Event Details


CityLights at Fort McPherson


Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to join us as we perform special reconnaissance on Fort McPherson. We have been given security clearance to visit the site and look into its future use.

After more than 120 years of service, this historic site is primed for redevelopment. It’s a very exciting time as we envision the potential of 487 acres inside Southwest Atlanta, approximately three miles from downtown Atlanta and three miles north of Hartsfield International Airport.

We do hope you will volunteer for this important and entertaining mission. You will gather at Fort McPherson for lunch on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, from 11am to 12:45 pm.


You must pre-register here by May 1, 2013.

Reserve your seat for the bus tour, lunch & gain clearance at the gate!
