Nov. 3 General Election Polling Place Change

Though there are two voting precincts in Mechanicsville, most of our neighbors live in precinct 04V and typically vote at Dunbar Neighborhood Center at 477 Windsor Street W. Due to COVID-19, that polling center was combined with the center at Paul L. Dunbar Elementary School next door at 500 Whitehall Terrace SW.

Please note that for the November 3 General Election, the 04V polling place will be changing again back to Dunbar Neighborhood Center.

Please reach out to communications@mechanicsvilleatl.org if you have any questions about this.

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
