On Tuesday, August 5, 2014, Westview community organizations joined hundreds of other neighborhood organizations across the country for National Night Out, a public safety awareness event.

The West End Coalition held its annual event at the intersection of Mathewson and Greenwich with food, music, and socializing. In the meanwhile the Westview Community Organization held its annual event at the intersection of South Olympian and Waters with food and an art auction held by the children that participated in the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) summer camp. Firefighters, police, and elected officials dropped by to celebrate the evening with neighbors.

Westview Art On The BeltLine

Art on the BeltLine

The Atlanta BeltLine is well known for its rail, trail and park components, but it also has a different, fun, and perhaps lesser known aspect to it – art! In anticipation of the upcoming “Art on the Atlanta BeltLine” exhibit, which will be running officially from September through November, many art pieces have popped up along the Westview BeltLine corridor. Some artists were even spotted in action as they were installing their pieces. Until you can check the work out for yourself take a sneak peak at what we found!

National Night Out

On one of the possibly most sweltering days of the year the Westview Community Organization held the annual National Night Out event on Rogers Avenue. Young and old came together to socialize on the street with police officers and city officials while munching on hot dogs and cooling down with drinks. An added bonus for the kids was games and school supplies!

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.
