Featured Volunteer: Chad
April 22, 2014
Chad purchased his home in Westview in 2009. Since moving to the neighborhood he has been an active volunteer engaged in numerous projects including (but not limited to) working on the neighborhood’s National Register application, coordinating with Trees Atlanta to plant over 300 trees in the neighborhood, repairing and installing signage throughout the neighborhood and helping out with community clean-ups.
Chad’s home is a 1925 Craftsman Bungalow with Tudor Revival detailing. He works as an architectural historian with the Georgia Department of Transportation, and the historic housing stock of Westview is what drew him to the neighborhood. Before living in Westview Chad owned a home in East Atlanta, and he finds similarities between the two neighborhoods – great historic houses, proximity to a neighborhood commercial village, and the same geographic orientation to the city.
