IPNA Jan Meeting Agenda-The meeting is canceled due to weather

This month's IPNA meeting will be a very important one, though not for the reason most of us would have anticipated.  We will NOT be voting on the application to rezone the Villa de Grip parcels from residential to commercial.  We will, however, be hearing from Scott Ball and Jeff Rader who have been working on a 10-year update to the report on the Moreland Avenue Corridor component of the Livable Centers Initiative.  That's a whole lot of jargon.  The update and report would serve as a plan for the Moreland Ave. corridor, which includes not only traffic and safety management along Moreland Ave. (which are critical in and of themselves) but also planning for development and zoning of parcels within the corridor, such as Bass Field.  A draft of the report can be found  here.
If possible, please plan to attend and participate in this important discussion. 
We will also vote on Ro Lawson as Board Secretary, Vote on 802 Lake Ave.- Type III COA for additions to basement of home and a change of agent liquor license for Kimmie's Bistro. Read full agenda.

Neighborhood Meeting: Jenkins Metal Redevelopment

The developers of the Jenkins Metals site, Thrive Homes, has scheduled a meeting for the neighborhood to learn of and discuss its plans.  
The meeting will be at Little 5 Points Community Center on Monday November 13th at 6:30pm.
This site is crucially important.  Its proximity to the Beltline means that what gets developed there will influence how we all experience that vital feature of our neighborhood.  The site also occupies a defining piece of geography.  It defines the transition from the denser mixed commercial/residential developments that exist along the Beltline corridor (Krog Street Market, the Alexan, etc.) to the quieter and less dense residential areas.  What ends up being built here will have a significant impact on the character of our neighborhood.  If you can, please plan to attend the meeting.
