An updated draft on the Candler Park Draft Master Plan has now been published at the master plan website. Your comments on this draft — the second published version — are welcome and encouraged.
Here’s the remaining schedule for master plan’s comment and approval process:
- Now-July 15: More feedback welcome on master plan feedback page at candlerparkmasterplan.com.
- July 15 (CPNO members’ meeting): Final CPNO discussion of draft plan (lead planner Aaron Fortner will field questions and comments)
- July 26 – final draft to be published at candlerparkmasterplan.com
- August 19 (CPNO members’ meeting) – CPNO vote on master plan final draft
We’re shooting for CPNO approval in August so that City Council and Atlanta’s city planners would have time in this fall to approve the plan. That puts the neighborhood in a better position to seek funding for some of our priorities via the city’s “Quality of Life” bond issue, which will be considered early next year.
Our planners have worked hard to gather broad and deep input over the last three months through three community meetings, three evenings of roundtable discussions, some 30 “focus” discussion (with individuals or small groups) and more than 100 separate pieces of individual feedback. Aaron also briefed neighbors at the June 17 meeting.
Aaron's hopeful that the draft accurately reflects what neighbors’ sentiments and best ideas. There are still opportunities to comment. But we urge you to offer up any concerns as quickly as possible.
