Building a community one step at a time
Join Us: COMMUNITY GARDEN READY TO GROW
We're ready to open our community garden across from the Armand Green Space. We just need you!
The new irrigation system was installed in May 2018, thanks to a generous $2,000 grant from the City of Atlanta and Neighborhood Planning Unit F. We have area enough for 21 plots and have already built eight raised beds and other shared amenities. A one-year membership is $200.
On March 2 a group of about 10 neighbors got together to set up the first of eight raised beds. Planting will begin in March and April. After that, it’s up to us what we do with this fantastic space — open to all!
You may recall this is the site of a former home, and there is a remainder of a patio and outdoor grill that we’d like to use for public space. We're also pricing out the installation of a metal grate so the outdoor grill will be functional at this site again soon.
C'mon, let's get growing!

Now Underway: NEW NEIGHBORHOOD SIGNAGE
The entrance to our community is the first and last impression that prospective residents and visitors get of your neighborhood. Our new community pillars will welcome our residents and their guests.
As of Winter 2019, we’ve set aside funds for the past two years to pay for the project. We also had members vote on sign designs, and we’ve secured legal support to help us with city permits, contracts, property deeds and the like.
Next up: Our neighbor Scott Webb has stepped forward to lead our neighborhood sign committee and put plans into action! He’ll be leading our efforts to reach out to property owners for discussion about sign placement and pull a committee together to handle things such as sign construction, city permitting and the like. More to come!

MEADOW LOOP TRAIL RESTORATION
LMM was awarded a $1000 grant from the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta to fund our plantings for the Milkweeds for Monarchs Project along the Meadow Loop Trail. Our group of 30 neighborhood volunteers, along with our partner, the South Fork Conservancy, planted over 200 native plants in the Meadow.
MARTA Clifton Corridor Transit Initiative
The Clifton Corridor Transit Initiative is MARTA’s proposed light rail line linking the Lindbergh and Avondale Stations. The light rail line will provide service to one of the region’s most congested areas – and biggest job centers – serving Emory University, Emory Hospital, the Centers for Disease Control, Children’s Healthcare, and Veteran’s Administration Hospital.
