MR-MU Vote at October 20th IPNA Meeting

Hello Inman Park Neighbors:

At the October 20th IPNA meeting, we will be discussing and voting on the proposed MR-MU Zoning. There have been a number of changes to the legislation and I have attached an update on the process and a breakdown of the significant changes. I am attaching a revised presentation that incorporates these changes as well as the ordinance that clearly shows the changes to the ordinance from last month and today.

In an effort to keep the meeting from running too long, I recommend that everyone read the breakdown, the actual ordinance, review the presentation and formulate your questions. All questions will be typed into the chat feature and will be answered in order. We will then discuss each section of the changes and take a vote on each section. We will utilize the hand raise function for all discussion. Each person will have 2 minutes to provide feedback.

Fact Sheet & Amended Ordinance

Hello neighbors:

As many of you may know, the City of Atlanta’s Department of Planning along with Councilman Amir Farokhi, have introduced three pieces of legislation and of those three, two are “text amendments” to the existing zoning code that propose rezoning properties located within a half mile of the MARTA from residential (R-4, R4-A, and R-5) to MR-MU (Mixed Residential-Multi-Family). This is proposed across the city and for the last two months, there has been discussions at the NPU’s and in the neighborhoods regarding what the impact of these text amendments will be on our neighborhoods. The original proposed text amendments have been revised and the documents attached represent those changes. Attached is the revised legislation, the map for the Inman Park properties that will be impacted, as well as a very user-friendly fact sheet that outlines the changes and why the city feels these changes are important.

Filming Notification Letter

Incoming Board Member Bios

VP of Security: Tom Baldwin

Hello Inman Park Neighbors.  I am honored to have been nominated for the position of VP of Public Safety.  Inman Park has been my home for over 23 years, living the entire time on Waddell St.  I am excited about contributing once again to this neighborhood I love.  I've been active in the past with Festival (I was "Beer General" years ago) and I've also been active with outreach efforts at our neighborhood church, Inman Park United Methodist. This is my first time serving IPNA as a board member and Public Safety is the one I've had in mind should the time be right and the opportunity there.  It looks like that time is now.  I might even pull in my college age kids (22 and 20) to help out from time to time.  I look forward to serving this great neighborhood.

Inman Park Festival and WRFG - Segment 1 - LISTEN NOW!

Hello neighbors,
In partnership with WRFG, Inman Park Festival has begun a monthly interview series focusing on the history of Festival and Inman Park.
In this first segment, longtime neighbor Cathy Bradshaw (Hurt Street) discusses the rise and fall and rise of Inman Park and how banks not giving loans to homeowners led to the very first Festival in 1972.  Do you know the home where the first meeting took place?
We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed creating!
If you have ideas for future segments or would like to hear more about a topic discussed in this segment, please let us know.
A great big THANK YOU to WRFG, Station Manager Aisha Hardimon, Board Chair Kathleen Cooley, and neighbor Anna McEntee for making this happen!
