    FROM ThE EdITORS Your New City, Your New Home If you?re planning a move to Atlanta, then you are not alone. In the past year, the state of Georgia welcomed more than 162,000 new residents. This positive statistic ranks the Peach State in the top three for population growth nationally. It is clear that Atlanta?s sterling reputation for a low cost of living, high quality of life, mild weather and enviable location is attracting new businesses and residents from far and wide. As you are planning your move, we?d like you to consider KNOWAtlanta as your official relocation ambassador, giving you the best insight into your new city. Inside this issue, you?ll learn the lay of the land with the help of our new section, Compass to the City. Our compass divides the Atlanta metro area into five regions?intown, north, northeast, northwest and south?offering the best places to live, work and play within each area. In this issue you?ll also find listings of local neighborhoods, suggestions on where to make your real estate investment, a snapshot of the local business community and a guide to schools and health systems. For decades, Atlanta has been referred to as ?The Capital of the South.? These days, Atlanta is more than a cultural metropolis; it?s a gateway to the world. As the host of the 1996 Summer Olympics and home of the world?s busiest airport, Atlanta is becoming an international city. On page 32, you?ll discover Atlanta?s diverse cultural communities, international businesses and consulates that have made a home here and the best restaurants for authentic, global cuisine. Our winter issue also includes information on Atlanta?s newest homebuilding trend: eco-living. Atlanta?s homebuilders are turning over a new leaf and offering homes and neighborhoods that utilize sustainable materials and ecoconscious amenities, such as water features that double as retaining ponds and saline pools. Atlanta city officials are also implementing a long list of green city initiatives and improvements. Look for the article on page 52. As you start packing your boxes and searching for your next home, look to KNOWAtlanta for the resources that can help you in every part of your move. We?re here to help, and you can find even more information on our website, knowatlanta.com. Welcome to the neighborhood!
