The Inman Park Neighborhood Association (IPNA) strongly supports the DeKalb Avenue Complete Street project because it will enhance the safety and accessibility of a primary Atlanta eastside corridor for people who walk, require ADA access, bike, drive, and take MARTA.

IPNA February 2018 Agenda

This month we'll vote on Villa de Grip's rezoning plan. The working group who has been working on the plan with the developers have determined they cannot support the application for rezoning in it's current form. The Villa de Grip site is currently a buffer for residential into the commercial district of the neighborhood. The group feels the project, which will have no residential at all, is too commercially dense and intensive.  The developers want a density that is more than 4 times what is currently allowed. A letter was sent to the developer from IP President Neil Kinkopf citing specific concerns. The letter can be read here in it's entirety.  The format for the Villa de Grip portion of the meeting can be read here. 

Also on the Agenda, we'll update on the Moreland Corridor Report, announce the nominating committee for the board and vote on Ro Lawson for board Secretary.

IPNA January 218 Meeting Agenda

This month's IPNA meeting will be a very important one, though not for the reason most of us would have anticipated.  We will NOT be voting on the application to rezone the Villa de Grip parcels from residential to commercial.  We will, however, be hearing from Scott Ball and Jeff Rader who have been working on a 10-year update to the report on the Moreland Avenue Corridor component of the Livable Centers Initiative.  That's a whole lot of jargon.  The update and report would serve as a plan for the Moreland Ave. corridor, which includes not only traffic and safety management along Moreland Ave. (which are critical in and of themselves) but also planning for development and zoning of parcels within the corridor, such as Bass Field.  A draft of the report can be found  here.
If possible, please plan to attend and participate in this important discussion. 
We will also vote on Ro Lawson as Board Secretary, Vote on 802 Lake Ave.- Type III COA for additions to basement of home and a change of agent liquor license for Kimmie's Bistro.

Renew Atlanta Dec Update

Regan Hammond from Renew Atlanta came to our meeting Wednesday night to give an update on the three projects they've targeted. You can see the slides here

Here’s some bullets on where we stand with the 3 projects:

  • Edgewood @ Euclid – We have received traffic and turning moving counts for the intersection and will be adjusting the design a bit based on those.  Those counts will help us determine whether or not the left turn lane from Edgewood to Euclid is needed.  If it is needed, the counts will also tell us how long it needs to be.  The Cycle Atlanta Study recommended no left turn lane, so we needed to do this extra analysis to align our design with that plan’s recommendations.  We are going make some small adjustments to the new crosswalk/ped refuge island design and how we accommodate bikes traveling from Euclid to the Edgewood westbound bike lane.  We also updated the cost estimate to reflect the latest unit cost for hex pavers.
  • Irwin @ Krog – The Dept. of Public Works is replacing the crumbled sidewalk on the south side of Irwin between the Beltline and Krog.  Demo of the old sidewalk is starting this week and reconstruction will begin right after the new year.  They will also upgrade all of the ped ramps at the intersection to be ADA compliant.  The Renew Atlanta funding will be used to mill, repave, and restripe Irwin between Waddell and Auburn after the sidewalk/ramp work is complete.  The cost estimate has been updated to reflect this.
  • N. Highland – We received 2 draft concept options for traffic calming, ped crossing, and traffic control at the ped crossing from our study consultant.  I’ve included those drafts in this presentation, but we do not yet have cost estimates.  These concept options are being reviewed internally and will be slightly tweaked a bit before being brought to the public in late January/early February for comment.  We’ll then select the preferred concept and finalize design by late February/early March.  This particular improvement has additional funding (Impact Fee - $100k) to supplement the Renew funding for construction.

Jenkins Metal Meeting Cancelled

Thrive Homes, the developers of the Jenkins Metals site, have decided to cancel the meeting that had been scheduled for tomorrow (Wednesday, September 27) at the Trolley Barn.  I believe that they have come to understand that their initial site plan did not comply with our Historic District Regulations and they are now undertaking to redesign the project with these requirements in mind. The developers have not yet rescheduled the neighborhood meeting.  As soon as IPNA gets word on this, we will let the neighborhood know.

Inman Park Social

Join the Inman Park Neighborhood Association and it's 21 volunteer committees for our first ever Inman Park Social! We'll have food trucks, free beer and wine, live music and opportunities to get involved in your community.

Inman Park is a walkable neighborhood with historic homes, friendly neighbors, delicious food, locally owned retailers, and public art. Communities like ours don't happen organically.  They happen because hundreds of neighbors donate their time and talents to continually create and maintain Inman Park. Donate your time and talent to one of our committees. Commitments aren't a full time job. Donate what time you have and offer your expertise. 

Volunteering is also a great way to get to know your neighbors. Your home is in Inman Park, become part of your community. Inman Park is more than a location.
