    A message to our collective communities,


    I will be honest that I have struggled with what words to write in this letter. What can be said when members of our larger community face the pain of being attacked in a place designated for peace and worship? As a community leader, what words could I possibly offer to support those whose brothers and sisters were attacked because of their faith and the color of their skin? Are words of comfort even adequate or appropriate in the face of an evil that assaults our very humanity?

    The entire community of Westview would like to express our deepest condolences to our Muslim neighbors and all who mourn the tragedy in Christchurch, New Zealand. We continue to pray for those who have been lost and our thoughts are with the survivors and family members left to mourn. We know that there are no words to assuage the pain, fear and hurt that you are experiencing. We only hope by standing with you in this moment of pain that the knowledge that you are not alone will make the burden easier to bare. 

    As a community, Westview particularly turns our support towards our neighbors from IMAN Atlanta. You have stood with us in moments of triumph and moments of challenge. During this period we stand with you, pray for you and offer our voices to counter any narrative that would diminish your place or value in our community. 

    For 109 years Westview has witnessed so many social and societal changes. As a community we have also been privileged to serve as an incubator for change agents whose work has been a catalyst for transformation beyond our borders in SW ATL. As a community we condemn any ideology, political movement and philosophy which would seek to diminish, demonize or reduce the humanity of any member of our community. 

    The days ahead will be difficult, nothing that can be said will speed our path towards healing. The narratives that emerge will assault our senses. While this moment is filled with darkness as a community we commit to stand together and shine the light of love until the darkness dissipates.

    In the spirit of ONE community,

    Jason K. Hudgins, WCO President

    As discussed in the Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST Second round of Prioritization & Rebaselining Public Engagement Meetings, the cost to deliver the full scope of the initial program considerably exceeds the funding available from the Renew Atlanta Bond and TSPLOST revenues. Thus, they are working to transparently prioritize and re-baseline the initial program lists to deliver the greatest impact to Atlanta’s above-ground infrastructure and transportation network with the available funds. Through this re-baselining, they engaging us, the stakeholders, to help inform the process.

     

    Everything presented from round 2 meetings can be found in the Prioritization & Rebaselining Round 2 Recap. Please complete the survey, Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST Prioritization & Rebaselining Round 2 Survey and share with as many friends and neighbors as you can.

    Following up with our representatives is a great way to advocate for the community. One of our neighbors kindly shared this sample letter that can be adapted: 

    Email addresses we encourage you to send to:

    aboone@atlantaga.gov
    RenewAtlanta@atlantaga.gov
    AtlantaTSPLOST@atlantaga.gov

    To Council Member Andrea Boone, the Renew Atlanta Bond Program team, and The City of Atlanta TSPLOST Program team,

    I attended the recent Renew Atlanta Prioritization and Rebaselining plan meeting and provided feedback there but want to reiterate my concerns about the current plan and how it impacts Westview and the surrounding neighborhoods. 

    According to the city’s own HIN analysis, the intersections at Cascade Rd and RDA / Donnelly Ave. are among the most dangerous in the city. In just the first two months of 2019, we’ve already had three pedestrian and cyclist deaths, one pedestrian and one cyclist on Cascade and one pedestrian just around the corner on RDA (a dangerous road that also needs Complete Street funding - thank you for prioritizing that project). The current plan to split the Cascade Complete Street project into two phases and to leave the second phase, which addresses one of our city’s most dangerous roadways, incomplete is unacceptable. I understand that Cascade Phase II is one of the more expensive projects on the list but it is also, arguably, the most critical to ensuring more community lives are not lost. 

    I would like to formally submit that the Cascade Rd Phase II Complete Street project be prioritized to Fully Funded under the TSPLOST Prioritization and Rebaselining effort.


    Thank you for working hard to ensure that our communities receive the proper funding they need to remain safe.

    Sincerely,

    Constituent
