Strange as it might seem, I would like to see Atlanta grow. The city itself is less than 500K but embedded in a 5.5M surround. As such, the city itself seems like a big urban village. The infrastructure of roads is a mixture of two lane, four lane, and six lane streets alternating in size as you go. The “grand” Peachtree St. is a narrow street in downtown and midtown ATL that widens in the Buckhead section of the city and then becomes bigger and bigger as the population get less dense. In brief, the central core should ideally have twice the density and the city should be >1m in population. Fortunately, it is becoming denser.
