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.

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.

In the first days of the revitalization of the Grant Park neighborhood, when only a handful of people envisioned the potential of this urban neighborhood, the Association to Revive Grant Park (ARGP) was formed. ARGP, begun in 1973, was the largest of three civic organizations in the neighborhood. The association’s purpose was to help preserve and promote Grant Park as a viable community. In 1975, ARGP was incorporated as a non-profit organization. In the late 1980's the name was changed to the Grant Park Neighborhood Association (GPNA).
