What Bert Has To Say About Chattanooga Metro Area

The colorfully named Chattanooga is a transportation and historic gateway to the Deep South. It was a zone of contention in the latter stages of the Civil War, and history plays a big role in the city’s conscience. For years it marched on as a non-descript old-South city with areas of urban decay in the old city center, environmental and crime issues. An ambitious downtown redevelopment initiative, just completed with public and private support, has brought a lot of life back into the downtown area, both as a commercial and recreation destination.
