An article was recently posted on the East Atlanta Patch website describing the efforts of Candler Park resident Amy Stout and the Neighborhood Planning Unit-N to install bike racks in local neighborhoods. Candler Park's bike racks are located at First Existentialist Congregation and Epworth United Methodist Church. Initiatives like these are important to Mayor Kasim Reed's desire to make Atlanta one of the top 10 cities in the country for cyclists. Read more about these efforts and the results here. Way to be, Amy!
Today Mary Lin principal Brian Mitchell provided the following update on the Mary Lin renovation project:
Permit update: Traffic, Arborist and Sewer Capacity review is complete and marked as approved. However Site Development is reviewing the latest revised drawings from the Civil Engineer which was submitted on 09/03/13. At this pace I do not believe construction will start on Monday, 9/23/13. It is possible construction could start, a week later, 9/30/13 contingent on receiving the Land Disturbance Permit ( LDP) next week from the City Site Development.
He also noted that he has a request in to view the traffic patterns that were approved; he will pass along information as he is able to get it.

Due to an editorial error, the days shown for the headline acts at this year's Fall Fest were incorrect in the print version of the Messenger and an earlier version posted on candlerpark.org. The lead Fall Fest article should have noted that Saturday night's headliners are Blair Crimmins and the Hookers and Sunday night's headliners are Atlanta's Blues Queens. The editor regrets the error and it has been corrected in the online version, available here.
If you've ever been curious about certain aspects of the zoning regulations in Candler Park, CPNO Zoning Officer Mischa Uppelschoten put together this handy FAQ. Thanks much, Mischa!
This Saturday evening, September 7, we'll have yet another fabulous Candler Park movie night in the park. The feature presentation will be Wreck It Ralph: http://movies.disney.com/wreck-it-ralph (Please note that Ferris Bueller was previously scheduled for this date but changed due to concerns about language.)
The movie will start at dusk, which is around 8 pm, but come at 7 pm for hanging out with neighbors and kids running around.
Also, save yourself the trouble of making dinner that night. CP neighbor Chris Fitzgerald, co-owner of Uncle Maddio's at Edgewood, will be there selling pizza (thanks Chris!). So bring your blanket and chairs and make an evening of it.
The September 2013 issue of the Candler Park Messenger is available now - click here to read it in PDF format.
A quick reminder that tonight is another movie with friends and neighbors under the stars.
Tonight's feature presentation is Pee Wee's Big Adventure and it'll start at sunset (around 8 pm). Our seed-spitting contest got rained out at the last movie night, so we'll give that another go some time in the 7:00 hour. Tell your pint-sized seed-spitters to bring their game face.
At the CPNO monthly membership meeting on Monday night, a motion to approve the Candler Park Master Plan passed easily. There are a few steps in the process between approval and formal submission to the City, but it was great to see how many people came out to support the plan's approval. Thanks to the Master Plan Committee and Market + Main for all your hard work putting this together, answering questions, and gathering input along the way.
Hard to argue with that!
Attached is the permit for this year's Fall Festival. Feel free to bring up any questions you may have at the meeting tonight or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
