Signal Removal- Avon Ave at Orlando St/Westmont Rd

From the ATL DOT:

The City of Atlanta's Department of Transportation is pleased to inform you that the construction package including removal of the traffic signals at the intersection of Avon Avenue with Orlando Street and Westmont Road is out for bids.  The deadline is for bid submission is currently set for Tuesday, May 4, 2021. 

Be advised that planned intersection upgrades will include the replacement of electronic traffic signals with stop signs.  Specifically:

  • Removal traffic signal at Avon Ave @ Westmont Rd/Orlando St and conversion to an all-way stop intersection
  • Refreshed yellow center line pavement markings beginning 50 feet back from the stop bar on Orlando St and Westmont Rd
  • Installation of stop signs with "All Way" plaques on the right side at all approaches
  • Installation of stop bar on north approach to Westmont Rd.
  • Installation of ADA-compliant ramps at existing Orlando St crosswalk
  • Substituting grass for existing landscape areas at the corners of Orlando St/Westmont Rd and Avon Ave/Westmont Rd to improve intersection sight distance

 Because upgrades to the intersection of Avon Avenue with Orlando Street and Westmont Road are part of a large package of signal improvement projects, it is difficult to provide a start window for work on these two intersections.  We will continue to keep you updated as the project progresses from procurement to construction in our monthly District and NPU dashboard reports.

April Community Visioning Sessions from CCI

Help Improve Community Engagement in Atlanta

Way too often, community engagement is just a checkbox for decisions made in Atlanta. Join us as we collaboratively brainstorm what the future of community should look like: we will dream big about what community engagement could be and ideate ways to get us there.

Click here to RSVP:
www.civicatlanta.org/engage

Saturday, April 24 // 12pm
Tuesday, April 27 // 11am
Thursday, April 29 // 7pm

How do we go beyond representation and build true community voice, support, and accountability into our city's formal processes? If community engagement in Atlanta worked to its fullest potential, what would it look like?

The Center for Civic Innovation, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization in Atlanta focused on ending inequality, is hosting three community sessions to gain input on recommendations to improve community engagement in our city. We are prioritizing our engagement efforts on South and Westside Atlanta residents, given the impact of inequality in these often historic neighborhoods.

MARTA TO RESTORE BUS ROUTES SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19


The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) will restore 58 previously suspended bus routes on Saturday, April 24, after completing the installation of state-of-the-art air filtration and purification systems on all buses and receiving support from the federal government to enforce mask wearing. MARTA suspended 70 of its 110 bus routes on April 20, 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic was intensifying and the need for maintaining social distance was paramount to reducing the spread of the virus. In the months since, 12 routes have been reinstated as conditions allowed

"We understand the reduction in bus routes created a hardship for many of our customers, and we are appreciative of their patience as we balanced providing a service with protecting public health," said MARTA General Manager and CEO Jeffrey Parker. "Public transit by its very nature goes against social distancing and by placing all 540 buses in our fleet on a reduced number of routes a year ago, we were able to provide more room for our customers and hopefully slow the spread of the virus. With the installation of filters that rid the air of harmful pathogens and the new federally mandated mask requirement, we feel we can now safely return to full bus service."

Over the past few months, MARTA has installed Bipolar Ionization air filters on all buses, in addition to the antimicrobial filters already in place. These newest air-filtering devices eliminate airborne pathogens and deliver clean air every 75 seconds, without producing ozone or other harmful by-products. All buses will continue to be thoroughly disinfected every 24 hours, as well as cleaned mid-service as needed. Protective polycarbonate shields remain around all bus operator cabs and free masks are available on board every bus, either through a mask dispenser located near the front door, or from an operator when dispensers are running low.

"Protecting the health of our customers and the bus operators who have continued to work throughout the pandemic providing an essential service, was our first priority," said MARTA Deputy General Manager of Operations Collie Greenwood. "It was imperative that every bus was equipped with an advanced air filtering system and that all customers were masked before returning to pre-COVID bus service levels."

MARTA's Bus Operations and Planning Department will spend the next few weeks preparing for full route restoration by updating digital and print bus schedules, removing signage from previously closed bus stops, and assigning routes to operators.

For bus route information and videos detailing the restoration of service and COVID-19 protocols visit https://www.itsmarta.com/servicerestoration.aspx. For real-time service alerts follow @MARTAservice on Twitter or download the MARTA On The Go app.

    Policing Alternatives - Help, not Harassment

     

    Have you ever seen someone acting out in public and wished you could get them help instead of having to call the police?

    Now there's an alternative - PAD, the Policing Alternatives and Diversion program, that allows you to call 311 to request assistance, not enforcement.

    PAD responds to non-emergency quality of life concerns related to mental health, substance use or extreme poverty. This includes:

    •  Disturbances (such as someone yelling outside a business or blocking traffic)
    • Public indecency (such as someone naked or bathing in a public place)
    • Welfare (such as someone asking for food or help)
    • Mental health (such as someone who appears disoriented, erratic, or is talking to themselves)
    • Substance use (such as someone using drugs in public)
    • Basic needs (such as someone in need of shelter and sleeping outside)
    • Public health (such as someone getting food from a dumpster or using the bathroom in a public place)

    To make a referral for non-emergency concerns, simply dial 311 (or 404-546-0311 outside the city limits).
    PAD only accepts Community Referrals through the 311 phone line, not through the mobile app or 311website.

    Thurs., 3/18 at noon - 1 pm: webinar - Trees Atlanta (Evaluating the proposed TPO)

    From Trees Atlanta:

    You may have received an agenda item for March or April NPU meetings regarding the new Tree Protection Ordinance (TPO) as a non-voting item. The ordinance itself is scheduled to be voted on by City Council on May 3. Trees Atlanta is hosting a series of lunch time informational sessions (Thursdays) to help you understand the new ordinance that has been submitted to City Council.

    The materials recently sent to you from City Planning includes the proposed ordinance language along with a fee assessment study (which is required to be distributed to NPUs for review and comment, but is non-voting).

    In short, the assessment is the basis for a fee change included in the TPO ordinance that is currently in review. The cost for recompense for trees removed is being adjusted to $230 per inch from the current fee value of $100 + $30 per inch (DBH: "diameter at breast height" the standard for measuring tree size).

    There are many changes in the new ordinance. Many standards included still require more modifications to make it better for the city, residents and business community. A wide variety of stakeholders have an interest in how the TPO changes. Trees Atlanta would like to help people understand the changes and and the amendments that are still needed before a vote occurs.

    Understand the TPO - join us in Thursday's webinar. If you are able, please attend our lunch hour webinars happening this Thursday (there will be 4 weekly sessions covering different parts of the ordinance).

    Register here and you can attend any or all of the sessions: Evaluating Atlanta's Proposed Tree Protection Ordinance (TPO).


    In addition, here is a link to Trees Atlanta's previously published statement on the January draft of the ordinance: Is the New Draft Tree Protection Ordinance Good?
