Go West! Westview/ West End Neighborhood Day: DEC 12th

This year West End and Westview have teamed up to bring you a grand day of celebrations and activities to kick off the holiday season. All events are open to the general public. If you haven’t ever ventured out to the Westside of Atlanta this is your chance to GO WEST!

The day will benefit The Atlanta BeltLine, which is a $2.8 billion redevelopment project that will shape the way Atlanta grows over the next 25 years and beyond. The project proposes a network of public parks, multi-use trails and transit along a historic railroad corridor circling downtown and connecting many neighborhoods directly to each other by streetcar or light rail.

ACTIVITY LINE-UP:

9:30am – 5K Walk-A-Thon Benefit for KIPP STRIVE Academy: Rain or shine. Get your legs on; get your exercise before the parties later. 5K = three miles and takes about one hour. Meet at KIPP STRIVE, 1444 Lucile Avenue – the former JC Harris Elementary School in Westview. To register for the walk or to help with planning please contact Scott Shepherd at (404) 277-5970.

12:00pm – BeltLine Trail Ground Breaking Ceremony: Meet at Muse Street and Lucile Avenue at high noon to celebrate the ground breaking for the next leg of the BeltLine Trail. Once complete, the trail will connect Rose Circle Park with the Westview Cemetery and add more green space to the community. Free giveaways from the BeltLine. Walk-A-Thon ends at the ground breaking site. For more information or to help with planning please contact Patrick Berry at (404) 755-1255.

12:15pm – Westview Holiday Party at Fire Station Number 17: Immediately after the Beltline Ground Breaking Ceremony join the Westview Community Organization and the firefighters for a traditional holiday lunch at Fire Station 17, 1489 R.D. Abernathy Boulevard. Please bring a dish to share. For more information or to help with planning please contact Ayana Gabriel at (404) 345-3209. 

7:00-11:00pm – Cocktail Party and Hord’Oeuvres at the Hammonds House: Join West End, Westview & West End Merchants Coalition for a Gala to celebrate our historic shared past, our delightful present and our fantastic future. To our resident guests, please reach out to friends in other neighborhoods that are looking to live in or buy in our neighborhood. The holiday party will be a great introduction to the area by meeting our greatest asset: our friends and neighbors. The party is pot luck Hor d’Oeuvres with live music. In lieu of a dish, a small donation is suggested. This is a benefit for the community. For more information or to help with planning please contact Carl Nes at (404) 755-2000.

Frequently Asked Questions Homebuyer Tax Credit Changes 

A message from the Atlanta Board of REALTORS:

Last week, REALTORS® scored a major public policy victory when the U.S. Congress voted to extend and expand the homebuyer tax credit in order to continue stimulating the housing sector of the economy.

The Senate voted 98-0 and the House voted 403-12 on legislation that includes the extension and expansion of the credit. President Obama signed the legislation into law on Friday.

Thank you for making this victory happen. 30% of Georgia REALTORS® responded to NAR’s Call for Action. This grassroots action made a big difference in getting this legislation passed. This is a great victory for the economy, for homebuyers, and for all of us in real estate. Your commitment and involvement on this issue is greatly appreciated
