The 2020 GPNA Officers and Chairs elections will be held in this month’s meeting. The only voting will be for the President position, as the other positions that are currently filled will continue. Those positions are Treasurer Michelle Botwinick, Economic Chair Samantha McKinlay, Home & History Chair Paul Simo, Land Use & Zoning Chair Rick Hudson, Public Safety Chair Chris Newman, and Technology Chair Stephanie Warner.

The President position voting is only for the current President Dr. Michelle Kirby or the former Fundraising chair Laura Keen.

Eligibility to vote requires that a member has attended at least 1 prior GPNA general membership meeting and that the member shows their ID to get their ballot. It is strongly encouraged that you show up 30 minutes before the meeting so that the GPNA Steering Group may check you in to get your ballot and elections rules. Voting is allowed between 7:10pm and 8:00pm.

We hope to see you all at this month’s meeting.

Metro Atlanta is slated to add 3 million people by 2040. Without more rail to move them around, "The city won’t be an enjoyable place to live.” Thanks to WABE's Rose Scott for having #BeltLineRailNow co-chair Patty Durand on today to talk transit, along with MARTA chief Jeffrey Parker and Chris Tomlinson of The ATL. Nice to see a news outlet taking a deep dive into the subject.

Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) held a study group meeting on July 31 at Church of Atlanta Lighthouse on Boulevard. The purpose of this meeting was to present the findings from the open house that was held in April of 2018 and receive your feedback on the draft recommendations for land use (e.g. mixed-use, housing, commercial services), mobility (e.g. trails, sidewalks, bikes, transit), parks, and greenspace in BeltLine Subarea 3.

Tips for navigating a Beltline corridor—now officially open to the public and structurally safer!—that’s been cleared of its railroad bones.

Since Atlanta voters agreed to raise sales taxes to fund more transit three years ago, MARTA and the city of Atlanta have been trying to reconcile a long list of projects with a short pile of cash. We don’t envy them. Nearly 20 years after the last rail stations were built, we need all the projects on the More MARTA list – improved bus service, crosstown bus rapid transit lines and light rail – and we need them now.

The City of Atlanta is divided into twenty-five Neighborhood Planning Units (NPUs), which are citizen advisory councils that make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on zoning, land use, special events and other planning issues.

Get your sunburst... Everybody is doing it! This unofficial symbol of the neighborhood has been quite popular through the years as evidenced by the number of them that you see hanging from Grant Park homes. Sunbursts are pre-painted in yellow and blue and homeowners are encouraged to add their house numbers.

Kroger will donate money to GPNA, now you must annually renew your Plus Card! Also select Grant Park Neighborhood Association Inc @AmazonSmile.
