**West End/Ashview Heights Saturday July 9th Home tour**

Good day Community-Neighbors and Realtor Friends:

Please help us continue to revitalize one of NPU-T’s great communities. Ashview Heights Community Association has had a series of  “Committed to Community” weekends which have included neighborhood clean-ups, boarding vacant houses, mowing vacant lots, and working with the youths of MA Jones to paint street “greeting” signs throughout the neighborhood.

It is a great desire for me to have all neighborhoods with NPU-T thriving, safe and known for their unique character. We need your help to make this a success! Please donate any time you have and take an hour this weekend to walk through the neighborhood and see the difference.

In an effort to attract more visitors, this weekend, Ashview Heights is having an “Open House” tour Saturday 1-4PM. This event will feature both homes for sale and currently occupied by the many new residents committed to this process. The tour guides are Ashview Heights residents and Shaylah Hamilton of Keller Williams. This is a FREE event!

Have a snack, talk with the association president and learn more about the neighborhood/association plans.

Please see the attached flyer and spread the word.  Ashview Heights Open House Tour

This is a great opportunity for agents to explore another hidden gem in Atlanta –homes as low as $25K for your buyers!

 

 

Westview Summer Solstice (June 25th) Update!

Did you know that there is a CVC Urban Farm right here in Southwest Atlanta?

Formed as part of NPU-T’s Community Food Project, the Atwood Community Gardens (http://www.nextstepsyep.org) has been located in the Beecher-Donnelly (http://www.beecherdonnelly.com/) neighborhood since 2008. With the support of many southwest Atlanta residents and friends, the urban farm has initiated an agricultural training program that uses gardening to introduce students to careers in STEM.
