    Help Clean Up Vines In Westview


    In January we featured an article on the impact of English Ivy and our trees -- English Ivy suffocates the trees and with the right wind this will cause our tress to fall over. 


    Westview Vine Crew wants to get out there and clean up the vines starting at the Community Garden lot (1439 S. Gordon) and then they will make their way toward Willard Ave. in the alley between S. Gordon St. and Stokes Ave. The Westview Vine Crew will be demonstrating various techniques. Please join the fun!


    WHAT TO WEAR: 

    We encourage you to wear boots / tough work shoes, thick jeans / pants, and work gloves. 

    WHAT TO BRING: 

    If you have, please bring your chainsaw, hatchet, loppers, machetes, battery powered reciprocating saws (sawzalls), or any other tools you can use to cut these vines!

    Please complete the survey as this will directly effect our neighborhood: 

    https://renewatlantabond.com/round-1-2nd-survey/

    Survey is due Thursday February 7th 2019

    BACKGROUND ON TSPLOST SURVEY:

    The Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST programs, launched in 2015 and 2016, were created to address the $1B+ infrastructure backlog facing the city. TSPLOST is currently facing the challenge to deliver on all projects as the cost to deliver the full scope of the initial program considerably exceeds the funding available from the Renew Atlanta Bond and TSPLOST revenues.

    For more background visit the Renew Atlanta website: https://renewatlantabond.com/prioritization/

    WCO representative attending the TSPLOST initial meeting at Grady High, and was presented with 3 scenarios. Each scenario had different funding allocated to different projects. There was a breakout session to further discuss the scenarios. Each group came to a consensus on which scenario they preferred (a tally was taken) and in that scenario each person were to come up with their top 3 projects, and also 2 wish list projects.

    IMPACTS TO WESTVIEW:

    On the list of projects were Cascade Ave Phase 2 (Complete Streets), RDA (Complete Streets) and Cascade Ave TCC (Transportation Connection Corridor).

    • RDA is currently listed as "fully funded" meaning regardless of what scenario they go with ultimately, RDA will still be completed.
    • Cascade Ave Phase 2 was listed as "Design Only". It was shared that projects listed as design only were NOT guaranteed to be completed and would ONLY be completed through their current design stage (so if it is in conceptual design - that's where it will end) until additional funding is secured.

    Our representative, Louis Ali, did raise the concern regarding the recent fatalities within Westview. Both were within less than 1 month's time frame and urged the session leaders to reconsider their priorities.

    Slutty Vegan has their grand opening on Sunday, January 13th 2019. We are excited to welcome this innovative concept to the community! Here is info based on facts as we have them right now:

    • The restaurant announced plans to close access to E. Ontario from RDA. The NPU did not approve this and we have no evidence of a city permit. Kiyomi and I have asked for this to be produced or for plans to be adjusted. If the road is closed residents will have access via StokesAve. If permitting is correct for a closure we have given the expectation that the restaurant communicate with the residents of E. Ontario.

    • Expect this to be a big opening! There will be increased traffic around Westview. We have asked the team at SV to work to keep parking and traffic in the Flats and not on the adjacent residential streets.
    • A formal request was made to ensure that the line for the restaurant runs down RDA towards the Westview Corner Grocery and not down E. Ontario. Thanks to Patrick and Steffi and the team at the grocery for opening their parking lot to help make this happen.

    • Slutty Vegan is very popular and I would expect there to be a period of adjustment as we get used to them and vice versa. I would encourage the community to exercise patience. Please send any feed back to my email President@westviewstlanta.org I’ll compile feedback and share it with Kiyomi the President of the Retail Association in an effort to coordinate helping the restaurant adjust plans

    • Enjoy the burgers if you are lucky enough to get one before they sell out!
