Intrenchment Creek One Water Management Task Force -Stormwater Assessment and Recommendations

At last month’s NPU-V meeting, Jenny Hoffner from American Rivers shared a presentation on behalf of the Intrenchment Creek One Water Management Task Force. You can find their presentation here: IC One Water Presentation 0712_compressed

The headwaters of Intrenchment Creek are hidden beneath an urban landscape defined by asphalt, from the tangled intersection of I-75/85 and I-20 to vast parking lots surrounding the former Olympic Stadium/Turner Field. The dominance of pavement and impervious surfaces combined with aging infrastructure underground has resulted in persistent flooding in the historic downstream neighborhoods.

As the area redevelops, an unprecedented opportunity exists to rethink stormwater management and engage in an equitable, resilient “One Water” approach. To do so will require an unparalleled collaboration between private and public stakeholders across property lines to create impact at a scale that could holistically address and manage the impact of flooding and combined sewer spills.

The City of Atlanta is divided into 25 Neighborhood Planning Units or NPUs, which are citizen advisory councils that make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on zoning, land use, and other planning issues. The NPU system was established in 1974 to provide an opportunity for citizens to participate actively in the Comprehensive Development Plan, which is the city’s long-term vision for the next five, ten, and fifteen years into the future. It is also used as a way for citizens to receive information concerning all functions of city government.
 
See you there!

City of Atlanta announces new COVID-19 Small Business Grants

Greetings,

I thought this information might be helpful to the residents in your planning unit. Last week, Mayor Bottoms announced a new grant program to support Atlanta’s small businesses impacted by COVID-19.

The Resurgence Grant Fund, made possible by a $22 million allocation of federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), offers up to $40,000 to help cover pandemic-related costs, such as complying with requirements necessary for businesses to operate safely, plus a credit of up to $10,000 of no-cost technical assistance services.

In addition to the Resurgence Grant Fund, we are planning to reopen the Strength in Beauty Fund, which provides grants of up to $1,000 to cosmetology professionals like hairstylists and nail technicians.

Applications for the Resurgence Grant Fund and Strength in Beauty Fund both open Monday, August 10 and close Monday, August 31. We hope you will help us spread the word and have provided a flyer for sharing below.
