Have you had enough rain? In five years we have never had a rain out. We had three this year. It is now time to redo the Movie Nights that have been rained out. So here is our updated schedule.
- August 30 Frozen the Sing Along
- September 6th Remember the Titans
- September 13 Lego Movie
- September 20 Karate Kid
Movie night festivities start at 7:00ish and the feature presentation will go on as soon as it gets dark enough-in front of the pool house.
In the event of a rainy day check our web site www.friendsofCandlerPark.org. Rain days are typically the following weekend. You will want to get there early for the best spot! Once again, well-behaved dogs on a leash are welcome. Bring your own coolers but be aware that glass containers or bottles are strictly forbidden in city parks. The Candler Park Movie Night is produced by Park Pride/Friends of Candler Park. Also, with help from Epworth Methodist/ Clifton House. Thanks to our sponsors Front Page News, Tijuana Garage, Candler Park Market, Uncle Maddio’s Pizza and most of all our Presenting Sponsor, the Candler Park Neighborhood Organization.
Please see my report from the July NPU-N meeting in the recent Messenger, page 15.
Our August agenda contains consideration of at least six city-wide ordinances and a new Lake Claire Park Plan. More details on all have been posted on the Message Board.

Many thanks to the volunteers who helped install the Legacy Markers this morning! Here's a group photo.
Here's an excerpt from last month's Messenger about this effort..
The Early Edgewood-Candler Park BiRacial History Project has been awarded two grants to help replace two legacy markers that were damaged over the last few months in separate incidents.Now, it’s up to Candler Parkers to chip in with a little volunteerism to install the updated signs. Park Pride is providing a “Small Change” grant of $1,800, and the Atlanta Mayor’s Office has offered up a $1,000 “Love Your Block” grant. The funds should cover the anticipated expenses to replace both damaged markers.Both grants require a neighborhood volunteering component, and CPNO isn’t alone in agreeing to participate. Among the others who’ve volunteered to help are Friends of Candler Park, the Mary Lin principal’s office, the pastor at Antioch East Baptist Church, the First Existentialist Congregation Social Justice Guild, Pimsler Hoss Architects and Small Carpenters at Large.
For those of you you were unable to attend the Monday night meeting, here is the power point presentation.
This is the opportunity share your ideas and concerns with the Marta officials and the developers regarding the project planned at the Edgewood/CP Marta Station.
At the August CPNO membership meeting, officials from Marta presented to the neighborhood an overview of the mixed residential commercial project planned for the south side of the Edgewood/CP Marta station. Notes from the presentation will be covered in the August membership meeting minutes, but we wanted to make our members aware of a Rezoning Work Session with Marta officials and the developer, Columbia Ventures. The session will be held at
