Did we sleep on Washington Park???

I know I did! I have taken a tour through the community a few weeks ago and was very impressed by what I saw. The leadership within the association, and residents are a force making positive changes and a noticeable impact.

NPU-T held their executive committee meeting yesterday. The meeting was hosted by Booker T. Washington Community Association and the venue selected was the Washington Park Natatorium (102 Ollie Street NW Atlanta, GA 30314)
I must say, almost embarrassingly, I have never been to their Natatorium. The Natatorium was created 4year ago, and it’s AMAZING! They hold night swimming lessons in two gigantic heated lap pools. The facility is huge-CLEAN and inviting! I’m sorry I didn’t take advantage of the offer to swim before the meeting began- but I’ll be back. I plan to get a family membership! My girls will LOVE year round swimming in such a beautiful facility, with nice art work! Take a look- I know, my pictures are horrible-lol hey, I’m a Realtor, not a Photographer:

Also- the homes are certainly worth viewing. Add this city neighborhood to your list. Zip 30314. Here are some homes I saw on my search.

Beltline design: ‘A lack of emphasis on quality’

YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Check out this article: READ ME

As you know, I’ve been trying to follow the Beltline closely. One, because I live within a block away from the proposed path here in the West End, and two, many of my clients are moving to the West End/ Westview area because of it.

Although, there are MANY resources, and information on the subject, several website, news articles, study groups, focus groups- the list just goes on and on…..BUT, how could one keep up? This is why I have volunteered for the door- door campaign with the Beltline Partnership. Everyone does not have the luxury of being in a network with others pooling information- so during our door-door sweep, we hope to inform, educate and in some cases make aware for the first time -residents about the Beltline. This is a very important matter that will change and shape neighborhoods. YOU need to be aware of this and if possible- attend a meeting to have input on this.

As the NPU-T , Parks Recreation and Cultural Affairs committee obtain further informtion, I’ll post it. We has a committee specifically for the Beltline. So if you are a bit confused, or don’t know how to join or how to be apart of the discussions, please contact me and I will direct you to the appropriate contact within Neighborhood Planning Unit T…I’m sure we can use your help within our committee and bring you up to speed 🙂
