Rockefeller Foundation chooses Atlanta

Postby odellhorne » Mar 9th, 2017, 11:55 pm

100 Resilient Cities - Pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation (100RC) helps cities around the world become more resilient to social, economic, and physical challenges that are a growing part of the 21st century. 100RC provides this assistance through: funding for a Chief Resilience Officer in each of our cities who will lead the resilience efforts; resources for drafting a resilience strategy; access to private sector, public sector, academic, and NGO resilience tools; and membership in a global network of peer cities to share best practices and challenges.

The City of Atlanta was chosen as one of the 100 Resilient Cities from more than 325 applicants, spanning more than 90 countries across six continents, and was selected on the basis of the city's willingness, ability, and need to become resilient in the face of future challenges.

Public meetings will be held on:

Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 10:00 am to noon
Villages of Carver Family YMCA
1600 Pryor Road, SW
Atlanta, GA 30315

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
MARTA Headquarters (Bid Room)
2424 Piedmont Road, NE
Atlanta, GA 30324

Atlanta Police wanted me to let everyone in the neighborhood who has a security camera(s) that is aimed in the "right of way" know to check your camera(s) for any suspicious activity after the murder of Yung Mazi on Sunday, August 6, 2017 at 8:55 pm.

If you see suspicious activity on your security camera(s), please contact Investigator Casey at 404-546-5531 or tjlewis@atlantaga.gov

MARTA Bus Route 24

Postby odellhorne » Sep 25th, 2017, 6:54 pm

Route 24: Hosea L Williams Drive / McAfee Road:

It is proposed that Route 24 be adjusted to provide local service between Glenwood Road and Indian Creek Station. From Glenwood Road, Route 24 is proposed to travel via Austin Drive, Redwing Circle, Covington Highway, Indian Creek Drive and Durham Park Road to Indian Creek Station. Route 24 would no longer operate via I-285. The new service alignment is proposed to operate at 40-minute weekday peak frequency and 60-minute frequency at all other times, Monday through Sunday. This new service alignment is based on recommendations from the Comprehensive Operations Analysis.
