Slides from ULI / mTAP Presentation to Mechanicsville Community

Early last month, the Urban Land Institution Center for Leadership’s mTAP participants delivered a presentation to the Mechanicsville community that included their findings and ideas about how the community could move forward in addressing some of our neighborhood’s challenges. Thank you so much to the presentation team for their hard work on this! It goes a long way to validating our organizing work and makes our advocacy stronger and more compelling as we work to build a better future for the Mechanicsville community.

You can find the slides from that presentation here:
mTAP 2020 – Atlantas Next Unicorn – Integrating Mechanicsville_compressed

Presentation synopsis:

ATLANTA’S NEXT UNICORN NEIGHBORHOOD: Integration of Mechanicsville

Mechanicsville sits in the shadow of downtown Atlanta. This neighborhood is in the NPU-V, one of the oldest neighborhoods within Atlanta and the mTAP team was requested to identify methods for revitalization. With a large study area for the scope and maneuvering the constraints of virtual interaction, the group targeted easily accessible community feedback to gauge prospects for Mechanicsville’s future. Expanding on the 2016 LCI Study and 2004 Mechanicsville Community Development Plan, the recommendations largely focused on enhancing leadership (Community Quarterbacks!), developing public-private partnerships, strategizing placemaking of streets ad edges, focusing on community wellness and strengthening the Cradle to College Education Pipeline.

Client: Senya Zaitsev, Sunny ETC; Tommy Cooper; and Jason Dozier

Murphy Crossing community survey: your input is needed!

Hello neighbors!

The Murphy Crossing site is the former location of the old State Farmer’s Market, at 1000 Murphy Ave SW. Atlanta BeltLine Inc. has acquired this property and plans to redevelop it. A coalition of neighbors representing neighborhood associations and NPUs has organized themselves as the Murphy Crossing Coalition and has developed a survey to help ensure that the redevelopment of Muphy Crossing is beneficial to current and future area residents. Please take this survey as soon as possible and share with neighbors!

This survey is for individuals, not households! If there are multiple people living in your household, we encourage everyone who’s interested to fill out a survey.

For more information, you can contact us at MurphyMasterplan@gmail.com

City of Atlanta announces new COVID-19 Small Business Grants

Greetings,

I thought this information might be helpful to the residents in your planning unit. Last week, Mayor Bottoms announced a new grant program to support Atlanta’s small businesses impacted by COVID-19.

The Resurgence Grant Fund, made possible by a $22 million allocation of federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), offers up to $40,000 to help cover pandemic-related costs, such as complying with requirements necessary for businesses to operate safely, plus a credit of up to $10,000 of no-cost technical assistance services.

In addition to the Resurgence Grant Fund, we are planning to reopen the Strength in Beauty Fund, which provides grants of up to $1,000 to cosmetology professionals like hairstylists and nail technicians.

Applications for the Resurgence Grant Fund and Strength in Beauty Fund both open Monday, August 10 and close Monday, August 31. We hope you will help us spread the word and have provided a flyer for sharing below.
