Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Wednesday Planning Session: NPU-S Comprehensive Development Plan The City of Atlanta's *Comprehensive Development Plan* is a state-mandated plan for growth encompassing the next five years. We're currently coming to the end of the last CDP, finished in 2021. /Normally,/ an update to the CDP would involve multiple rounds of in-depth, community-driven design sessions with the Department of Planning. However 2020 was not a normal year, and the entire City of Atlanta is still recovering. The Planning Department simply does not have the capacity this year to engage in a full-bore update involving all 25 NPUs. So for this year, they're simply filing an *administrative update*, as allowed by law, with an eye towards a complete update /next/ year. However, just because it's a smaller update doesn't mean that we can't be involved! *This Wednesday, the 26th, we'll be holding a brief meeting with the Planning Department to go over NPU-S's policies*. This is our opportunity to lay down the principles that will guide zoning for the next year - all zoning must conform to the CDP, or else the CDP needs to also be changed. It'll also be an opportunity for us to get a taste of types of planning we'll engage with next year, where we'll get a change to actually redraw maps. Think of it as a planning appetizer. Come on out! * When: *Wednesday, May 26, 6pm* * Video: https://zoom.us/j/93753708305 * Meeting ID: 937 5370 8305 * Dial in: 312-626-6799, access code, 937 5370 8305# *NPU-S's current 2016 NPU policies* can be found at https://drive.google.com/file/d/15uM596RRWW32hBJ4zPJI7axTBfcRLynP/view?usp=sharing . The *entire Atlanta 2016 CDP* can be found at https://www.atlantaga.gov/government/departments/city-planning/office-of-zoning-development/zoning/2016-comprehensive-development-plan-cdp . It's big, but worth looking over if you want to see how the whole vision comes together.

Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Summer Book Club for Upcoming MARTA Bus Network Redesign From the MARTA Army : MARTA is embarking on a Bus Network Redesign that could thoroughly change the shape and feel of our city's bus network. Riders could have more reliable and frequent buses, easier transfers, and be able to go to more places more quickly. Tradeoffs would be that some bus stops and even entire routes are removed in order to free up resources (buses and drivers) to improve the rest of the network. This process cannot happen without engagement from transit supporters. MARTA Army and several of our partner organizations are conducting a book club of /Human Transit/. A book written by Jarrett Walker, whose firm is leading this effort with MARTA, on how transit can be an integral and sustainable part of society. The goal of the book club is to engage transit supporters and develop within them the confidence to articulate what they want and need out of the system. Anyone who wants to participate can sign up here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/transit-oriented-book-club-feat-human-transit-by-jarrett-walker-registration-154262718945 Posted by admin at 5/22/2021 No comments: Email This BlogThis!

Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Neighborhood Survey - Expansion of PAD 311 Services in Your Area From the City of Atlanta: The Policing Alternatives & Diversion Initiative (PAD) has recently expanded to accept community referrals through the City of Atlanta 311 non-emergency city services line for quality of life concerns related to unmet mental health needs, substance use, or extreme poverty. Typically, community members have been advised to call 911 for these type of concerns, but this new resource offers an alternative approach. When a community member makes a referral to 311, a PAD response team travels to the area to offer immediate assistance to the referred individual. These services are currently available in Atlanta Police Department Zones 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6, and will be citywide by this summer. The success of this new resource depends on strong connections with community members. PAD wants to get to know the unique character of each neighborhood and partner with Atlanta residents to build a new approach to community safety and wellness. Your input will help shape their services and future engagement with our community. The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete, and all responses are anonymous - PADNeighborhoodSurvey .
