You’re Invited to Join the Just Energy Academy

Greetings and Happy New Year Family!

There is an African-American proverb that says, “each one, teach one”, and at the Partnership for Southern Equity we take that to heart especially in our leadership development work, which is at the core of what we do. That’s why I would like to personally invite you or someone you know to participate in our upcoming Just Energy Academy (JEA).

This unique seven-month leadership development program was created to educate the next generation of equity leaders on energy equity and climate justice issues. JEA is a competitive program for youth and adults who aspire to be energy equity leaders in their communities.

Deadline for application is Friday, January 18, 2019. Apply today!

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or our Just Energy team.

I look forward to seeing you there.

GA WAND Open House 1/31

VeloCity 2019

Flyer: VeloCity Overview 2019

Good morning –

I am excited to let you know that the second annual VeloCity fundraising cycling event benefitting Grady Health System will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2019.  Our inaugural ride in 2018 hosted nearly 1,000 cyclists and we are hopeful that it will continue to grow not only as a fundraiser for Grady, but as a premiere sporting event for the City of Atlanta.

As chair of your NPU, we wanted to make sure you were aware of this event as it may involve portions of your neighborhood area.  Three of our rides, 25-, 62-, and 100-miles, will start and end at Mercedes-Benz Stadium/Home Depot Backyard and head southwest towards Chattahoochee Hills.  None of these routes require street closures, though there will be some temporary holding of traffic at intersections for the first 5 miles.  Our 5-mile family-oriented City Ride will start and end at the same location; however, the route will be entirely in downtown Atlanta and will impact traffic patterns for a period of time that morning.

Our event is staged with the assistance of Medalist Sports, a Georgia-based company with decades of experience producing safe, high quality, professional and for-cause cycling events across the nation.  We are also working with all of the appropriate planning and law enforcement entities on the necessary permitting and safety requirements.  Please know that our goal is to minimize any impact on the communities the ride goes through.

Of course, we would love if you would consider riding and encouraging others in your NPU to do the same!   This is a fun event supporting one of Atlanta’s most critical institutions and a great way to enjoy being outside with friends, family and others who love both cycling and Grady.  We’ve also got an indoor cycling component if road-cycling is not your speed!

Thank you in advance for your support.  We hope that you will let us know what additional information we can provide and have attached a one-page overview for your convenience.  You can also learn about the ride at www.velocityatlanta.com.  In addition, we are available to speak with you by phone or present at an upcoming NPU meeting.

Sincerely,

Joselyn Baker

NPU-V January Meeting

Join us for our monthly meeting for residents of Neighborhood Planning Unit V! 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. NPU-V encompasses the communities of Mechanicsville, Summerhill, Peoplestown, Pittsburgh, Adair Park, and Capitol Gateway.

The host community is Adair Park and the meeting will be held at The Met Atlanta (675 Metropolitan Parkway, Suite 4000 Atlanta, GA 30310).
