Little Five is known for its network of small businesses, many of which have been there for decades. Here’s a look at some of the businesses that call the eclectic neighborhood home.

Little Five Points looks to improve neighborhood’s ‘bones’

Little Five Points is known for its counterculture vibe and large number of eccentric local businesses. But as the Atlanta neighborhood plans for the future, leaders are looking to the community for help.

“While these eccentricities are integral to Little 5 Points as a great place, its public spaces, streets, sidewalks and parking lots are long overdue for improvements,” a Facebook post from the neighborhood reads.

In an attempt to start the conversation about improving the “bones” of the neighborhood, Little Five will open a mobility study pop-up studio.

While the pop-up is open, neighbors and community members are encouraged to drop by with their ideas.

It’s a chance to discuss topics like: how to improve parking in the area, what sidewalks need replacing, where bike lanes ought to be added and how the neighborhood can be more pedestrian friendly, according to a Facebook post for the pop-up.

Sponsored by the community improvement district, business association and Little Five Points Alliance, the studio will be open February 20-22 at the Little Five Points Arts and Community Center.

There will be interactive planning activities, maps, data and more for residents to weigh in on.
