DINE/SHOP FOR CHESHIRE BRIDGE–Hooray! The repairs to I-85 are finally complete so we can get back to normal. Come out Wednesday, May 17- Saturday, May 20 to help our neighborhood businesses along Cheshire Bridge recover. While the increased traffic was an annoyance for us, it was an economic hardship for them. Let’s help them recoup their losses by joining your friends and neighbors shopping on this important commercial corridor. The event kicks off on Wednesday, May 17, 5:30-8:30 PM–Walk on over to shop and/or dine at one of these establishments.
I-85 COLLAPSE NEWS–Traffic seems to be returning to normal now that I-85 has reopened. Thanks to the MLPA Traffic Committee for their work to ensure the safety of our neighbors. The Pace Car campaign to publicize our efforts to make sure our traffic laws are observed will continue. You can join the program by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
