Work Begins on North Buckhead's Master Plan

According to the NBCA, North Buckhead, Atlanta’s fourth most populous neighborhood, is experiencing spectacular growth and success, but needs a broadly supported plan to guide it to even greater heights and better quality of life.

We all experience the neighborhood's traffic congestion and many other problems. We love our wonderful neighborhood, but...  Can anything be done to make it better? 

During the next six to ten months, NBCA plans help organize a team of neighborhood residents, businesses, non-profits, city officials and other government representatives to take a hard look at how our neighborhood is working and what can be done to jointly make it better. The following sentence summarizes this historic project's objective: 

North Buckhead, Atlanta's fourth most populous neighborhood, is experiencing spectacular growth and success but needs a broadly supported plan to guide it to even greater heights and better quality of life by addressing our growing traffic congestion; our limited pedestrian access to parks, schools, and shopping; our speeding; our areas where land use should be better; and other aspects which diminish our quality of life.  

We are especially delighted by the support we are receiving in conducting this project from our City Councilman Howard Shook and from Director Charletta Wilson Jacks of the city's Office of Planning. We also appreciate the insights and guidance of Caleb Racicot of TSW Planners|Achitects|Landscape Architects, who we have hired to help manage the project and produce the plan document. 

Please read this three page explanation of what's will be happening and how we got to this point.
