Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST Survey/Update

 

February 26- March 7, 2019, the City of Atlanta hosted public engagement meetings in support of its Renew Atlanta Bond/TSPLOST program prioritization and rebaselining efforts.

The meetings were held at four locations – one in each quadrant of the City. The purpose of these meetings was to inform the public about the program’s status, funding shortfalls, and to receive feedback for consideration in prioritizing the project list. The format for the public engagement meetings consisted of two parts: 1) a general overview was presented by the City’s Deputy COO, Joshua Williams, and Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST Interim General Manager, Michele Wynn; 2) small-group breakout sessions were held to provide constituents with a more detailed overview of the three proposed prioritization scenarios and delved deeper into the project list. Constituents also had the opportunity to ask questions, provide suggestions to the staff recommended list, and leave comments for response and/or consideration. Throughout the public engagement meetings, Council President Moore and Council Members Westmoreland, Dickens, Bond, Farokhi, Ide, Smith, Shook, Matzigkeit, Hillis, Boone, Overstreet, and Sheperd attended one or more meetings.

Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST Update

This is the follow up letter from Renew Atlanta after last week's public meeting. Please fill out the survey. Under projects you support please select "Complete Streets" and add "Euclid Ave" and "N. Highland". 

On behalf of Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST Interim General Manager, Michele Wynn, thank you for attending our first round of Prioritization & Rebaselining Public Engagement Meetings. We know your time is valuable and we appreciate your interest and commitment in helping us during this prioritization effort. 

As we discussed in these meetings, the cost to deliver the full scope of the initial program considerably exceeds the funding available from the Renew Atlanta Bond and TSPLOST revenues. Thus, we are working diligently to transparently prioritize and re-baseline the initial program lists to deliver the greatest impact to Atlanta’s above-ground infrastructure and transportation network with the available funds. Through this re-baselining, we are dedicated to engaging you, the stakeholders, to help inform the process.

IP Projects at Risk/RenewAtlanta

Funding for RenewAtlanta projects are in jeopardy. The city has a "Prioritization & Rebaselining Initiative" on their website. There isn't enough money for all the projects to be completed. We'll have to fight for ours and we'll need your help. 

For several years our Transportation Committee, headed by Janice Darling, has been working with Renew Atlanta on two projects in the neighborhood. The N. Highland safety improvements from N. Highland to Alaska Ave. and the Euclid and Edgewood intersection.  Both projects have met neighborhood approval and the plans are complete. They only need funding. both plans include bike lanes and crosswalks. The N. Highland one also include loading zones, increased parking and ride share pickups. These safety improvements are part of the complete streets project with Renew Atlanta and are greatly needed. Anyone who has tried to cross N. Highland at Barcelona knows we need safety improvements along this very busy area.   

Two rounds of public engagement meetings will be held. One is this Wednesday, January 22, 1019 from 6:30-8:00 pm at Grady High School and the other one is Thursday, March 7, 2019 from 6:30-8:00 pm also at Grady. The more people we have at these meetings supporting our N. Highland Complete Streets Project the more likely we are to get funding. The city needs to know we want and need these improvement done.

Gulch Town Hall Info

District 2 Friends and Neighbors, 

I will be hosting a special District 2 Town Hall meeting this Tuesday, October 30th at the Loudermilk Center (40 Courtland St. NE 30303) from 7-8:30PM. The sole item on the agenda will be the proposed "Gulch" development downtown. All constituents are welcome!  

I have received many emails and had countless conversations about this issue. As the proposed deal is complex and has changed several times over the last couple months, I thought it might be helpful for residents to have time to learn the current status, ask questions, and provide feedback.

I will do my best to present the objective facts related to the proposal, including the chief arguments from both sides. I'll be inviting representatives from CIM Group, the prospective developer, to answer questions as well. We'll then open things up to a thoughtful, informal Q&A. I hope to see you all there. See additional information below. 

The Gulch
A Quick Overview

The "Gulch" is a 40-acre area Downtown stretching from the Five Points Marta station to Mercedes-Benz stadium. Today, the Gulch lies vacant. It generates no tax revenue and impedes neighborhood or urban connectivity Downtown.

A developer, CIM Group, has been in negotiations with the City to build on the land, with government financial support.



 


As you know, a healthy debate has ensued over the last two months with the details of the deal evolving over time. There seems to be a general consensus that developing the Gulch would be good for Atlanta. Yet, there is concern whether the benefits warrant the size of public investment. The question is whether the deal, in its current form, is the best path forward. 

I look forward to a thoughtful discussion.

Logistics
Getting to the Loudermilk Center

The Center is a block away from the Atlanta Streetcar's Hurt Park and Auburn at Piedmont stops. It is served by a number of MARTA bus routes, including routes 3 and 816. It is also walking distance from the Peachtree Center and Five Points MARTA rail stations. There is a parking deck at the venue, which will validate.
