MLPA POSITION ON RENEW ATLANTA PLANS FOR MONROE / BOULEVARD–MLPA believes that the issues with traffic and pedestrian safety on Monroe must be addressed in a holistic way that does not simply transfer the problem to another part of the neighborhood. For over a year, the MLPA has been working with the City of Atlanta and RenewAtlanta to communicate this. We recently met with Renew Atlanta again, and forwarded this letter to their office and our City Council Representatives. See the Committees>Traffic page for more info.
