At the August CPNO membership meeting, officials from Marta presented to the neighborhood an overview of the mixed residential commercial project planned for the south side of the Edgewood/CP Marta station. Notes from the presentation will be covered in the August membership meeting minutes, but we wanted to make our members aware of a Rezoning Work Session with Marta officials and the developer, Columbia Ventures.

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.

Neighborhood Watch Organizing Meeting Held in Candler Park

Aug 13 2014
Posted for Russell Miller, Public Safety Officer
The Candler Park Neighborhood Watch had its first organizing meeting Wednesday 8/13. Zone 6 Inspector Crystal Hines and Interim Director Lamar Hester attended the meeting which was held at the pavilion in Candler Park . A solid group of Candler Park residents were in attendance to give their support and volunteer their time to being leaders in this revived effort.  Inspector Hines laid out the steps Candler Park needs to take to become officially recognized by the City of Atlanta as a neighborhood watch, and congratulated us on taking the critical first ones.  Our next actions will be to determine who will be the official Neighborhood Watch coordinators, block/zone captains and all the neighbors who are willing to be a part.  The next meeting is tentatively scheduled for the last Wednesday in September location TBD. 

Zaid Duwayri: our new CPNO communications officer

Aug 12 2014
I'm very pleased to announce that Zaid Duwayri has agreed to serve as communications officer, filling a two-month vacancy on CPNO's Board of Directors.
Two years ago, Zaid, his wife Dima, and their boys Farris, 7, and Laith, 3, moved from Winter Park, Fla., to Candler Park — Candler Park Drive to be exact. Farris is a second grader at Mary Lin, and Laith goes to Georgia Tech…. the daycare at Georgia Tech. Dima works in Georgia Tech's College of Engineering.
Zaid has computer programming background and is a consultant by profession, with strong experience in corporate communications. As such, he's very familiar with publishing platforms, social media and analytics — all great qualities for a CPNO communications officer.
Another key quality: Zaid can't say enough times that he loves the neighborhood. We look forward to introducing him at Monday's Members Meeting, and to working with him as we continue to improve the ways that CPNO informs our neighbors and promotes our neighborhood.
Zaid expressed his interest in serving following the July Board Meeting. He then met with CPNO Secretary Bonnie Palter, who led the search for a new communications officer. Monday night, after board members pummeled Zaid with questions and he asked a few of his own, we unanimously voted to appoint him to fill out the term.
