Iverson Park Playground Installation on September 17 -- Help Wanted!

Sep 7 2011

From Eric Dusenbury:

The friends of Iverson Park will be installing three new pieces of playground equipment on Saturday September 17 starting at 9:00 AM.  Many hands will make for short work so we are encouraging any interested neighbors to join us for the install.  Tasks include digging holes, moving equipment, mixing concrete, and spreading mulch.  In addition to gloves and proper attire, volunteers are encouraged to bring post hole diggers, shovels, rakes, pitch forks, wheel barrows and small tarps for moving mulch, plus a 6' pry bar (if anyone has one). 

Please contact Eric Dusenbury 678/613-2886 or if you are intersted in helping out.

Candler Park Featured on 11 Alive's "Commuter Dude" Segment

Aug 31 2011


After a pickup truck smashed through the front of a Candler Park flower shop, worried neighbors decided enough was enough. They've seen a litany of crashes through the years and have even gotten help from the City. But nothing has seemed to work. So now they're contacting 11Alive's Commuter Dude as their last hope. 

Go here to watch the segment that aired on the local news, and see what Commuter Dude has in store.

Keep an Eye Out for a Candy-Selling Criminal

Aug 28 2011

From Beware...this guy has been spotted in Candler Park too.


Keep and eye out for a young male knocking on doors selling Reeses Peanut Butter Cups from a cardboard box.

The man, who had scruffy facial hair and stands about 5'8" tall, was last seen wearing long black shorts, a tan tee-shirt with a design on it and brightly colored high-top shoes — possibly green.

The man was knocking on doors at 8:20 p.m. on Sinclair Avenue NE in Inman Park rather frantically. He quickly made himself scarce when he realized he was being watched. He was last seen at 8:25 p.m., heading south on Sinclair toward Carmel Avenue NE from Washita Avenue NE.

The Atlanta Police Department responded and is looking for him.

This modus operandi has been used recently by criminals casing houses for burglary in surrounding neighborhoods. The time of day — after dark — and the somewhat frantic and nervous nature of this individual would lead one to believe he is not fundraising for charity.

If you encounter this person please call 911 and do not open your door to strangers.

Mr. Scott is the public safety vice president for the Inman Park Neighborhood Association.

Aug 16 2011

CPNO has a new hospitality program which was spearheaded by Membership Chair Lexa King. And she needs your help!

Here's how it works: We would like to recognize and acknowledge people in Candler Park who have moved into the neighborhood, or who are experiencing a significant life event such as a health challenge, the death of an immediate family member, or the birth of a baby. This is for any residents and business owners within the geographic boundaries known as Candler Park.

Know someone who falls into one of these categories? If so, please email Lexa King with the name, address, and a brief description of the person's circumstance. She will order and arrange the deliver of an item, cost not to exceed $25, to that person.

Gifted items will be purchased from vendors within the Candler Park borders. For instance, floral arrangements from Candler Park Flower Mart, or a gift card from a local restaurant.
