Clifton Corridor Transit MARTA Meetings

Marta has new community engagement dates this week for the Clifton Corridor high capacity transit alternatives:

In person Mon Feb 13 6:30pm
Virtual Thurs Feb 16 6:30pm
Open House Sat Feb18 10am

The previous locally preferred alternative (LPA) along CSX was a cut and cover tunnel with Light Rail from Cheshire Bridge to Briarcliff/Sage Hill, along with a walking trail and a park as a concession for right of way take from Arnold Road residences. This was before shared right of way options with CSX were available.

New options proposed include surface level shared CSX right-of-way; however, those would also be surface level Lenox Rd crossings. Register now at connectclifton.com

Toll Brothers Milledge Place Project Meeting – May 28

The Toll Bros. Milledge Place Project will be on the agenda for the Tuesday, May 28 Board of Commissioners Meeting.  The meeting will be at Maloof Auditorium 1300 Commerce Drive, Decatur, starting at 6:30pm.  Please attend if you are available.

This item is early on the agenda so it will come up quickly and we'll be done. It's good to arrive early to get the handout.

It is absolutely essential that we have a large turnout to voice our opinions for this project.  All of the earlier meetings lead to trying to get a Zoning Decision at this meeting that is favorable to us!  There will be stickers and/or colored cards available at the entrance to identify neighborhood(s) attendees to the Commissioners.  Commissioner Rader has shown he is willing to listen when his constituents are present.

Thanks and See You There,
Woodland Hills Neighborhood Association
