Public Input OPPORTUNITIES
Online Survey #2: This is the second, and final, community engagement survey to inform the Piedmont Heights Master Plan update. The following survey will highlight 10 posters that offer ideas and recommendations to address issues and opportunities in Piedmont Heights, based on initial research and feedback received from the neighborhood. Note that this is not a comprehensive list of recommendations that will be reported in the final plan update. Rather, the concepts above are a sampling of ideas that the project team is seeking your reaction to. Much more will be discussed in the final plan document.
These posters were initially presented to the community at the annual Piedmont Heights annual neighborhood meeting. If you weren't able to share your thoughts at the meeting, now is your chance to do so!

WHAT IS A MASTER PLAN?
A Master Plan is our vision for the future of Piedmont Heights, PiHi. The plan details the current challenges and identifies specific areas and projects to improve our neighborhood.
The Master Plan will include many areas of concern, such as Transportation and Mobility, Pedestrian Accessibility and Safety, Future Land Use, and Development.
PIEDMONT HEIGHTS HAS A MASTER PLAN—WHY DOES IT NEED AN UPDATE?
The current Master Plan, created over 10 years ago, is outdated and does not reflect the significant changes in and around our neighborhood. Once completed, the new Master Plan for Piedmont Heights will be submitted to the Atlanta City Council for review and adoption.
Once approved, the Master Plan will ensure that Piedmont Heights has influence and “a seat at the table” as the City of Atlanta Dept. of Planning embarks on the city-wide planning process in 2024.
Our surrounding neighborhoods, Morningside-Lenox Park, Virginia-Highland, and Midtown, have updated their Master Plans, which have been adopted by the City of Atlanta. We cannot let this opportunity pass.
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! HELP US DETERMINE THE FUTURE OF PIEDMONT HEIGHTS.
We Have a Big Announcement!
September 18, 2023
The Piedmonts Heights Civic Association (PHCA), in conjunction with our sister organizations PiHi Business Alliance and Piedmont Heights Community Improvement Foundation, is thrilled to share some exciting news with you all regarding our Piedmont Heights neighborhood. PHCA is initiating a project to update the Piedmont Heights Master Plan, marking a significant step forward for guiding our community's growth and development.
This decision reflects our commitment to ensuring a sustainable and vibrant future for Piedmont Heights. By updating the Master Plan, as many of our neighboring communities have also done, we aim to address the changing needs and aspirations of our residents and businesses, while enhancing the overall quality of life in our neighborhood.
The updated Master Plan will enable us to evaluate our current strengths, identify areas for improvement, and articulate a clear vision for the future. It will serve as a blueprint that guides future initiatives, projects, and investments in our neighborhood, ensuring that they align with our community's values and objectives.
To ensure a comprehensive and inclusive process, we will be seeking input and feedback from various stakeholders, including residents, local businesses, and community organizations. By involving everyone in this planning process, we can foster a sense of ownership and collective responsibility for the future of Piedmont Heights.
This is an exciting time for our neighborhood, as we embark on this journey together. The updated Master Plan will not only shape the physical landscape of Piedmont Heights but also contribute to fostering a strong sense of community, building connections, and enhancing the overall well-being of our residents and local businesses.
More information and public input opportunities coming soon, so stay tuned!
