2011 Comprehensive Development Plan Workshop

2011 CDP Workshop

Members of the Westview neighborhood joined together with residents from Neighborhood Planning Unit’s T, S, and V for the “Intown South” workshop of the City of Atlanta’s 2011 Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP). Georgia law requires a plan to be made every 3-5 years, and looks at the development of the city for the next 20 years.

In this first meeting (out of 3 meetings total) the goal was to come up with issues and opportunities in our neighborhoods, and the city as a whole.

Rogers Avenue Trees Atlanta Planting

Rogers Avenue Trees

Volunteers both from inside and outside of the neighborhood came to plant trees along the landscape strips and front yards.

On Saturday, June 26th, the Westview neighborhood celebrated its 100th birthday. The Westview Centennial Celebration took place at KIPP STRIVE Academy, the new charter middle school next to the BeltLine.

The day’s activities started with a 5K sponsored by the BeltLine, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the Westview portion of the BeltLine Model Mile.

The celebrations continued with music by RnB band In The Pocket, house music by DJs Ryze, Drew, and Ramon Rawsoul, puppet shows and storytelling for young and old, vendors selling organic soaps, prints and more, and some friendly rivalry between the grill-off contestants over who would win the public’s heart for their chicken and rib recipes.

Additionally, the Westview Community Organization would like to thank the following people for making the Westview Centennial Celebration happen:

2009 Fall Clean-Up

Fall Clean-Up Photos

This Saturday the Westview Community Organization partnered up with KIPP STRIVE Academy to clean and beautify quadrant one of Westview – Lucile Avenue, Enota Place, Altoona Place, Mathewson Place, Inman Street, and Wellington Street. One of the main battles of the community are vacant overgrown houses owned by banks or negligent investors. The properties become unsightly and attract illegal dumping. In an effort to beautify the neighborhood and show that this activity is not acceptable in Westview neighbors and students cleaned up trash, hauled away furniture, mowed lawns, and trimmed landscape strips. As a reward for all the hard work lunch was provided by Church’s Chicken. Westview would also like to thank neighbors from West End that came to out to help.

Additional photos can be viewed at Westview’s Facebook group.

Sidewalk and Road Improvements

Sidewalk and roadway improvements continue in Westview. The project was initiated by the Westview Development Committee and has been funded through the Quality of Life bond thanks to the help of Councilmember CT Martin.

East Ontario’s sidewalks are nearly complete and work has begun on West Ontario. West Ontario will have a widened sidewalk on the western side of the street, which will preserve the large old trees and assist in traffic calming. Additionally East Ontario and some parts of Ontario and Willard have been repaved.
