Dawn’s Been Busy!!

The last couple months have kept Dawn very busy.  Her dedication to honoring fellow agents recovering from breast cancer was a driving force behind the Keller Williams Live Luxury effort to make the Breast Cancer Awareness Holiday Event a success.  But she wasn’t done volunteering her time there… she is sporting her hard hat, clipboard, and making her way through the Garden District each morning keeping the Midtown Sidewalk project on task.

Live Luxury Team Delivering Bags

On Thursday, December 12 the Live Luxury division, a boutique division of Keller Williams Luxury International and the award-winning Southeast Region and Johnny Was, a clothing designer, hosted a festive holiday party in support of breast cancer awareness in honor of Luxury Agent Linde Moore. Kay & Glen Evans opened their home at The Charles in Buckhead for the event, which was beautifully decorated in white, gold, and shades of pink. White and pink peonies  arranged with hydrangeas filled the club room at The Charles  alongside an ornately decorated wreath and white Christmas tree. Luxury agents came together to help with the decorations, as well as adorning the tree and wreath with custom ornaments displaying Team Linde to honor their fellow agent in her recovery of breast cancer.

With delicious food catered by The Capital Grille, the event was elegant and intimate. The agents provided a tribute to Team Linde by collecting and organizing comfort bags for women going through chemotherapy. Along with the comfort bags donation, Johnny Was manager Jordan Payne donated scarves. All the items were donated to the Piedmont Breast Cancer Center.

Kay Evans wants to thank everyone involved with making the event as memorable as possible, and for making a difference in the lives of countless women.

WHERE ARE THE NEW SIDEWALKS GOING?
Rain or shine... the job must go on!

Rain or shine… the job must go on!

The sidewalks being repaired follow a specified route pictured in the map above.  While our Midtown Garden District Master Plan (MGDMP) outlines a much larger area of disrepair, the funding limitations for this particular project required we find a way to prioritize one area over another.  It is our hope that future sidewalk funding will be available to continue repairing our sidewalks.  For the scope of this project, RENEW Atlanta and MNA referred to the MGDMP and agreed to primarily target major traffic thoroughfares based on local resident and visitor use and the level of disrepair along that route.  We hope that the selection of these high volume streets will result in all of our residents enjoying some segment of this major community improvement in their daily route.  Section 4.5 of the Midtown Garden District Master Plan summarizes the areas of sidewalk repair need and the community’s feedback on how to prioritize repair efforts.

ARE ALL THE SIDEWALKS ON THE STREET BEING REPLACED?
No.  Only sidewalks in disrepair and/or those that are not ADA compliant are being replaced.  This means you may see a “square” here and there rather than a whole section being replaced.  This helps to manage the budget and maximize the improvements.  In some cases, there are extenuating circumstances that inhibit the ability to bring the right of way into to ADA compliance.  The RENEW Atlanta team is doing their best to resolve all of these conflicts and MNA is working with them to understand the hurdles.  However, our underground sewer line system and tree canopy can occasionally present a conflict.  If you have questions about a particular area, please email our VIBE Committee.
