Candler Park Legacy Markers

Aug 23 2014

Many thanks to the volunteers who helped install the Legacy Markers this morning! Here's a group photo.

Here's an excerpt from last month's Messenger about this effort..

The Early Edgewood-Candler Park BiRacial History Project has been awarded two grants to help replace two legacy markers that were damaged over the last few months in separate incidents.
 Now, it’s up to Candler Parkers to chip in with a little volunteerism to install the updated signs. Park Pride is providing a “Small Change” grant of $1,800, and the Atlanta Mayor’s Office has offered up a $1,000 “Love Your Block” grant. The funds should cover the anticipated expenses to replace both damaged markers. 
 Both grants require a neighborhood volunteering component, and CPNO isn’t alone in agreeing to participate. Among the others who’ve volunteered to help are Friends of Candler Park, the Mary Lin principal’s office, the pastor at Antioch East Baptist Church, the First Existentialist Congregation Social Justice Guild, Pimsler Hoss Architects and Small Carpenters at Large.

How to help CPNO's push for road, crosswalk and sidewalk improvements

Aug 17 2014

Posted on behalf of Master Plan Coordinating Committee

Mayor Kasim Reed has announced plans for a $250 million infrastructure bond referendum, likely to be held in March. The timing is good for CP residents because the Master Plan we completed last fall includes ideas to improve our infrastructure, and because last month the neighborhood identified 28 Master Plan recommendations as priorities.

After discussing our ideas with city officials and scrutinizing the criteria for projects to be funded by the bonds, we’d like to enlist your help in communicating nine neighborhood priorities to key city officials. Seven of the items are internal to Candler Park:

Monday CPNO meeting to focus on big MARTA project

Aug 14 2014
MARTA officials will brief us at Monday's CPNO Meeting on the mixed-used, transit-oriented development the transit agency is planning for the Edgewood side of the Edgewood/Candler Park MARTA Station.
The project has been anticipated for several years. But MARTA finally selected a developer in July, expects to rezone the Edgewood parking lots this fall, and plans to break ground next year. It's time now for Candler Park and our neighbors in Edgewood to offer our input.
