Available green space in Atlanta is hard to find. The City currently allows for the use of Atlanta Public School (APS) facilities and green spaces by third-party groups, or youth recreation and sporting organizations without requiring special use permits. These activities and partnerships bring worthwhile benefits to the children, families, schools, and neighborhoods in our City. This use is currently being contested.
I support the City's decision that no zoning violation exists when APS allows school facilities and fields to be used for youth-oriented activities and recreation by third-party groups.
