ATLANTA, Ga. -- Residents are invited to an Open House hosted by the McPherson Community Engagement Subcommittee and Atlanta City Council Member Joyce Sheperd.

According to a release from the city, "the city of Atlanta has a goal of redeveloping the 488-acre former Army site to create jobs and promote economic development."
The City of Atlanta plans to re purpose the space with an "event space, paths, and bike trails that would wrap the property connecting MARTA station to MARTA station. Also plans are being made for a consolidated police and fire safety academy for the City of Atlanta."
