2013 Buckhead Eco Collection
Thank you to all the registrants who showed up despite the weather, all of our dedicated volunteers, Atlanta City Council Representatives Howard Shook and Yolanda Adrean, sponsors and vendors for making this the most successful Eco Collection yet. On March 23rd, 2013, Livable Buckhead and Live Thrive teamed up once again with Atlanta City Council Representatives Howard Shook and Yolanda Adrean to bring Buckhead residents and businesses an eco-friendly way to do some spring cleaning. This event provided an opportunity to easily and safely dispose of many of the items they’ve wanted to get rid of, but aren’t safe for the regular trash pick-up.
If you’ve missed this event, you still have an opportunity to attend a similar event being sponsored by Atlanta City Council Representative Carla Smith and Live Thrive on April 27, 2013. Click here for more information.
GA400 Trail Presentation – 30% Design
During the summer, Livable Buckhead, working with AECOM, met with stakeholders, including residents, civic associations, commercial property owners and community leaders to gain feedback for the design of the GA400 trail. That feedback, along with experts’ advice, has led to the completion of approximately 30% of the design work for the trail project. Livable Buckhead’s executive director, Denise Starling along with AECOM design and planning consultant Carlos Perez, are now re-engaging stakeholders with the new designs.
