Full of history and close proximity to downtown Atlanta, East Lake and Grove Park are two communities that are prime areas for revitalization.
East Lake has done just that through a project founded by Atlanta real estate developer Tom Cousins, called Purpose Built Communities.
Since East Lake has been a part of the program, violent crime is down, test scores and property values are up.
Now Grove Park, also known as Bankhead, has joined the program and is looking to enjoy the same success as East Lake.
GPB's Leah Fleming discusses revitalization efforts with Debra Edelson of the Grove Park Foundation and Rhonda Fisher of the East Lake Foundation.
