PHCA Annual Meeting 

Important News & Updates



Piedmont Heights Residents and Neighbors 

On behalf of the Piedmont Heights Civic Association, please see our position and comments below regarding SAP BL-17-063, Gas Station Proposal at 1896 Piedmont Rd and Piedmont Circle.

The Piedmont Heights Civic Association was informally approached some months back regarding a gas station proposal on the property at Piedmont Rd and Piedmont Circle. At that time, The PHCA board members were polled and the opinions were unanimous that they were not in favor of a gas station at that location and the opinion of PHCA remains unchanged.

PHCA is in favor of improvements to this and neighboring properties but the board adamantly believes another gas station would not be a positive addition to our neighborhood, nor would it support the BeltLine's initiative for the following reasons:

- The immediate area within a block is already serviced by 3 gas stations with more in nearby areas.  

- The proposed location is already very congested on both Piedmont Rd and Piedmont Circle. Further concentration of automobile traffic in this location will serve only to increase grid lock and congestion.

- PHCA favor's the overlay district requirements and this does not meet those with regards to the site plan. For example, the placement of the pumps between the building and street do not adhere to the overlay requirements. To be clear, however, we are not in favor of site plan improvements to allow this development to move forward. We are opposed to another gas station.

- The addition of a gas station at this location within the overlay district does not support the BeltLine's goal of putting "Atlanta on a path to 21st century economic growth and sustainability". Supporting more automobiles on our roads is what led us to our current grid locked situation, it will not solve it.

While we are encouraged there is interest in improving this property, PHCA is not in favor of another gas station that is in no way symbiotic with the BeltLine.

Copies of the plan are included in this email.

If you do not agree with this proposal and would like to address your concerns about this proposed plan to the Atlanta BeltLine, please see the information listed below for The Design Review Committee of The Atlanta Beltline. 

 The DRC meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 5pm at the Atlanta BeltLine Offices 


Atlanta Beltline Inc. Office

100 Peachtree Street, NW (Equitable Building)

23rd Floor, Atlanta GA 30333

Comments regarding an application must be made in writing to the DRC to lreid@atlbeltine.org prior to the meeting date. Your comments will be addressed with the DRC prior to the meeting.

    Meet Jennifer Ide – District Six

    From ( Atlanta District Six Newsletter, Jan 11th)

    I am honored and excited to serve as your Atlanta Councilmember for District 6. District 6 has been my family’s home for the past 17 years, and I am passionate about ensuring that it continues to be one of the best places to live, work, and play in the City of Atlanta.

    Atlanta City Council President Felicia Moore has made her council appointments, and I will be serving as chair of the Committee on Council and will serve on the Zoning and Finance/Executive Committees. A description of committees and a schedule of meetings can be found on the council website, and you can watch meetings on Atlanta Channel 26.

    Finally, I want to thank my predecessor, Alex Wan, who served District 6 so well for the past eight years. Alex has been a friend and an advisor and has assured me that he will continue to stay actively involved in our neighborhoods. Thank you, Alex, for all you have done for District 6!

    We are in the process of updating the District 6 website and boosting our social media presence. I welcome your feedback and comments. Please feel free to contact me at (404) 330-6049 or jnide@atlantaga.gov.

    Jennifer Ide is a native Atlantan serving her first term as a member of the Atlanta City Council, representing the citizens of District 6.

    Jennifer is an entrepreneur, lawyer, advocate, and mother who learned early the importance of service to others and to the community.

    From child advocacy and education to free legal services for low-income Atlantans, Jennifer has been part of the force to make our city great.

    Upon graduation from the Westminster Schools and the University of Virginia, Jennifer taught elementary school and worked for Georgia CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate). Jennifer understands first-hand how vital a solid education is to a child’s future, that child’s family, and community. Much like the growth of children, Jennifer believes strong, resilient cities grow over generations, not overnight.

    Jennifer earned a law degree from Emory University School of Law. She clerked for the federal district court and practiced law at Sutherland Asbill & Brennan for 12 years. She has held multiple board and leadership positions in the community and professionally:

    • Chair of the Morningside Elementary School’s School Council
    • Representative on the Grady Cluster Planning Committee
    • Board member of the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers, serving on the executive committee for several years
    • Leadership positions with the State Bar, Georgia Association of Women Lawyers, and Atlanta Legal Aid
    • Graduate of Leadership Georgia

    Jennifer has performed pro bono work through Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta, Atlanta Legal Aid, Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, Georgia Legal Services, and Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights.


    In 2012, Jennifer and her sister co-founded Rimidi, a digital health start-up that develops technology to transform healthcare delivery and reduce healthcare disparities. The company recently partnered with global pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly to provide help for people who use insulin to manage diabetes.

    Jennifer has lived in Morningside for 17 years with her husband Matt. They have four daughters. Jennifer is a long-time member of Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Midtown.
