Enota Place Park Petition – Please HELP the Westview Community

Please take a moment to review our petition, sign and share.
Here are some other ways to help:
What We Need You to Do (do some or all, just make sure to do at least one!)
1. Most Important: Come to the August 19th Meeting, 6 pm at Atlanta City Hall: We all need to be there and bring someone with us. Please sign-up to speak.  If for some reason you can’t make it, make sure someone goes in your place. Brian Hooker from the Atlanta BeltLine told me last week that 610 people showed up at the last Atlanta City Council meeting to protest a Walmart being built in Southeast Atlanta. He then asked me how many people from Southwest Atlanta would be coming out.  Showing up with 20 people aint’ going to cut it this time. We need at least 100 people there.2. Sign the paper or online petition (http://chn.ge/13fDQ1l), and ask your friends to do the same. The paper petition should be coming around if we get enough people to help pass it out. They don’t have to live in Westview to support us. If they live in the city, make sure they include their address and district when signing the petition so their City Council representative knows they support this vote.

3. Write a letter of support for the ordinance and send it to the Atlanta City Council by Friday.  See a form letter you can use attached, feel free to adjust. City Council addresses:

4. Circulate the paper petition on your street. See attached. Give all petitions to Ayana by Sunday.5.Call and email the 1) your City Council Member and 2) the City Council members on the Community Development & Human Resources Committee. This is the committee who introduced the legislation. Ask for a “Yes” vote on this ordinance. Ask for their support in getting it passed. I.e. – we are asking them to do work behind the scenes to get their legislation passed.
City Council Members on the committee:

Joyce Sheperd (Chair, Comm Dev. & HR Committee Member) Phone: 404-330-6053
Cleta Winslow (Comm Dev. & HR Committee Member) 404-330-6047
Ivory Young (Comm Dev. & HR Committee Member) – 404-330-6046
Kwanzaa Hall (Comm Dev. & HR Committee Member) 404-330-6038
Lamar Willis (Comm Dev. & HR Committee Member) 404-333-6041
Basic Details
– Enota Park is the only new construction BeltLine park in our area. It was slated to be one of the first BeltLine parks built, but hasn’t in part because the City of Atlanta cannot acquire the property for various reasons including absentee property owners.
– The particular parcels impacted by this ordinance have no houses. It is vacant land adjacent to the Atlanta BeltLine corridor near Langhorn and I-20.
-The seven ordinances up for vote on Monday, August 19, will allow the city to acquire seven parcels by condemnation. The attached map shows the parcels in burgundy.
– Enota Park is part of the Subarea 1 Atlanta BeltLine Master Plan created with the input of many district residents and community stakeholders. It is also part of the Westview Master plan developed by community residents and approved by the city.
-The City of Atlanta and the Atlanta BeltLine have been working for a number of years to secure the land needed to build Enota Park.
