Hey neighbors, a fire broke out at Corner Tavern in L5P this afternoon, causing all lanes of Moreland Ave to shut-down in L5P. This is jamming roads throughout the area, which is pretty evident if you've tried to go anywhere. You may want to think twice about being on the roads for a little while if you can avoid it.
Thanks to more than 60 neighbors who participated at last night's Draft Master Plan Community Forum. A truly engaged group grabbed the opportunity, at Epworth Church, to review dozens of recommendations, and to offer their own insights and ideas.
For those who were unable to come: Our lead planner, Aaron Fortner, offered up his take on which ideas have so far garnered a consensus and which currently fall short of consensus. Among the former: A Candler Park conservancy and a weekly farmer's market. Among the latter: A dog park, or at least a specific location for one.
Come one, come all! On Saturday, May 25, the Candler Park Movie Night will be Brave.
Candler Park Movie Nights are FREE and take place in Candler Park at dusk (with plenty of running around and general shenanigans in the hour before that). Movie night is produced by Friends of Candler Park and funded by CPNO.
Movie Info: Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late. -- (C) Disney

From Scott Jacobs:
Gardeners of Candler Park, unite. Whether you garden vegetables or flowers, organic or traditional, experienced or just beginning with your first seedling, this group can help us all be better gardeners, enjoy our successes, learn from our failures, work collectively, share resources, and just have a good time with other gardeners. The group will be able to think about several kinds of activities, including:
• Companionship for gardening addicts: Meeting to exchange gardening methods and information
• Touring gardens in the neighborhood
• Trading seeds and seedlings (those of us who germinate always have too many seeds and seedlings)
• Showing novice gardeners some techniques and advice such as fertilizing, pest control, and trouble shooting
• Working with researchers to pilot new plant varieties in Atlanta
• Organizing relations with local food banks to deliver excess produce
• Selling produce as part of charity events
• Organizing with local restaurants “Eat Local” nights where meals are prepared with local produce
• Supporting local gardens at rest homes and schools with knowledge and seedlings
• Discussing technologies such as rain water retention and raised beds
• Keeping rodents out of gardens J
The first kickoff event will be held in June 2013. If you are interested in having more information, please send an email to email@example.com, Scott Jacobs, who can also be reached at 404 222 2402.
Candler Parkers took a big step at a "Charrette Overview" on May 4 toward completing our neighborhood master plan.
Fox Bros. renovations will be complete by later this week. See the Patch article here.
