What are the next steps for the Atlanta BeltLine?

The Atlanta BeltLine is a massive, comprehensive project that touches more than 45 neighborhoods. While a great deal of work has been accomplished in the past six years, there is much more to do. We must answer important questions about how we build the rest of the project – and we can only do that with your help.

In 2013, we will release an implementation plan that will guide us through the next five years as well as the next two decades. Working with the community, we finalized 10 master plans; completed a Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement for transit and trails; created an Equitable Development Plan, Community Benefits Principles, and Environmental Justice Policy; built five parks, three trails, and interim hiking trails; developed affordable housing; and created a dynamic public art program.

We need your help to inform the priorities of the project moving forward. The upcoming Citywide Conversation is your opportunity to hear about how we are shaping this plan, and what criteria we will use to prioritize projects. Following the Citywide Conversation, Study Group meetings will be scheduled to get your input on how we move projects forward.

Please join us as we begin the next exciting chapter for the Atlanta BeltLine!

What: Citywide Conversation – Atlanta BeltLine Implementation Plan
When: November 15, 2012 from 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Where: Friendship Baptist Church, 437 Mitchell Street, Atlanta 30313

Georgia’s historic drought and ongoing water supply concerns have continued to bring attention to the importance of water conservation and water-smart landscape and gardening practices. People every-where are seeking ways to minimize their water use, yet maintain an attractive landscape. Rain barrels can be part of the solution. A properly installed and maintained rain barrel can save a homeowner up to 1300 gallons of water during the three summer months alone.

In collaboration with Keeping It Wild and the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, WAWA will host a Rain Barrel Workshop on Friday, August 19, 2011 from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Outdoor Activity Center. The workshop, which includes an animated 40-minute presentation, will cover: water issues in metro Atlanta, how to save water in your home and garden, and how to install and maintain a rain barrel. Participants will receive a 60-gallon rain barrel that they will assemble and take home that night.

The cost of the workshop is $35 and includes the rain barrel. Space is limited so registration is required. To register or to receive more information about the workshop, send an e-mail to or call 404-752-5385.

The Outdoor Activity Center is located at 1442 Richland Rd. S.W. Atlanta, GA 30310.

National Night Out Tonight!

Hello Westview neighbors,

Tonight is National Night Out! Please stop by 1650 Rogers Ave (Michael and Kisha’s house) between 7-9pm. We’ll have hotdogs on the grill, and we are requesting neighbors to bring side items and school supplies. There will also be literature about public safety, a live DJ, a representative from ADT handing out some freebies, and an opportunity to speak with a police officer. Even if you can’t stay for long, stop by on your way home from work and say hello.

National Night Out is a nationwide crime/drug prevention event. It is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for local anticrime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

See you this evening!
