanta Falcons, basketball’s Atlanta Hawks and

Atlanta is Thriving

Companies are voting with their feet and choosing Atlanta to

expand their campuses and build their headquarters. Companies

like NCR Corporation, the global leader in consumer transaction

technologies, announced that they will relocate their headquarters

to Midtown, bringing up to 3,600 jobs to Atlanta. Porsche Cars,

Cardlyitcs, Prince Tennis, Athena Health and Pulte Group are all

moving into the City of Atlanta, creating new jobs and opportunity

for our residents.

We are witnessing a rebirth in residential and commercial development.

We celebrated the grand opening of Buckhead Atlanta and Ponce

City Market is set to open next spring. Underground Atlanta was sold

to WRS, Inc. who plans to redevelop the 12-acre property to include

mixed-use retail and housing space furthering the improvement of

our downtown corridor. I also attended the grand openings of two

new attractions in our main tourism corridor – the Center for Civil

and Human Rights and the College Football Hall of Fame. Every

ribbon cutting event and groundbreaking ceremony is not just a win

for our business community, it’s a win for Atlanta because these new

developments create new jobs and revitalize neighborhoods across

our great city.

Now more than ever, we are a place where you can start and grow

your business. We have established programs that offer invaluable

resources for entrepreneurs in the City. Programs like the Women’s

Entrepreneurs Initiative, that provides women entrepreneurs in the

city resources such as educational workshops, mentorship, and legal

and marketing advice to accelerate their business growth and the

Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program, who along with

ACE will provide $3 million in loan capital for small businesses in

Atlanta. We recognize that empowering entrepreneurs promotes

job creation and strengthens our economy.

We have a vision of not just being another great city but being the

leader in economic and cultural development in the southeast. The

City of Atlanta was awarded the largest TIGER II grant in America

and on December 30, 2014 we celebrated the official opening of the

Atlanta Streetcar. The Atlanta Streetcar represents the first step in

the dawning of a new era for transit in our city. The addition of the

Atlanta Streetcar to the City will stimulate increased investment, grow

jobs and offer residents, students, and visitors another transit option,

an option that 51,000 people chose in the first month of operation.

We are also expanding the Atlanta Beltline. This fall we broke ground

on the Atlanta BeltLine’s Westside Trail, the largest expansion in

its history of Atlanta Beltline through

$43 million public-private investment.

The Atlanta Beltline connects 45

neighborhoods and my Administration

has already taken the first steps in

bringing the Streetcar to the Beltline.

We’re promoting connectivity between

communities and neighborhoods, so

that regardless of where you live, you

can experience everything this great city

has to offer.

It’s an exciting time in the City of Atlanta.

Families and companies are choosing

the City of Atlanta because Atlanta

has proven to be a destination

for innovation and opportunity.

Atlanta is a city where you can

bring and build your dreams.
