Grant Park Gateway Project meeting rescheduled

City Council Member Carla Smith has asked the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs for a public community meeting regarding details of the Grant Park Gateway Project. The meeting originally slated for Sept. 30, has been rescheduled to 11 a.m. Oct. 14 at Georgia Hill Community Center, 250 Georgia Ave. SE. It was changed in observance of Yom Kippur.

After a City Council meeting last month, Smith issued this statement:

“As you may know, the Tree Commission ruled in favor of the city last night. However, I remain committed to forging a solution that is a win for the concerned neighbors, the project and Grant Park. I am focused on facilitating productive conversations between the neighbors, their lawyers, the Parks Department and the city’s legal team,” she wrote adding, “As always, please feel free to call or email me: 404-330-6039; csmith@atlantaga.gov. You can also email parking deck-related questions to GPGateway@atlantaga.gov.”

Questions may be submited in advance by email to DPRCA at gpgateway@atlantaga.gov, and copy Carla Smith at csmith@atlantaga.gov.
