    Make the Right Call - ATL 311 Day

    On 311 Day (March 11), the City of Atlanta launched its Make the Right Call Campaign. The purpose of the campaign was to emphasize the responsible use of calling 911 versus utilizing 311. 

    Some of the most common non-emergency calls to 911 include issues involving landlord-tenant disputes, barking dogs, noise complaints, illegally parked cars and lost and found property. While these concerns are important, the City encourages residents to recognize that 911 should be strictly reserved for genuine emergencies, involving immediate threats to health, safety, property, house fires, vehicle accidents or ongoing criminal activities.

    By making the right call, our E911 system is able to address true emergencies and create a safer Atlanta for residents and visitors.

    Georgia Works is keeping EAV clean! Thanks to joint efforts between EACA/EABA and District 5, this project is underway and will continue as long as funds can be secured. 

    Update from Steve of GA Works:

    "Our efforts produced 3 trash bags and one scrap tire removed for recycling. Heavy focus on sweeping and picking up cigarette butts. Glass sweeping in lots performed. Portland Ave trash cleaned from Joseph Ave to Brownwood Ave. EAV Farmers Market lot required attention."


    What is Georgia Works? A program with the goal of ending homelessness, criminal recidivism, and dependency through programs aimed at personal development in good habits, work ethic and character. The ultimate goal is self sufficiency. Participants are provided shelter and transitional work as they renounce dependency and remain drug and alcohol free.

    Next time you spot them cleaning up EAV, give them a shout of encouragement!  

    This effort would not be possible without donations from District 5, EABA, East Atlanta Santa and community members. Please consider a donation to help support this program as we continue to work towards the ultimate goal of year-round funded clean-ups.  READ MORE + DONATE

    Information from EACA: This is a reminder that construction for the new playground in Brownwood Park started March 18th, with the first couple of weeks dedicated to demolition. Once the playground equipment arrives, installation will begin, with the entire process expected to take about 6 weeks. The current playground will therefore be inaccessible during this time. In addition, the parking lot will be closing temporarily on April 15th. Signs will be posted for circulation around the playground area, and the existing sidewalk will remain open for pedestrian access.

    We're excited about all the developments at Brownwood Park (see broader plan image attached) and look forward to sharing more information as new projects come online. Stay tuned for ways you can support these projects as we continue to make our park thrive!

    The East Atlanta VIllage weekly clean-ups have officially kicked off! Thanks to joint efforts between EACA/EABA and District 5, this project is underway and will continue as long as funds can be secured. Our first official clean-up day was Saturday, March 2. 

    Update from Steve of GA Works:

    "The crew of 6 were efficient in completing the clean up today. We have been averaging 1 bag of trash so far with most of it coming from the parking lots. Today we had 2 due to a messy dumpster in the parking lot between Gresham and Joseph. Overall the area looks clean and will remain as such."

    THANK YOU to those who have already donated to the GoFundMe. We are currently at a total of $6673. Monthly fees for this project total $2100, which equates to $25,200 for the entire year. Please consider donating and/or making this a monthly give for your business or family if possible. Thank you to Liliana Bakhtiari of District 5 for the donation of $2100, covering 1 month of service.
