Follow Up – Parks & Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan – Public Engagement Postponed

Good morning Mr. Ward

I hope all is well! I recently attended an NPU-V meeting on 3/9 and shared some information about public workshops and engagement for the Parks & Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan. I am reaching out to provide an update in light of recent changes. Could you please share the below information with your network, as well as with those meeting attendees?

COVID-19 continues to be top of mind as each of us experience the influx of information and daily developments. While we work through this crisis, there are a lot of unknowns. In this regard, we have officially postponed all (5) public workshops until further notice. We have also halted all public outreach to promote the comprehensive master park and recreation plan.

While I do not yet have a clear time line on when we will have the green light to proceed, I will reach back out as soon as I have more information. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Once we have updates, I would love to attend another NPU-V meeting to share updated information and new workshop dates.

I will keep you posted as we have more information. Stay healthy and well – thanks so much!

Virtual Meeting TODAY (Tuesday, March 17th at 6:30 p.m.) on Conducting Meetings During City of Atlanta Closure

Good afternoon, NPU Leaders and NPU Planners.

As you know, we have been working diligently to explore options for providing support to the NPUs and neighborhoods, most of whom are impacted by the City of Atlanta’s recent ban on public gatherings of more than 50 people. Today, we tested out a couple of options, and would like to share an update with you this evening at 6:30 p.m. I know this is short notice, but we really want to be able to get this moving as quickly as possible. If you cannot attend, please ensure that someone from your board is present. I will send you a calendar invitation separately that can be shared.

This meeting will double as an update and discussion of options; AND a demonstration of how you might be able to conduct virtual meetings. Please join this meeting by clicking this link from your cell phone, laptop, iPad/tablet, or desktop computer and join “as a guest.” You do not need to be technologically savvy to participate. And feel free to share this email with your executive board members, neighborhood presidents, or anyone connected to your NPU that you think may find this useful.
