Atlanta City Council District 2

The 24-hour District

Atlanta can become the next ‘city that doesn’t sleep’. Expansion of the nighttime economy will create jobs for the locals here, and can curb many problems that are affecting District 2 currently.

When you lose downtown, you lose the city.

THE DISTRICT

Her vision is to create a 24-hour entertainment district. She believes that without a thriving downtown, the city suffers. Right now downtown (which is only a portion of her district) is a mix of an upcoming university/ business landscape, but is also plagued with homelessness and dilapidated buildings.

The entertainment district will revitalize downtown and also bolster the nighttime economy. Atlanta can become the next ‘city that doesn’t sleep’. Expansion of the nighttime economy will create jobs for the locals here, and can curb many problems that are affecting District 2 currently.

Zelda also believes in addressing issues that the residents of Inman Park and Poncey-Highland face on a day to day basis. Foremost among these is creating a one-stop transit authority to handle public transport. Making transport accessible to all is a major part of her vision. It is also the key to unlocking the city’s potential to cater to the public around the clock.
