A quorum being present the meeting was called to order at 7:12 pm by Dana Fowle, President. Motion to adopt the amended agenda passed. Motion to approve the February minutes passed.
● Sidewalk Update- Silvia Edelstein reported on the Sidewalk Repair Project. It will cost an additional $54,000 for curbing. We will be looking for additional funding from the City of Atlanta or resident donations.
● Zoning- Bill Morris
● Dana Fowle will be meeting with Amir Faroki, District 2 City Councilman, Friday, March 15th to discuss sources of funding for the sidewalks.
1) Variance application for 339 Brooks Avenue
2) BrewPub to replace Mercantile( 1660 DeKalb Ave), but parking is an issue. This application has been deferred until next month.
3) Tree on Clifton (482) will have to be removed, but was not cited on the plan. Zoning Committee could add tree removal to check list.
● NPU N- Matt Kirk
1) Code Enforcement to be “ramped up” by training citizens to be enforcement “officers” through attendance at Code Academy. The Officers are mostly citing houses that are owned by LLCs.
2) Data Centers may be added to the Beltline by using ‘Special Use’ permits.
● Easter Egg Hunt will be held April 14 @ 2pm. The stuffing of the eggs will Friday, March 22nd at the home of Kate and Jay Sandhaus.
● CPNO Movie Night- dates are set. Movies are Incredibles 2(4/20); Mary Poppins Returns(5/18); Ralph Breaks the Internet(8/17); Spider Man into the Spider Verse(9/7). Permits cost $200/film with $100 refunded if area is cleaned up. Apparently applying for permits has been “hit or miss” in the past. Sponsorships are now being solicited.
● Susan Rose has volunteered to be the CPNO liaison to the City regarding movies being shot in the neighborhood.
● Safety- There has been an increase in car break-ins/stolen cars. Plan to show video from Candler Park Drive camera at Members’ Meeting. There is a concern that Zone 6 coverage area has been increased.
