    The following is a proposed community paid parking plan from Brandon Richardson of Village Fitness. There have been no votes or determinations and this is currently in the proposal phase. All feedback and input is welcome from business and community members! 

    "Good Afternoon,

    In preparation for the EACA Transportation Committee meeting on 5/23/2024, I am submitting the rough plan for a Community Shared Parking/Shared Revenue Plan, a Community Shared Parking Agreement (Draft), and a third-party Parking Management Company Report (Sample).

    Again the proposal revolves around the implementation of a Paid Community Parking Agreement during peak hours (Thursdays - Sundays, 7 PM - 2 AM). This agreement would allow for a third-party parking management company to operate on private property in the East Atlanta business district via a web-based parking management application.  With the shared revenue/shared parking functionality of the agreement, the community would benefit by the increase of available parking in the business district through economy of scale and management, the revenue raised by the community/business organizations and the revitalization of the business district as a commercial destination through improvements funded by net parking revenues. The key components of this proposal include:

    1. Paid Community Parking Agreement: We would like to see a change in the NC-2 Parking Code to allow for a Paid Community Parking Agreement during the specified hours. This agreement would enable private property owners and businesses to participate in a structured parking arrangement during peak nightlife hours.
    1. Community Support: To ensure that our community benefits from this initiative, we propose that 20% of all proceeds generated from the Paid Community Parking Agreement be allocated to the East Atlanta Community Association. This financial support will be invaluable in enhancing the overall well-being of our community, and we aim to work closely with the association to determine the best utilization of these funds. In addition to supporting the East Atlanta Community Association, we also wish to allocate an additional 20% of all proceeds to the East Atlanta Business Association.  We believe that this added revenue could be used fund local initiatives such as Intown CaresGeorgia Works, and other community-based Public Safety, Streetscape, and Beautification programs that have a positive impact on East Atlanta that would keep East Atlanta community members/shareholders safe and better served.  To qualify to become a community shared parking shared revenue partner, the business owner would first be required to guarantee shared community parking during all hours not outlined as high utilization hours per the agreement.
    1. Data: The Analytics-driven, User-friendly, Cloud-based functionality of the Web-Based Application gives us a a proper Business Intelligence tool that accepts and works with multiple data sets. That is key to having real data that is usable and can be presented in a visual format that community members/stakeholders can see, take in, and make informed decisions with.
    1. Resource Management: More Available Community Parking.
    1.  Economy of Scale - A Business Owner that opens a Private Lot that would otherwise be closed to Paid Noncustomers of that Business - increases the total # of available community parking spots.
    1. Management - When parking is free, people may be more likely to leave their vehicles parked for extended periods, resulting in a shortage of available spaces. Paid parking encourages people to park for shorter durations, leaving when their window of time has expired, facilitating turnover, and subsequently a better flow of traffic.

    On Saturday, May 11 EABA joined forces with B*ATL once again to host the Whispers of History walking tour.  We had a great turnout and the weather was perfect! Co-author of the book Images of East Atlanta, Henry Bryant, was our guide as we walked along the front lines of the Battle of Atlanta through EAV and the surrounding neighborhood. Henry shared his extensive knowledge on the places, people and events that play a large part in our village's rich history.

    As an added bonus, tour go-ers and passersby were able to get in in depth look at the Historic Madison Theater through EABA's Friends of the Madison Organization. The FOMO group is dedicated to protecting and revitalizing this amazing historical structure that you may not even know is standing right in the heart of EAV.

    Are you having your own version of FOMO about missing this educational and fascinating opportunity? Check out the info below....

    We are so fortunate to have a dedicated case manager through Intown Care's pilot program in EAV. As a reminder to all, Michael has provided a little clarification on how and when he is available.

    A note from EAV's Intown Cares Case Manager, Michael Nolan: 

    "My actual working hours flex some, but as a rule I am available between 7am and 6pm Monday through Friday.

    This is a general breakdown of my standard work week:

    Mondays: Client appointments, admin work, street outreach

    Tuesdays: 9a-12p open office hours, street outreach in the afternoon

    Wednesdays: 10a-12p Mercy Care clinic in my office

    Thursdays: Client appointments, admin work, street outreach

    Fridays: 9a-12p open office hours

    If you want to see me or refer someone to come see me at my office (488 Moreland Ave SE), Tuesday and Friday mornings are when that is most easily able to happen. If you would like to make an appointment to talk, you can call or text 943-213-7510 anytime 24/7. If I am not immediately available when you call or text, it is because I am working with someone. Voicemails and texts are responded to within 48 business hours (if a response is required), but that doesn't mean I am not already working on the situation.

    I don't take referrals or discuss work via social media because it is important for me to be able to keep solid records and that is impossible when communication is happening all over the place. If you would like my email address to communicate that way, send a text and I'll be happy to provide it."

    See more about this program in the recent AJC article HERE.

    Excerpt: 

    "The enhanced support for unhoused residents in East Atlanta is part of a pilot program through Intown Cares, a local nonprofit organization, that aims to target homelessness through a dedicated case manager.

    Counselor Michael Nolan spends 40 hours a week on the ground making connections with unhoused residents and helping them get a roof over their heads."

    This year’s East Atlanta Strut will be Saturday, Sept. 28, from noon until 6 p.m. The attached map shows this year’s proposed footprint, which includes street closures similar to pre-Covid Struts.


    The parade will go down Glenwood Avenue from Patterson to Moreland starting at noon. After that, much of Flat Shoals and Glenwood in the business district will remain closed until 6 p.m. There will be activities in the street, and a limited number of booths for sponsors. Vendor markets will not be located on Glenwood or Flat Shoals. The Strut wants your thoughts on this plan. Email info@eastatlantastrut.com Thanks.
