More on the Beltline scam
From today’s AJC
Mason owns 5 miles of the proposed Beltline in northeast Atlanta. He had offered about half of his land to Atlanta for the Beltline network of transit, trails and parks. Atlanta planners rejected his offer and instead offered him a deal in which he would have donated his land to Atlanta in exchange for the right to develop about 2,000 residences anywhere in the city.
What is amazing is that this is going on in public. He sells the land in exchange for permits? How is that not every definition of graft?
