Collection Description

Biographical Note

CAUTION, Inc. (Coalition Against Unnecessary Thoroughfares In Our Neighborhood) , was formed in 1982 by the neighborhood associations of Inman Park, Druid Hills, Candler Park, Lake Claire, East Lake, Virginia-Highland, Poncey-Highland and City of Decatur. The purpose of the coalition was to stop the Presidential Parkway, a proposed 4-land expressway designed with 5 bridges, high speeds and truck traffic through these eight neighborhoods and their parks.

CAUTION's long legal, political, and civil engagements with the City of Atlanta and the Georgia Department of Transportation eventually led to a mediated settlement between those parties that resulted in the creation of Freedom Parkway.
