The NEXT GDOT Roundabout

By Fire Station 29

Last chance to weigh in with GDOT!

Let them know that the intersection by Fire Station 29 cannot be closed for ~10 months during construction!


Here is some suggested wording you can copy and paste:

Conditional Support

General Comments:

Not opposed to the roundabout in general.

I am opposed to the 10-month, 5-mile detour that will cripple local businesses, adversely impact residents and the efficiency of Fire Station 29, and make the work of the mail carriers who have offices in the USPS Midtown Carrier Annex Post Office at 415 Plasters Ave NE Ste 100, Atlanta, GA 30324 impossibly difficult.

I request GDOT return the project to the concept phase and invite all businesses, property owners, and residents within the 2-mile radius to assist in alternate detour and exit closure impact.

I request GDOT engage more inclusive communication tools with impacted stakeholders. It appears that GDOT has not sought to involve the public until very recently with a postcard, after it approved the project concept (on 4/7/2020) and preliminary design (on 2/2/2022). Postcards are inadequate for a project as significant as this.

I request GDOT engage the Piedmont Heights Business Alliance and the Piedmont Heights Civic Association in assisting with a Public Hearing Open House (PHOH) to engage impacted stakeholders.

This exit will impact 1,000s of residents and 1,000s of small businesses who have been hit three times in the last year: 1) Cheshire Bridge taking 1.2 years to rebuild 2) Atlanta Gas Light Project going up and down Piedmont Road 3) Monroe/Armour Drive Roundabout Construction that happened all within a year and a half in the area, we would like to come up with an alternative to the proposed plans. Many of the businesses are trying to recover from the 30-60% loss in business caused by these transportation projects. And needless to say, this is on top of the recovery efforts of COVID-19.

What’s the market like if you’re ready to ‘right size’ your home?

We all treasure homes where we have made precious life memories. We value them far more than the latest news about “housing market” prices.

Which is why the decision to right size and enter the market can be a difficult one.

This summer I helped a wonderful woman find a new home. This meant leaving the house she shared with her late husband for 50 years. We talked about her goals for buying a place with low maintenance, a sense of community, and where she could socialize when she wanted and also feel safe alone. Together we planned the purchase and the move. Now her midcentury modern ranch is rented to a young family, and she is enjoying a lifestyle that includes a beautiful pool to relax by.

If you are thinking a change would be good for you, just give me a call. We can craft a plan that includes the true value of your home that is personalized to you. I can show you how the Sotheby’s International Realty brand can make a huge difference for you no matter what your goals may be.
