December 6, 2018 marked the launch of the new unified organization for Little 5 Points. The Little 5 Points Alliance welcomed over 120 commercial property owners, new business owners as well as business owner of more than 20+ years, Inman Park and Candler Park residents as well as surrounding neighbors. Little 5 Corner Tavern was bustling with good energy and a lot of love for Little 5 Points and its future. The launch party introduced the volunteer chartering board of directors who have committed their time and expertise to stand up the new organization.
The event featured the new Findley Plaza design (https://l5pa.com/findley-plaza-1/) with an estimated beginning of the process to start after Memorial Day 2019. The new Findley Plaza will feature a flexible community space that will welcome everyone. The Little 5 Points Community Improvement District is working with the City of Atlanta on a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to be able to manage, sustain, secure and program the plaza once the construction is completed sometime in Spring of 2020.
The Findley Plaza Granite Tile and Founding Member program was introduced where donors of $1000 or more will receive a granite tile in the newly redesigned Findley Plaza and become a founding member of the Little 5 Points Alliance. The program has already raised more than $100,000 towards the construction of Findley Plaza and to stand up the Little 5 Points Alliance.
Deadline to donate and get your tile in the new Findley Plaza is March 31, 2019. Donate online or by mail. (https://l5pa.com/donate-1/)
At the beginning of the new year, The L5P Alliance will work on creating a Findley Plaza Activation Plan that will communicate about the construction project and plan for programming of the new space.
The L5P Alliance is seeking anyone who loves Little 5 Points to get involved, contact us and let us know if you want to volunteer for a committee to help make the new Findley Plaza a community space for everyone. Committee meetings will start in February 2019. (https://l5pa.com/contact-us/)
