Gulch Town Hall Info

District 2 Friends and Neighbors, 

I will be hosting a special District 2 Town Hall meeting this Tuesday, October 30th at the Loudermilk Center (40 Courtland St. NE 30303) from 7-8:30PM. The sole item on the agenda will be the proposed "Gulch" development downtown. All constituents are welcome!  

I have received many emails and had countless conversations about this issue. As the proposed deal is complex and has changed several times over the last couple months, I thought it might be helpful for residents to have time to learn the current status, ask questions, and provide feedback.

I will do my best to present the objective facts related to the proposal, including the chief arguments from both sides. I'll be inviting representatives from CIM Group, the prospective developer, to answer questions as well. We'll then open things up to a thoughtful, informal Q&A. I hope to see you all there. See additional information below. 

The Gulch
A Quick Overview

The "Gulch" is a 40-acre area Downtown stretching from the Five Points Marta station to Mercedes-Benz stadium. Today, the Gulch lies vacant. It generates no tax revenue and impedes neighborhood or urban connectivity Downtown.

A developer, CIM Group, has been in negotiations with the City to build on the land, with government financial support.



 


As you know, a healthy debate has ensued over the last two months with the details of the deal evolving over time. There seems to be a general consensus that developing the Gulch would be good for Atlanta. Yet, there is concern whether the benefits warrant the size of public investment. The question is whether the deal, in its current form, is the best path forward. 

I look forward to a thoughtful discussion.

Logistics
Getting to the Loudermilk Center

The Center is a block away from the Atlanta Streetcar's Hurt Park and Auburn at Piedmont stops. It is served by a number of MARTA bus routes, including routes 3 and 816. It is also walking distance from the Peachtree Center and Five Points MARTA rail stations. There is a parking deck at the venue, which will validate.

Farewell to Oreon Mann

Oreon MannOreon Mann's Memorial Service Details  

It will be on Tuesday, September 4 at 6 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta.  You may think that you know where this church is located but you need to know that they have moved out of their previous building as of three weeks ago.  They are now in an office building at 1190 West Druid Hills Drive NE, #150, Atlanta, GA 30329.  GPS should take you to the correct place but, just in case, take I-85 to North Druid Hills Road exit and turn left.  Go past the Salvation Army church and turn left at the McDonald’s.  Do not go as far as Buford Highway.  There will be a short reception immediately following the service.

Claudia has asked that no flowers be sent.  They would prefer that you make a donation to the charity of your choice.  You should tell the charity to send the acknowledgment to Claudia Ammann at 8746 South 1405 West, West Jordan, UT  84088.  They would also be happy to receive letters and cards at that same address.

John Lewis Freedom Parkway

The City of Atlanta and the Atlanta City Council have voted to rename Freedom Parkway "John Lewis Freedom Parkway" and to dedicate a Freedom Riders Play Space in the park in honor of U.S. Congressman John Lewis. Atlanta City Council Member, Andre Dickens, headed up the effort that was unanimously supported by the Inman Park Neighborhood Association several months ago. The dedication ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018 in the 600 block of Barnett Street, N.E. behind Moe’s Southwest Grill. The new street signage unveiling will take place at the southeast corner of Freedom Parkway and Ponce de Leon Avenue. In a press release from the city, it stated "In March 2017, the Atlanta City Council unanimously passed a resolution authored by Councilmember Andre Dickens and cosponsored by all council members to create a Task Force to determine an appropriate manner in which to honor U.S. Congressman John Lewis, such as renaming a street or naming or dedicating a public place such as a building, plaza, park or other similar public place. It was determined after public deliberation and input that Freedom Parkway should be renamed to honor the Congressman and Civil Rights leader who has dedicated his life to fighting for the freedom and humanity of others."

Full Press Release below. 

All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
