Slate’s new Placemakers Podcast devoted its second episode to tell the story of the revitalization of East Lake Meadows in Atlanta, GA. The transformation of East Lake is the blueprint for the Purpose Built Communities Model. It features detailed and sometimes intimate recollections from some of the key people involved in starting what would become a national model for holistic revitalization, replicated from coast to coast. You can listen here or download the episode in the iTunes store (for free).
