Little 5 Points Mobillty Study POP-UP STUDIO

Please drop in for one or more of the sessions.

For decades Little 5 Points has served as a go-to place for anyone looking to experience a unique slice of urban counterculture.  To call it a retail and entertainment destination would be missing the point.  Little 5 Points is an authentic Atlanta experience – one that mixes grit and creativity with underground theatre, cutting-edge music and unique mom-and-pop shops.  While these eccentricities are integral to Little 5 Points as a great place, its public spaces, streets, sidewalks and parking lots are long overdue for improvements.

The Little 5 Points CID and Little 5 Points Alliance are starting an ambitious effort to redesign the “bones” of L5P, with specific focus on Euclid Avenue and overall parking management.

Plant Trees and Shrubs in Springvale Park


Celebrate MLK Weekend by joining your neighbors to plant trees and shrubs in Springvale Park on Saturday, January 18, 9:00 a.m. to noon. Meet at the corner of Edgewood and Waverly. All ages are welcome! No experience is necessary! Trees Atlanta and Inman Park Tree Watch will provide both tools and instruction. You should wear closed-toed shoes or boots and clothes that can get dirty. If you have your own work gloves, bring them. Also bring water in a reusable container. If you prefer not to plant, you can fill buckets with mulch. If you don't care for pitchforks, you could volunteer to bring snacks. If baking's not your thing, you can simply ooh and aah as our fabulous neighborhood continues its incredible efforts to return its beloved park to its full glory. Trees Atlanta would be delighted to have you sign up in advance: simply go to http://bit.ly/SpringvalePlanting. Contact Jim Abbot ([email protected], 404-281-0638) with questions. 
Inman Park Tree Watch is also organizing a Leap Day Tree Planting for Saturday, February 29. We will mostly be replacing young trees that have died, but any neighbor interested in leaping into a greener future, by planting a shade tree in your yard or smaller tree along the street, should feel free to contact Jim. Additional details to come. 

Krog Tunnel Closure

The Krog Street tunnel will be partially closed/closed for filming on Jan 8,9&10.  See notice below for specifics on times and the type of closure. While this affects our neighbors to the south more than Inman Park, we want everyone to be safe!

2020 Print Membership Directory

IPNA will be printing new membership directories early next year.  If you want to be in the new directory, please go to inmanpark.org, login to check your profile and make sure all your information is correct. If you have a spouse/partner/significant other, make sure they are also a member of IPNA so they can be cross-referenced in the directory. If you have a s/p/so listed under your profile but they have not joined individually, they cannot be cross-referenced. IPNA membership is by individual, not household, while security patrol membership is by household.

We encourage everyone to check out their profile and make any corrections. This makes the job of printing the directory much easier on the individuals who are facilitating this process. Also, ask your friends and neighbors to join. The more, the merrier!

Thank you in advance for your cooperation,
